The Ministry of Interior (MOI), in cooperation with the concerned entities in the country, has succeeded in facilitating the expatriate's procedures, by reducing their time and efforts, and avoiding any obstacles that could affect the recruiters or migrant workers. In 2019, Qatar Visa Centers (QVCs) have received (200179) visitors, and provided (1118687) procedures through 14 QVCs in six countries, namely, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Nepal, and Philippines.
QVCs project, which was launched by the MOI in October 2018, aims to simplify the recruitment procedures in general, protect the expatriate's rights, ensure their safety, and facilitate the procedures for their entry into Qatar. QVCs also contribute to document the expatriates recruitment process and accelerate their employment process under simplified, smooth and effective procedures, while ensuring the recruiters rights.
Major Abdullah Khalifa Al Mohannadi, Director of the Visa Support Services Department at the General Directorate of Passports, affirmed that QVCs project comes as part of MOI's endeavors to provide distinguished electronic services that will help to accomplish its services, and save time and efforts. In addition, MOI in collaboration with the concerned entities has succeeded in launching14 centers in six countries in the first phase of the QVCs project.
