The Visa Support Services Department of the Ministry of the Interior (MoI) will launch a service that allows Qatari citizens, residents and companies to authorise manpower agencies to complete the recruitment procedures of domestic workers through Qatar Visa Centres (QVCs) abroad. The service will begin from mid-August, after Eid Al Adha holidays.
Authorisation can be done through Metrash2 and MoI website electronically or at MoI Services Centres manually by selecting one of the listed recruitment offices or agencies in some simple and quick steps.
After the authorisation, the recruitment agencies can complete the recruitment process and other steps such as enrollment of biometric data, contract singing and medical examination through Qatar Visa Centres abroad.
“This measure is a continuation of the project to complete work visa procedures for expatriate workforce in their home countries and to simplify recruitment procedures in general while protecting the rights of expatriates and ensure their safe and smooth entry into Qatar,” Major Abdullah al Muhannadi, Director of Visa Support Services Department at the General Directorate of Passports, said during a seminar on Tuesday.
The seminar was organised by the Visa Support Services Department in cooperation with the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA).
Mohannadi said this service aims to guarantee the rights of applicants and ensure the ratification of their contracts by the competent authority in Qatar, in addition to reducing the effort and time for both the applicants and the expatriates.
Mohammed Ali al Meer, Director of Labour Inspection Department, said MADLSA is working on the classification of recruitment agencies operating in the country and evaluating them according to specific professional standards to ensure the best recruitment process.
“This service facilitates the recruitment of domestic workers whereas employment contract will be signed through Qatar Visa Centre in expatriates’ own country thus protecting the workers’ rights,” Meer said.
