Recruitment Made Easy

The offer was extended by Qatar’s Foreign Minister in his meeting with Shah Mehmood Qureshi on the sidelines of United Nations General Assembly session in New York.

Last year, Qatar had announced to grant visas to Pakistani citizens on their arrival in the Kingdom.

  4. Visa is granted for (30) days free of charges and extendable for a similar period after confirming the return ticket.
  5. Persons coming directly from Pakistan should have a certificate of vaccination against polio according to the procedures currently in place.
