No Nepali worker is to be hired by individual employers in Qatar without the permission of the Nepalese embassy in Doha.

Under new rules, an individual employer will have to submit to the Nepali embassy a copy of the worker’s passport, a copy of the visa, an employment contract verified by the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a valid Qatari ID of the individual concerned with a processing fee of QR60 ($16.5).

The documents collected by the embassy will then be sent to the Ministry of Labour and Transport Management (MoLTM) in Nepal.

The foreign employment permission will be granted only after the documents are properly verified.

The embassy hopes that the new rules will prevent illegal processes used for recruitment of Nepali workers in Qatar.

“The embassy has taken the initiative after we received complaints of a large number of cases of Nepali workers being left in the lurch by their employers,” said Surya Nath Mishra, Nepal’s ambassador to Qatar.

“More than 50 per cent of Nepali workers have been arriving in Qatar through individual process for the last few months. Out of the 56,123 workers who entered Qatar between July 2010 and February 2011, 31,725 arrived through individual processes.”
