On Friday 29th of March, Qatar launched its second Qatar Visa Centre (QVC) in Mumbai, India, in the presence of officials from both countries.

The center in Mumbai is the second one in India after New Delhi, which was opened a few days back, reported thepeninsulaqatar.com

Qatar Visa Centre (QVC) will enable Indians who are moving to Qatar on employment to complete fingerprint, biometric data processing and also employment contract signing in India itself through. Also, work visa procedures will speed up as expats complete procedures before they leave.

Earlier, Qatar Visa Centre’s were opened in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and also in Pakistan. There is no change in terms of recruitment procedures, expect that home countries now facilitate the procedures which simplies the process and also reduce the time. The Ministry of Interior website and Metrash 2 service provides all the necessary steps to apply for recruitment through the QVCs. All the fees necessary for the recruitment are to be paid by employers in Qatar and allow the expatriate to complete the procedures in QVC’s.
