As promised, Qatar’s Visa Center finally opens in Pakistan and has inaugurated its first branch in Islamabad.
The development has made Pakistan amongst the eight countries to have a Qatari visa facilitation center for easy processing of workers’ visas, looking for a job in the Gulf state.
Earlier, the Qatari ministry has announced setting up visa centers in 8 countries to facilitate citizens seeking employment opportunities. A letter was also sent to the PM assistant regarding this matter.
The details stated that these facilitation centers will benefit shortlisted candidates so that they would be able to secure a contract even before they arrive in the country.
The main motive of these visa centers is to ensure smooth and easy recruitment process by allowing applicants and that all necessary requirements are met 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. What’s more, they are also expected to protect worker’s rights and prevent exploitation at the hands of employers and intermediaries. This will also help speed up the process of recruitment.
