Recruiting Expats To Qatar? Here's An Important Guide From The Best Manpower Company In Qatar

Employers in Qatar who are planning to recruit workers from abroad can submit an online request to get the approval of the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA). This procedure is not required for the hiring of residents (expatriates who already have jobs in Qatar) or Qatari nationals.

After getting the Ministry’s approval, sponsors of expat workers need to adhere to the government directives to make their employees’ stay in Qatar legal.

Here are some guidelines provided by the Search and Follow Up Department (SFD) of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) to avoid facing legal charges from recruitment to deployment of your staff:

Instructions for the Employers (Individual, Company, or Establishment)

• Ensure the recruitment of trained and experienced workers.

• Do not employ unnecessary laborers in your firm.

• Approach the competent authorities within 30 days from the date of entry of the expatriate into the country to complete the residence permit procedures.

• Complete the procedures for a residence permit for the workers.

• Do not employ workers if you didn't recruit them.

• Don't harbor absconded or illegal workers, or don't hide them.

• Hand over the passports after getting or renewing residency permits to the workers.

Provide adequate housing for workers.

Process the drafting and documenting of employment contracts.

• Report immediately after the absconding of one of the workers you have recruited to the Search and Follow-up Department.

• Take note that noble behavior has many positive effects, especially at the family level.

• Approach the competent government agencies if there is any problem.
