Recruitment In Qatar: What Procedures Does A New Employer Have To Follow To Locally Recruit Workers?

If you are an employer planning to recruit new employees in Qatar, there are certain steps to follow in the new process of recruitment in the country.

Here is the step-by-step guide in recruiting new employees locally:

1. Once the change of employer (requested by the worker) is approved by ADLSA, the employer will receive a confirmation SMS from ADLSA.

2. The employer is then responsible for filling the information of the employment contract with the new worker through ADLSA’s Digital Authentication System for a Multilingual Employment Contract.

After filling the information, the employer should print the employment contract to be signed by himself/herself and the worker, and then will upload the signed copy with the other required documents onto the digital platform.

Upon ADLSA’s confirmation that the employment contract has been authenticated, the employer must pay the fees for contract authentication and print the authenticated employment contract, which will be automatically sent to the Ministry of Interior’s programme for ID issuance purposes. He/she must provide a copy of the authenticated employment contract to the worker.

3. The employer should log into the Ministry of Interior’s Metrash services webpage to request a new Qatari ID card (QID) for the worker.

4. Once the QID procedure is completed, the employer should provide the new QID and the health card to the new worker.
