  • Gaining residency in Qatar is a complex process and restrictions apply.
  • The main areas to take into consideration are;
  • The Qatari authorities have placed restrictions on certain categories of people. As such, Residence Permits currently cannot be gained by;
  •  Nationals from certain countries – the list of affected countries is not publicised and changes without notice.
  • Those aged 60 or above
  • Unmarried partners – only married partners may be sponsored and therefore obtain the appropriate residence permit. It is unlawful in Qatar for unmarried partners to cohabit.
  • Male children above 25 years old and not enrolled in higher education
  • For reasons that are beyond our control, it is unfortunately not possible for female employees sponsored by the British Council to sponsor accompanying family members.
  • Male employees can only sponsor their accompanying family members if their salary is equal or greater than QAR10,000.
  • Holders of passports containing an Israeli stamp will not be granted visas to Qatar
  • Successful candidates will need to provide many documents, some of which must be attested. This is mandatory to gain residency in Qatar.
  • Medical tests are carried out in-country before a residence permit is granted – tests for major infectious diseases are carried out. The British Council has no control over this process.
  • It takes a minimum of 4 months for a person to be able to sponsor spouse and children to gain residency in Qatar. In general, family members will not be able to accompany the staff member to post from the onset of the contract.
  • Distance and online learning degrees are not currently recognised by the Qatari government. This prevents the British Council from securing a Residence Permit for concerned applicants.
  • Fulfilling the above requirements does not guarantee that we will be able to secure the appropriate visa or permit for you or your family members. Unfortunately, the British Council has no control over such governmental decisions.
