Visa Stamping Requirements for Qatar Embassy Philippines

Recently I published about all about the requirements for Qatar working visa, tourist visa, family visa and business visa. Somebody asked about the requirements for the visa stamping at Qatar Embassy for direct hiring employment so here I am posting this page. The documents are listed below. Apparently, the requirements are also applied to employment via agency too as long as you’re an OFW.

A large population of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) work in Doha, Qatar, the country’s capital. Some OFWs work to other areas and cities like Al Wakrah among others. Jobs in Qatar for Filipinos are mainly in the infrastructure area and construction field. DOLE has provided a POLO office in Qatar to cater and assist OFW and manpower services.

Although there are many Filipinos who use local agencies in the Philippines to get employment in Qatar, thousands of OFW wannabes also use the direct hiring route especially those who have friends and relatives working there already.

There are those interested employers in Qatar who would usually invite and provide business visa to their prospective Filipino employees and get to know them better and just hire them once they get there. There are those who hire and interview via telephone or internet video-call means like Skype, MSN or Yahoo Messenger.

The usual steps in hiring OFWs in Qatar via direct hire:

Once they liked the candidate, they process their employment permit, working visa and contract in Doha Qatar and send them to the Filipino worker in the Philippines. The visa must be certified and stamp with sticker in the Qatari Embassy in Manila before the OFW must register to POEA.

The OFW then must process his or her papers at the POEA to register as official OFW and secure an exit clearance in order to leave the Philippines.

your Qatar visa must be certified by the Qatar Embassy in Manila before you leave the airport or the Philippines

Without further discussion, here are the required documents for the processing of Qatar visa stamping.

Qatar Visa Stamping and Issuance of Stickers Requirements for OFW

These are for working visas only, some visa may require different documents. Please prepare original and photocopies (in A4 size only) of the following and make sure all documents are valid and not expired.

  • Application form
  • Visa Notice
  • Passport
  • Medical Certificate (fit to travel) issued only by an accredited clinic by the Qatar Embassy
  • NBI Clearance Authenticated by the DFA
  • 2 2×2 colored photos with white background
  • P358 payment done in Credit card or Debit card (Visa or Mastercard)

Submit these requirements at the Qatar Embassy in Manila with address below. You need to submit them personally. Should you need a representative to process them for you, you can send an authorization letter of your representative and copies of your valid IDs and his valid IDs.

Online application of Qatar Visa stamping is not yet served and available at current time because the State of Qatar Embassy in Manila has no official website yet. For sure they are doing this soon.

  1. Hello po. Ask ko lang po since first time ko rin mag work abroad. Bakit po ang nakalagay sa visa na stamp sa passport ko duration of stay? Tapos yung sa working visa naman na pinadala ng sponsor duration of residence? Alm ko po mag kaiba yun, ang tanong ko lang bakit yung sa visa sa passport which is yung duration of stay nga, ang nakalagay 3 months? Di ba po yun ang tinitignan sa airport? Pano pag nag exceed kana sa 3 months stay mo dun, eh syempre nag wowork ka dun. Pano po yun?

    • same case po sa brother ko rin. Meron na sya work permit kaso ayaw i-authenticate ang job offer nya dito sa POLO owwa qatar dahil wla na daw direct hiring. Need kasi maisend sa brod ko sa pinas ang authenticated and original job offer bago tanggapin para sa stamping sa passport nya thru Worldwide express… Ang haba ng proseso. Mawawala ang work dahil sa ganitong sistema. Kakalungkot talaga 🙁

      Reply
      • Malabo na po maiprocess mga work visa na ganyan. Yung sa brod ko eh, pinacancel ko nalang kc kahit ano gawin ko pakiusap sa POLO-OWWA wala daw tlga sila magagawa. Need tlga dumaan sa agency. Yung employer mo kailangan pumunta sa Labor dito sa qatar to request for job order. It will take time also. Then saka mo pa lang maibibigay sa agency para maiprocess ka nila. One month equivalent salary ang dapat bayaran sa agency para maiprocess lng documents mo.

        Kung ipacancel mo naman work visa habang nasa pinas at hindi na gagamitin, need ng employer mo pumunta sa immigration at ipakita ang ticket mo at letter justifying the cancellation of the visa. Then saka palang maicancel. Ung nagastos mo sa ticket eh, pwede mo mairefund pero medyo matagal.

    I was given business/work type VISA. They told me to liaise with a local contractor here in Manila who will then process my exit visa.
    I’d like to know where can I validate the VISA# they have given me to ensure that it is legit.

      Kailangan ko po tulong nyo, I was at the Qatarri Embassy yesterday to have my visa stamped but unfortunately they’re closed because of the holiday and will not resume until monday. Tapos may nakasabay po ako with the same work visa as mine, sabi po nya hindi ko na kailangan ng authenticated nbi and medical. This info made me happy knowing that I won’t have to exert extra effort to secure these stuff. Pero bago po ako bumalik ng monday dun, gusto ko lang pong i clarify kung talagang hindi na kailangan ng medical and authenticated nbi for work visa holders? I would really appreciate your kind heart. Please help…

    • Sir, the author doesn’t say 2 2×2 passport size, he/she just simply said 2 2×2 pictures with white background. You can read it again so as not to confuse you. He/she also said that the following requirements he/she shared is to those people with WORKING VISA only. Because the requirements might differ with other types of visa. But thanks for sharing the requirements for VISIT VISA.

  34. Hi Ms Fehl Dungo, Good day. I have read this page and it really helped me a lot. Anyway, I have few more queries that I thought you might answer. I’m schedule to pick up my passport at Qatar Embassy tomorrow, so as direct hire, next in line would be the process under POEA. would you know if I will need separate medical procedure as their requirements? or logically this will be waived due to the medical screening I have undergone at Qatar embassy as pre-requisite requirements for visa stamping?

    Honestly, I’m still reading blogs of POEA processing specifically as direct hire from Qatar. Would you be able to give advices in this case? I really admire you for helping OFW aspirants by your BLOG. kudos to you!

    Best Regards,
    Bong

  50. share lng ako ng experience,

    1. papunta sa paseo de magallanes, google map nyo lng at hanapin nyo kung saan kayo pwede bumaba syempre tanong sa driver ng bus o jeepney kung dadaanan ba sila along the way sa paseo de magallanes at ako nag pahinto ako sa evangelista makikita mo doon jolibee at mc do ang katapat na street nya, makikita mo na overpass umakyat ka kasi sa kabilang daan ang paseo de magallanes may mga sign board board naman doon dika maligaw village siya kaya tanong k lng sa guard pag nakita mo na barangay hall malapit kna yun na ayos na yun

    2 una mong gawin magpalista ka makita mo naman yung kung saan may na grupogrupo hanapin mo lng kung sino ang naglilista. kagaya ko dumating ako 6:50 am pang 41 nko, ang unang batch lng na papasukin muna 50 maximum nya, mabilis naman pero dapat nyo tandaan 9-10am ang process nila cguro masuwerte na ang pagbibigyan na lalampas ng 10:30 ay paano kung 100 plus ang nagpuntang tao alanganin ka na, kasi ng andon nko sa mismong window kung saan magbayad at kunin ang document, 9:44am na, kaya dapat maaga talaga. hindi sila tumatangap ng cash, debit credit card o atm dapat may logo ng visa o mastercard sa card mo

    3, ang inayus ko doon visit visa at ang kinuha nila print notice visa, original passport, at dalawang 2×2 pictuew/white background ang iniwan ko doon 3 working days friday ko pinasa babalik ako martes, 2-3pm ang claiming bring valid id,

    4 so good luck marami naman nagshare na sa blog and make sure na dala nyong lahat madali lng basta kompleto kayo …

  54. Hi,

    I work for an american company and I’ll be based in Jubail, KSA. Until now, my visa for saudi is still being processed. Dahil may project kami dito sa Kuwait at kailangan na ako, kinuha muna nila ako ng visit visa for 30days kaya dumating ako dito Nov21. Return flight (Kuwait-Doha-Mla) ko dapat sa Sabado na, Dec20.

    Ngayon, may project naman kami sa Qatar at kinuha na nila ako ng Work-Business Visa valid for 3months, na sinend saken kagabi.

    Ang tanong ko po, di na ba kailangan yong visa stamping? Kailangan ko lang po ba i-present yong print-out ng work-visa ko pagdating sa Doha? Di ko na po ba kailangan bumalik muna sa Pinas?
    Gusto ko lang po makasiguro na walang magiging problema pagpunta ko sa Qatar.

    Hope someone can respond asap. Thanks!

  63. Actually ang pila sa embassy is at the back of the embassy, make ship of a garage! Para sa Work Visa… DO NOT FORGET to photocopy the green NBI clearance in A4 size paper (2-copies), kung hindi pupunta pa kayo sa may Evangelista St (tawid EDSA) para magpa-photocopy. Iyong Individual applicants na pumunta ng maaga at nagpalista, huwag kayong aalis sa may gate, dahil kapag nagpapasok na ang guard at wala kayo doon, pababalikin na kayo sa pila. Hindi natangap ng cash. Only credit & debit cards only, at pwede lang gumamit ng card from family first-kin, (siyempre dapat kasama mo may-ari ng card), iyan ang nakapost doon sa may Cashier.

    The building is facing the South SuperHighway. Sabi nga ng isang nag comment sa itaas, hindi siya mukhang embassy, glass walled with ‘white’ grills ang harapan niya. Wala siyang marker as embassy.
    Katabi lang siya at nasa left side siya ng East-WestBank at Bank of Commerce para madali ninyong makita. Oh ayan, may palatandaan na kayo dahil ako nakadalawang ikot ako sa kahahanap diyan.

  94. Hi Ms. Fehl here is the reply from poea to my inquiry about Direct Hire.

    This refers to your email regarding your inquiry about Direct Hiring (Name Hiring).

    You are requested to submit the following documentary requirements:

    1. EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT DULY SIGNED BY THE EMPLOYER AND VERIFIED BY PHILIPPINE OVERSEAS LABOR OFFICE (POLO) IN QATAR.
    2. VALID WORKING VISA OR WORK PERMIT
    3. VALID PASSPORT
    4. 2X2 PICTURE FOR MEDICAL REFERRAL
    5. PRE-DEPARTURE ORIENTATION SEMINAR (PDOS) CERTIFICATE
    6. MEDICAL CERTIFICATE FROM DOH-ACCREDITED OFW MEDICAL CLINICS/HOSPITALS

    If you already have the no. 1 & 2 documents, you can proceed to the Name Hire Unit located at the POEA Blas F Ople Building, 2nd Floor, EDSA corner Ortigas Avenue, Mandaluyong City for the evaluation of your papers.

    How it goes Ms. Fehl where should I go first in POEA or Qatar Embassy for stamping of visa?

    siya sa employer.
    Pumayag naman po yung employer.

    Kaso po yun process na gagawin, sa pag-exit po nung kaibigan ko dito sa Pilipinas
    hindi po siya ni require na kumuha ng exit permit…ang instruction is ipapa-book
    siya ng flight patungong HONGKONG tapos lilipat po siya ng plane papuntang QATAR.

    ang requirements lang po na hiningi sa kanya ay medical certificate….after daw po na ma issue an siya ng fit to work..ipapadala yung visa niya at contract sa e-mail niya…is it possible?…sabi po kasi ninyo sa post ninyo, legal OFW should secure exit permit to POEA bago sila payagang umalis ng bansa papuntang Qatar..

    Worried po ako sa gagawin ng kaibigan ko. please enlighten me kung okay lang naman po pala yung ganung process.]

    • I’m not sure if Qatar still accepts direct hiring or they already require agencies like what Dubai now requires. What I can suggest to you is, prepare your employment contract and documents and apply for a working visa in Qatar embassy. If you had the visa, apply directly to POEA for your permits, PDOS and exit clearance. If direct hire is not required anymore, they will then advise you for a local agency.

  107. Hi Ma’am,

    Inquiring about the procedure for red ribbon document stamping by the Qatar Embassy in Manila.
    I am currently working here in UAE (under unlimited contract) and recently received a job offer from Qatar.
    I sent back my red ribbon certificate to my family but I doubt if the Qatar Embassy will accept the same red ribbon I used for my employer here in UAE since October 2012 which is apparently more than one year now.

    We learned from DHL that they are not providing stamping service for Qatar Embassy. Should my representative come personally to Qatar Embassy in Manila for this purpose? What are the required document and inclusive fees.

  127. hi po, good day! ask ko lang po sana regarding sa employment ko. i was intervied by an employer in qatar last dec 16, luckily i passed. dec 17 they sent the agency my offer which i immediately signed it back to them. i was then advised to take my med exam last dec 26. Then on Jan 3 i got my cert which i am fit to work. on Jan 13, my employer said they will process my visa within 2 weeks time. On Jan 22 they informed me that my visa is issued but have to change the company name so they will send again the revised offer to proceed with the documentation process of my travel. is this possible? A Visa is issued but have to change comp name? then when i f-up, employer said it is still in process by the polo ofc in qatar, that was last jan 27. how long would it take for the stamping in polo? I am just worried because i already decline other employer for possible deployment. is it possible that employer may change their mind in hiring me after i’ve been tru medical and already submitted my passport and nbi to the agency?

    • If they never asked you fees or big money then perhaps it’s legit and you can wait a while. 🙂 Just pray and always make a follow up about your visa.

      i was diagnosed with PTB 10 years ago but was treated and since then has been
      inactive, however left a scar on my lungs but i have previous xray films with medical
      cert from my physician to prove the disease did not re occur. do u have any idea how

      • Welcome Ivy, actually I have no idea regarding the medical procedure in the Phils. and I think it is easier to pass there if you have the medical certificate.
        At madali sa atin gumawa ng paraan para mai-ayos ang mga document. Unlike Qatar, that you will have to pass on their requirement but once you comply with them or found you fit with no existing disease then quickly they will approve your papers. good luck

    • You have to present a lot of documents in the immigration in order not to be offloaded. You also need to bring your company id and approved leave application. The immigration allows only sponsorship up to first degree cousins. Thus if your sponsor is only your friend, i guess u will not be allowed to go.

  157. hi Fehl,

    I just wanted to query about Qatar working visa, the visa was issued here in Qatar and the contract employment has been already signed and stamped by POLO and Philippine Embassy of Qatar before sending to the Philippines.

    Now, my concerned is the processing procedure of the visa stamping at the Qatar Philippine Embassy in Manila, how we could get the stamped visa on the passport from the Qatar Philippine Embassy in Manila, do we need to tap an agency in Manila to liaise with the stamping and to process the same in the POEA for the exit clearance? Or possibly we can go directly to the Qatar Philippine Embassy to personally process the papers along with other requirements to be presented as required.

    Kindly advise for the right procedure to be followed so at least our money and time will not be wasted.

    Thank you so much… and awaiting for your swift reply.

    More Power and may God bless you!

      1) NOC (No objection certificate) from husband’s company with salary > at least 5000 QAR up
      2) marriage certificate copy
      3) ID copy of yours (RP) – sponsor
      4) passport copy of the wife
      5) accommodation contract (if it is with u, otherwise try without)
      Fill up a form there.
      +
      bank card (200 QAR)
      +
      Carry all other things with you (optional only, but better if you take it. eg:- degree certificate copy, passport copy etc)
      They will issue 1 month visa, after you can renew 5 more months. For renewal you have to take your wife for medical.

      Good luck!

      Regarding attestation from Qatar embassy in the Phils. You can authorized somebody in Manila. Just contact the Qatar embassy for the requirements e.g. authorization letter, orig. passport , photos,etc., then you will send it to your authorized representative. Everything will be processed by the Qatar embassy. That is the process we made with my family who are in Davao and they are here with me now in Qatar. Good luck.

    • You need to go to POEA to register yourself as an OFW. Everything you need to go through like OWWA, Philhealth, SSS, Pagibig, and POEA permits are there. You also need to attend PDOS (Pre Departure Orientation Seminar). POEA will issue your e-clearance once you did everything. That clearance is needed when you leave the Philippines. You need to show that too at the airport when you depart from the country

      • Mam, another question po. Kung sakali na di ko magamit ang working visa na binigay ng isang company sa Qatar, and another Qatar company hires me, kelangan ko ba kumuha ng NOC dun sa naunang nag issue ng working visa kahit hindi naman ako natuloy dun

    • Yes you can enter Qatar as long as you have a visa. You have a problem if you don’t have one hehe Present the visa to the country you are going. If you’re going to Qatar from the Philippines, show the IO your Qatar business visa. Answer them honestly about their question. Don’t worry too much because you are a decent professional with genuine papers so you really have nothing to worry 🙂

  181. Hi po. Itatanong ko lng po sa inyo if I will cancel my current visa here in Qatar and my sponsor will give me NOC, can I go to other country like Dubai instead of going to the Philippines after visa cancellation, wait for my new working visa from my new sponsor and come back in Qatar directly from Dubai? Kasi po kung uuwi pa ako sa Pinas processing may take time at need ko pa po magbayad sa agency to process my papers and also I need to come back to Qatar within 2-3 weeks. Hindi po ba ako ma question sa immigration if my visa is not stamp? Maraming salamat po.

    Reply
    • I think yes you can go to Dubai as long as you have permit or visa to stay in Dubai. I’m just not sure if you can wait for your visa from Qatar while in Dubai and have it stamped there instead because you are a tourist in Dubai not a PR

      Reply
      • Salamat po..Sana po I can enter Qatar kahit hindi naka stamp ang visa ko sa passport and I only have printed visa. Nabasa ko po sa ilang comments above na nakapasok sila sa Qatar having only printed visa. Maybe I can try this – just go to Dubai after visa cancellation instead of going home to Philippines and start the process from zero. Salamat.

  189. Dear Ms. Fehl,

    I am an OFW currently working in KSA. I was offered a job in Qatar and my employment visa is under process. Question: Do I need to get back to the Philippines in order to get a stamped visa by the Qatar Embassy or could I instead fly directly from KSA to Qatar? Will the Qatar immigration accept employment e-visa for my entry?

    I need your immediate advice.

    Jon

    • If you are coming from Saudi, you can go directly to Qatar, just show your e-visa to the airline counter and you can enter qatar immigration without question. I did it last October.

      Reply
    • Your employer can provide you with Qatar Business Visa and a one-way ticket and you can go directly to Qatar from KSA. No need to go back to the Philippines. I have done that when I had finished my contract in Dubai and transferred to Qatar. Philippine Immigration will just give you a hard time going out if you will be coming from the Philippines. It’s already a culture in our airport that nobody is doing something.

    • I hope it would be processed faster. Just be patient and if nobody from the embassy is contacting you, that means either your application has no problem or they are still assessing it. Be patient 🙂 Good luck and God bless 🙂

  193. Hey Fehl! I salute your kindness of helping others! I truly respect you for that!

    These kind of discussions and queries might be helpful for everyone especially to our KABAYAN’s . I’m also 1 of them, collecting info’s in regards to the methods and procedures of the Department of Naturalization and Residency of Qatar Government, especially for the OFW currently living in the UAE and hoping to Obtain a Tourist Visa in Qatar.

    These are my queries for TOURIST VISA:

    1. For Filipino’s who are having a newly renewed Phil Passport where the Resident Visa is stamped in the old passport while the new (empty) passport is stapled/attached to the old one, Should this be enough to do the visa application or Does the new passport still need to get stamped? By Who? Should it either be this authorities (Qatar/Philippine)?

    2. Can we possibly apply for a visa online and/or Agency?

    3. How much does it cost and how long is the max duration?

    I understand if you may not able to reply ASAP as i’ve noticed the massive enquiries ahead of me. However, i really would appreciate should you find time and give us the info at any of your most convenient time.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards,

    A Proud Visayan

    Greetings!
    I have no agency here in the philippines my employer asked me to send my documents in Qatar to process my paper works in Doha, Qatar for visa applications. it was so disappointing because of rejection by the Qatar embassy. my question, is it possible to do the attestation stamp here in the Qatar embassy (Philippines) prior for visa application in Doha?and how long is this process?

    Thank you and God Bless

  195. I just would like to ask if I must allow an agency to have my passport stamped with a work visa in Qatar as a “cashier” when there’s an internal contract that indicates that I’ll be working there as an assistant pharmacist. And if in the internal contract they stated that it’s an open contract (not 2yrs), does it mean that I can leave the company after my probationary period and look for another job there? Is it allowed? And can my working visa title be changed into “pharmacist” once I pass the Prometric exam?

  197. Hi, Thanks for the info,
    about the personal processing of visa stamping, we are under an agency applying for working visa. if without our presence, will they(our agency) need our authorization letter to process the stamping of the visa or are they exempted for such since they are an agency?
    I’m asking this question also because we’ve been “shown” a visa and was told to fly by 1st week of february 2013. THe visa has no stamp on it so, i’m in a wonder right now…

  200. I signed with an employer in Doha last June 2012. Ived given my passport to my agency back in October but until this day they say that my visa still hasn’t come out. Its more than 3 months already, does it really take this long or should I be worried and report this to POEA?..thanks!

    Reply
    • 3 months is short compared to some who get theirs after 6 months hehe Be patient and don’t hesitate to make a follow up to your agency about it because you have the right to know. Know the reasons why it’s taking too long then if it’s not reasonable enough, request decently to withdraw your application if you have decided that way. God bless!
