Now you can apply for family visit visa online through MoI’s website and Metrash2.

Great news for all the Indians and Expats living in Qatar. As a part of e-services initiatives, MoI has launched an online family visit visa application through MoI’s website and also through Metrash2.

This came within the framework to develop services to the public. Brigadier Mohammed Ahmed Al Ateeq, Director General of the Department of Passport and Expatriates Affairs at MoI, said the new service has been added to the various e-services already provided by MoI by the use of modern technology in providing a high quality of services to residents and their families – Reported thepeninsulaqatar.com

He added that this service is easy and in case of some missing documents or any other issue, the applicant will get the required alert. Al Ateeq said that this e-service is for the purpose of providing family visit visa to expatriates in the country. He pointed out that the Department has evaluated this electronic service over two months and proved a great success by 100% – Reported thepeninsulaqatar.com

In 2017 June, The Ministry of Interior (MoI), Qatar Airways and Qatar Tourism Authority, have launched an e-visa platform through which visitors to Qatar can directly apply for tourist visas

    i have applied for my Wife and Daughter’s Family Visit Visa. My Wife’s Visa has been approved, but Daughter’s Visa is cancelled. Also, while uploading details via Metrash2, it didn’t request for Birth Certificate of my Daughter, could you please advise?

    • admin

      Dear Ahamad, Is your daughter visa is rejected or in pending. In whatever case, please visit any of the visa centers in Qatar and apply for visa directly. Without a birth certificate, they will not approve a Child visa. Also passport should match the name of Father and Mother as in Childbirth certificate – QatarIndians.com

  • Gladys

    Hi admin.. I applied family visit visa for my mother and brother last December 01, 2019. Now it has been 7 working days but still the status is under process. How long it will take to get it approved. Please advise.

    • admin

      Dear Glady, Usually it takes 3 working days to get the visa approved. As it is 7 days, good to visit any of the visa center in Qatar and find out the reason. If it is because of any missing documents you can complete the requirements and get it approved. – QatarIndians.com Team

        Hi Gladys,

        I would like to know if your visit visa application for your brother was already approved. I applied also last Dec. 19, 2019 then my application was cancelled. After that I resubmit my application last Jan. 7, 2020. Until now I am still waiting for approval.

        Dear Admin,
        Do I need to go now to Immigration to follow-up? Can I go to any branch?

        Thank you.

  • Ram Chandra

    Dear Admin,

    My wife is here on a family visit visa for the last 4 months. Now I want to change it to residency visa. All documents are ready but have small doubt as my ID proffession is Supervisor and the same thing in contract. I am working as a senior admin and all other requirements are full filled but i don’t have a university degree just high school completed certificate attested with MOFA Qatar. Am I eligible to transfer the visa to resedency? Please suggest.

    • admin

      Hi,

      Designation and Degree are part of the criteria to get a family residence. So as per that looks like you did not meet the requirements. However, you can apply and take a chance. Anything can happen. All the best.

    • admin

      Dear Suresh,

      Babies up to 3 months do not need a visa. If your child is above 3 months you can bring on the on-arrival visa. Yes, wife and mother can come on an on arrival visa with one card. All the best – QatarIndians.com team

    Hi. I tried applying Visit Visa for my parents through Metrash 2 App… But it asks for the birth certificate which my parents dont have. What other document can be uploaded under the birth certificate section?

    • admin

      Hello. Thank you for visiting QatarIndians.com – For parents visa usually passport alone will do. Your passport carrying their name is a proof of relationship and date of birth on their passport is proof of their age. So try to upload passport copy itself as birth proof for them. All the best.

  • Sudhanshu Gupta

    Hi, I planning to bring my wife and Daughter. I’ve a doubt related to the attestation process.
    Could you please guide the attestation process for Marriage certificate (wife) & Birth Certificate (Daughter).

    Is the attestation is mandatory for visit visa, do i have to it in India or can be done here as well?

    • admin

      Dear Mr. Sudhanshu, We got to know that for family visit visas also you have to attest the certificates. What you can do is if you have time to take visa, then try applying for visit visa without attestation provided your name is there in Spouse name of your wife passport and your name in your child passport. If it doesn’t work, then attest the certificates and apply.

      Attestations will help in their future visits as well. It is a tedious process to do it on your own. Instead, you can approach an agency in Doha and they can do it almost at the same cost as you spend if you do on your own. Agencies get it done properly and also get it at the earliest. Usually they do it less than 10 working days. Below are some of the trusted agencies who do attestation services in Qatar. They collect your originals and return it with attestation.

      Dear Mr. Arunpandi,

      Better to visit the nearest immigration office and submit the documents. You do not need a birth certificate for your parent’s visa. Wish you the best. – QatarIndians.com team

      • Junaid Ahmed Siddiqui

        The same with me. I tried for my Father and the first document it asks is birth certificate, and unless I upload it it wont move ahead. I went to Madina Khalifa immigration office and the captain says you provide whatever is asked. 🙁 I am not even sure this birth certificate should be mine or my father’s. Frankly, in my father’s days they never issued a birth certificate.

    Will it be a problem to apply for visit visa for my mother,if my mother initial is different in birth certificate and passport.

    • admin

      Dear Mr. Binosh,

      To apply visa for your mother, her passport alone is enough and if her name in her passport matches with your passport we do not see any issue. Does this clarifies your query – QatarIndians.com team

      • Binosh P Yohannan

        Thank you for your reply.
        First name is same in both mine and her passport.But her surname is different in both passport.Surname in her passport and my birth certificate matches.In my passport her surname is my father’s name.Rest every where surname is her father’s name.Any how I have to submit birth certificate to prove relationship know? while cross checking mine/her passport and birth certificate surname will not match right? so ‘m asking is there any chance to reject Visa for my mother.

        • admin

          Hi. In your passport, you have your father name. In her passport, she could have her spouse name. Does that name match exactly?

          I Don’t think it will be an issue for rejection as you are going to attach birth certificate also.

          Wish you all the luck – QatarIndians.com team
