Qatar’s Job Visa Center in Pakistan Coming Soon
A few weeks ago, Qatar had announced setting up a job visa center in Pakistan to facilitate those looking for a job in the Gulf state. The latest update is that Qatar’s Visa Facilitation Centers in Karachi and Islamabad will be fully functional by December.
The main motive of these visa centers is to ensure smooth and easy recruitment process by allowing applicants to ensure they meet all the necessary requirements before initiating a contract.
These centers will also ensure that no worker returns to their country after being rendered unfit to obtain a residence permit in Qatar.
Earlier, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi held a bilateral meeting with Qatar’s Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, resulting in powerful economic and trade relations between the two nations.
According to the ARY News, the meetup resulted in a positive gesture by Al Thani announcing employment opportunities to 100,000 Pakistani workers in Qatar.
Qureshi welcomed the Pak-Qatar trade rise by 53%. He also appreciated the formal operationalization of the Hamad Port.
He also highlighted the importance of great economic potential between the nations by the increase in exports of food items, construction material, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, sports goods, and fabrics.
Earlier, Qatar had also approached Pakistan for around 100,000 Pakistani skilled workers to construct the infrastructure of the upcoming FIFA 2022 World Cup.
