Indians coming to Qatar should ensure certain things before their visit. Below is a check List provided by the Government of India, for Indians getting employed in Qatar, related to the employment contract, sponsor or employer, langauge, passport, visa, working conditions, photocopies and photographs, air ticket and air travel.
We provide professional Indian attestation services for all types of documents, at affordable prices. We can help you get quick attestation of all your documents from the various government agencies in India and Qatar.
Check with your agent the exact details (name, address, tel./ fax nos) of your Qatari sponsor / employer (known as KAFIL) - whether it is a person or a company, and the person who is supposed to supervise your work. Get the telephone number of this person and talk to him before leaving India. Ask him or the agent about who is going to receive you at the airport, how will you be transported to your residence or work place, etc. If you are not familiar with Arabic and English and if this employer knows only Arabic or English, then you should ask someone else who knows Arabic / English to talk to him over the telephone from India in your presence to get all the details and finalise your programme accordingly.
Knowledge of English & Arabic is very useful and it would be good if you could pick up some basic Arabic before coming to Qatar.
While having your passport made either through the agent or directly, you must furnish your correct particulars and correct address. This is also important in the case of any tragedy which (God forbid) may occur. You must always truthfully record all your particulars. When you get your passport, please check that all your particulars are recorded properly and if there is any mistake you should have it corrected. Do not travel on a passport, which is inaccurate.
Before leaving India, check whether your visa is an appropriate one. The visa may have endorse-ments in Arabic. If you are unable to make out the endorsement - please ask a person who can read Arabic to translate. Do not rely on what the recruiting agent tells you.
Before coming to Qatar you must talk to people who are either working in Qatar or have been to Qatar in the recent past to know about the living conditions and working conditions in Qatar. You must be thoroughly acquainted with all this and you must not come here only on the basis of what your recruiting agent tells you. Do not come to Qatar with pre-conceived notions and be prepared to leave as and when things do not turn out the way you had imagined or wanted it to be.
When you get your air ticket to Qatar you must check when you are going to land and from the airport how you are going to be transported to the place where you are to go.
