The Qatari General Directorate of Passports said that domestic labour can be hired from the Philippines, India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Ethiopia, Bangladesh and Eritrea.
The ministry said that the labour entry policy will be based on the travel-and-return rules set by a state committee tasked with handling the COVID-19 crisis.
Last year, Qatar’s Ministry of Administrative Development and Labour announced resuming the processing of applications from companies for employing migrant workers after recruitment was suspended due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
In addition, the ministry has said the recruitment applications will be handled in line with specific regulations on a case-by-case basis including assessment of the hiring company’s adherence to pay obligations along one year and its provision of appropriate residence for its workers.
