A special committee has been set up which considers family visa applications and takes a decision within three working days. 

Following this, the applicant will receive a text message on their mobile phone informing whether the application was approved or rejected.


For private sector employees seeking a family visa, the minimum monthly salary must be in the QR7000-QR10,000 range and should have a suitable profession. 

Women who have a Qatari residency permit and are willing to bring their husbands must follow the same rules.


Visa for parents similar to family visa

The new law makes the conditions for residency visa for parents similar to family visas but the applicant must confirm that he/she is the sole breadwinner of the parents and his/her profession must suit the specific categories, as Al Atiyyah pointed out.


The official said that the aim is to make the procedures and conditions easier for expatriates to bring their families and if some conditions need to be changed or reviewed, MoI will do it in a way not contradicting the provisions of the law regulating the entry, exit and residency of expatriates.
