'Qatar Visa Center' to be established for Pakistanis
ISLAMABAD - The Qatari government has selected Pakistan to be one of eight countries where “Qatar Visa Center” will be established to facilitate Pakistanis who want to work in Qatar, the Qatari embassy informed the Prime Ministers’ Special Assistant Zulfikar Bukhari in a letter.

In the letter sent to the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis & HRD, the Qatari embassy informed that in the first phase, eight visa centers will be set up across the world to facilitate the workers from different countries in the process of making contracts with their employers before arriving in Qatar.

“Qatar Visa Centers” will also help in protecting the rights of the workforce in case they are violated by the employers.

The Qatari ambassador has already given a positive gesture of increasing job opportunities for Pakistanis in Qatar.

The establishment of a visa center will ensure the elimination of exploitative practices and Pakistani workers will have their rights protected.

There are 115,000 Pakistanis in Qatar and new job opportunities will increase this number.
