The Advisory (Shura) Council on Monday approved a draft law on permanent residency.
Under the provisions of the draft law, the Minister of Interior may grant a permanent residency identification card to a non-Qatari if he meets the conditions specified in the draft law.
Also, a decision by the Minister of Interior may grant this ID to the children of a Qatari woman married to a non-Qatari, as well as those who offered valuable services to the country and people with special capabilities that the country needs.
The draft law stipulates the establishment of a committee at the Ministry of Interior to consider requests of granting permanent residency ID in accordance with the provisions of the draft law.
At its weekly session on Monday, the council under the chairmanship of Speaker HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid al Mahmoud discussed the report of the Internal and External Affairs Committee on the draft law and decided to submit its recommendations to the Cabinet.
Meanwhile, members of the council presented a general debate request on the harm caused to the children of divorced or widowed Qatari mother from spouses hailing from the siege countries and make recommendations for relief.
The Advisory Council then decided to refer the debate request to the Internal and External Affairs Committee.
During the session, members of the Advisory Council watched a presentation about the website of the Advisory Council, which will be launched soon.
The website will contain all information related to the Advisory Council's activities, and will document the council's activities, statements, conferences and foreign participations.
