Hiring Manpower from Pakistan for Qatar Requirements

Qatar Flying Flag

The State of Qatar is an independent Islamic country in the Middle East. Only 15% of Qataris account for Qatar’s total population. The rest are expatriates. As such Qatar is one of the most favourable countries for expatriates. The ruling emir has noted that:

In Qatar, they find security and a dignified livelihood.

Qatar New Labor Law

Qatar enacted a new labor law in 2015 to greatly simplify the hiring process. The new labour law replaced the kafala system with contract based system. The new regulations are aimed at making it easier for migrant workers to change jobs and leave the country.It is a step forward towards improving and protecting the rights of every expatriate worker in Qatar. Back then Kafala system required foreign workers to obtain their employers consent to travel abroad or switch jobs, a measure that according to Rights Groups leaved workers prone to exploitation and forced labour.

Here is a document which details the new Qatari Labor along with the benefits to the Pakistani workers: New Qatari Labor Law.
