Qatar Tribune, 13 November 2023: Qatar’s Labour Ministry has announced it has updated the e-services offered by labour employment offices.
The updates include an ability to renew or cancel a labour recruitment office licence electronically by following the instructions on the Ministry’s website.
Employers and owners of labour recruitment offices must apply for the renewal of their licences electronically at least a month before they expire through the Ministry’s website.
To be eligible for renewal, the company must have an active ID card and valid commercial registration. They must also have no bans on them or personal bans on their new owner, no active renewal requests and no complaints against the office.
Where a request to cancel a labour recruitment office licence is requested, the application is accepted if there are no bans on the establishment, no personal bans on the current owner, no complaints against the office and nine months have passed since the announcement of the office’s closure in an official newspaper.
They have updated the e-services as part of their digital transformation strategy. The strategy is aimed at improving performance, expediting transactions and simplifying procedures.
