Qatar has set price caps for recruiting domestic workers from foreign countries in an effort to end an unjustified rise in such costs.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the Ministry of Labour on Monday published a list of price caps for hiring workers from various countries: Indonesia QR17,000, Sri Lanka QR16,000, the Philippines QR15,000, Bangladesh QR14,000, India QR14,000, Kenya QR9,000 and Ethiopia QR9,000.
The ministries urged citizens and residents to report any abuses or violations committed by the recruitment offices of domestic workers or their failure to implement the decision to set a maximum price for the recruitment of domestic workers.
