hi mga sisses! meron akong 3 year old son na delayed ang speech at social skills. we were advised na meron siyang autistic behavoir at nagte-therapy sya sa rumaillah for his behavior and speech. we were told na subukan siyang mag-school para ma-expose sa ibang bata pero we feel na hindi pa siya ready sa regular school kaya hinahanapan namin siya sa nursery or play school. baka may ma-suggest naman kayo near muntazah area, super thank you in advance :)

Hi girltalkers.. I need help.. I have a final interview tomorrow as sales executive sa regency travel and tours.. Anyone here who knows how much is really the salary offer? And how is the job?..
Thanks so much sa magrereply
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: ms_ldr on August 20, 2012, 01:09:07 am
^i think 3k qatari riyals and above basic pay is ok. accomodation and transpo provided.
if accomodation is not provided you should have allowance of 1k at least to be able to rent a good room/sharing and transpo of at least 500qr.
hinde ko alam kung may commission pa dyan since the job is sales executive (?)
i cant say about the job pero i think it should be easier kasi well establish naman ang regency travel and tours kilala na sya dito sa qatar although maraming competition pa rin.

please note 1 qatari riyals = 11. something php

God bless sa interview mo  ;)

hello po..id like to check with you san pede kumuha ng driving lessons and how much po? thank you

I enrolled in Karwa Driving School way back 2009. The fee depends if you are enrolling on a full course, half course, etc.

If you already have a professional driving license for instance from ‘Pinas then you may have a 7 day course áta & pay a minimal amount.

Full course runs for 30 days (1 hour per day) Saturday  to Thursday, QAR 3K+++. If you believed and have enough courage to schedule a driving test kahit hindi pa tapos ang course mo, pwede rin. In case naman na bumagsak ka pwede mo namang ituloy ang natitira pang days on your course.

‘Pag lady pala ang mag da drive you have the option to choose if manual or automatic ang ida-drive mo. Whatever  you choose iyon din ang gagamitin mo during your exam.

Hope this help.

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: marssie on September 12, 2012, 01:11:43 pm
^Pwede ka pa rin naman magvisit visa thru agency. Like the usual thing pag magtatravel ka, kung wala kang relatives or friends, book hotel, show your ticket and justify your travel. Kasi sa atin pa naman, basta ang destination mo Qatar, Dubai, etc.. kadalasan alam ng immigration na you will look for a job kaya ang higpit nila.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: ms_ldr on September 12, 2012, 02:30:44 pm

Hindi pwede kapag friend lang. You can bring your friend here though either through business visa or tourist visa.

And not all relatives belong to the category "visit visa". For example pinsan ng pinsan mo 'pag hindi mo maipakita iyong proof ng pagiging relative mo sa papupuntahin mo medyo mahihirapan ka rin. And now meron ng salary bracket it should be QAR10K & up para makapag visit visa...

^ Hi sis, im good, bakit ikaw may schedule na? ako wala naman sinabi na dun ako magpacheck up, i went to abu bakher clinic near doha zoo, unfortunately, hindi na tumatangap ang muntaza health center ng new and transfer applications not unless from westbay daw ang health card. so dun nalang ulit ako nagrenew. 

last week,nagpablood grouping,urine and sugar test na ako at may schedule ako sa OB sa abu bhaker next week. Dun palang ba ako bibigyan ng appointment sa Hamad? Kasi yun ang tinanong ko kung after ba ng test sa hamad na ako tutuloy sabi kasi sa akin sa kanila pa rin daw at irerefer lang daw nila ako pag malapit na ako manganak. :-\

^hi madiday, pwede ka i-tourist/business visa ni bf mo from travel agencies. pero di ka pwedeng tumira kasama nya.

^^marssie, nung buntis ako galing ako health center lang nun ni refer ako sa (hamad) womens nung 9 mos na ko. naka 2 check up ako sa kanila. every week na kasi. nakakatawa nga kasi yung next appointment binigay sakin lagpas na sa due date ko sa hirap kumuha ng appointment.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: marssie on September 25, 2012, 08:54:49 pm
^Thanks sis. Oo nga raw tinanong ko sa OB pag malapit na raw manganak,yung last check up tsaka bibigyan ng referral sa Hamad.  Pashare naman birthing experience mo sa Hamad sis :)

2nd option ko kasi ang hamad, pero pinagpipray ko pa rin na maging smooth ang pagbubuntis ko at ang situation sa company namin para sa Al Ahli ako manganak.  Medyo natakot kasi ako sa hamad, sabi ng OB pipilitin daw muna akong magnormal, depende daw sa doctor pero kadalasan nga pinapanormal, CS kasi ako sa 1st child ko dahil maliit sipit-sipitan ko kaya parang ayaw ko magtake ng risk na magtry ng normal then later on CS din pala. Naloka pa ako sa kwento nung kasabay kong pinay sa clinic, sabi niya yung kakilala daw niya sinubukang inormal sa hamad,tapos bigla emergency CS,nung hinihiwa na tummy niya halos ramdam daw dahil di pa masyadong nag-effect yung anesthesia.. ngilong-ngilo tuloy ako..

^^pwede naman sis wag lang kayo papahuli sa baladiya ;D

Hello mga sis :)

I gave birth in Hamad, almost 2 years ago. I have no major complaints. You just have to accept na di same doctor yung titingin syo kasi madami talagang nanganganak :) Though pag labor na talaga you have your own room naman with a mid-wife and regular na nagrounds ang doctors. True na normal talaga gusto nila. That time I was given the option pa if gusto ko magepidural. They didnt force me and gave me time to think. But I had fever due to the stress I guess so di na ako pwede bigyan. Though after an hour of being 9cm and pushing... sabi nung doctor if in 10 mins di daw ako manganak i-CS na ako... so in my head sabi ko.. WHAT! I've been in pain for several hours tapos ngayon i-CS nyo pa ako?! So I literally gave it my all to deliver na. Malaki din kasi si baby he was 8.2lbs and I'm quite small 5'2" lang. But the mid-wife and nurse really helped me. They also cleaned the "inside" or what's left of it after delivery, very well kasi I didnt bleed abnormally after.

You can't expect much special treat of course. But for sure safe naman. The things they have are all clean and new, normally disposable lang. They bring you to a recovery room for 2 hours, make sure you pee. Then you go to the room. Regular naman yung check-up.

In my case, nagkalagnat din si baby so they had to bring him sa NICU. I go and visit him. They helped me for breastfeeding. After when we went home, pinauwi pa lahat ng bottled milk, diapers for baby.

Plus 100QAR lang per day.

Only downside.. di pwede kasama si hubby :)

^^thanks sis  kyuting13 for sharing your experience with Hamad, at least may nalalaman pa rin akong magandang story,kasi usually sa mga nakausap ko nga at ewan bat sa akin pa natapat,nahihindik ako sa mga kwenento nila. Yung kasama ko sa work nanganak din sa Hamad ang wife last year,tataka lang ako kasi from private doctor,one time lang nagpacheck up sa Hamad (women's mismo) then nung manganganak na deretso na rin siya sa Women's. Sabi ko nga ako sa clinic muna at irerefer nalang sa Hamad pag manganganak na, di daw niya alam bakit sa case ng wife niya wala ng ganon.

Anyway, have you heard about Qatari na pumasok sa UK para magpagamot dahil may Corona virus? Parang nakakatakot tuloy maglalabas ngayon..
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: rianne_00 on September 27, 2012, 09:10:34 pm
Ako two years ago din when I gave birth at Hamad...maganda rin experienced ko, although second baby ko na yun (yung first ko sa Pinas ko pinanganak) kaya medyo alam ko na kung ano mga ieexpect ko except sa enema(labatiba) kasi sa panganay ko sa Pinas hindi naman ako ginanun...pero ok din para nga naman walang sumabay na hindi maganda kay baby ( sorry medyo gross topic :) )...tsaka yun nga as what they've said, usually disposable lahat ng gamit at tsaka mababait naman sila :)..na enjoy ko naman experienced ko sa Hamad compared sa Pinas na naturingang sa private pa ko at mahal ng hospital bills.

***Speaking of panganganak na rin mga sisses...baka may mairerefer kayong pinoy na psychologist/psychiatrist dito sa Doha and their rates...feeling ko kasi upto now may post partum depression/syndrome pa rin ako :(...I really need someone to talk to.

***Nakakatakot nga yung SARS like virus mga sisses...huwag na sanang kumalat...mukang magkukulong na lang kami ng mga babies ko sa house, nakakatakot maglalabas.

^hi sis, nice to hear your story din about hamad :) Nag alala lang kasi talaga ako sa part na sinabi sa akin na pipilitin akong inormal. I even asked her kahit ba sa case na maliit ang sipit-sipitan sagot ng OB depende sa doctor, so lalo tuloy akong kinabahan ::)

Sis baka you just need to unwind or meet with friends  :) SAHM ka ba? kasi ako nung di pa rin nagwowork,napapraning sa bahay, pero katagalan,naenjoy ko na rin naman. Kaya nga hirap ang loob ko nun na magstart sa work ulit dahil naging sobrang attach ako sa son ko.

Post by: ms_ldr on September 30, 2012, 05:58:46 pm
marssie i gave birth last yr sa womens.
ok naman na galing private clinic then sa womens ka manganak, need mo lang makapag open ng file so kahit once ka lang maka chek up dun ok na, pwede ka na manganak dun.

2nd baby ko to dito pinanganak yung panganay ko sa pinas.
mabilis ako manganak, pag punta namin sa womens check up nila ako 6 cm na so admit na ko agad.
yung nga may private room at midwife na magbabantay sayo. meron sya fill up na file, so iinterviewhin ka rin nya. marami ikakabit sayo, para sa heartbeat, sa tyan, may pang blood pressure...maganda facilities, gulat nga ako dun sa mismong bed dun na ko nanganak at may lagayan na rin si baby dun sa room.

ayaw ko talaga ng epidural, takot ako sa injectiong malake :o kaya pinag aralan ko yun. tinanong ko yung midwife kung may iba pang options, meron naman raw. pero may nilagay sya sakin pinadaan sa dextrose, tapusin lang raw yun then anesthecia na. eh sa bilis ko manganak at andyan na si baby ire na ko ng ire hinde na ko nalagyan ng anesthecia. ok lang naman, kaya ko pala. or siguro mataas lang ang tolerance ko sa pain. yun lang tinahi ako ang tagal tagal  :o may konting kurot na sakit lang. nung tinanong nga ako kung ok ako, sabi ko oo nangangalay lang yung paa ko sa tagal ng tahi, nagtawanan mga dr at nurses na andun.

tips ko sa yo kapag nag decide ka sa womens manganganak:
pumunta ka sa hamad pag di mo na ma take yung labor pains mo, kasi di ka nila a-admit hanggang di ka 6cm. orasan mo yung pagsakit ng tyan mo. kapag mga 1 min na ang pagitan ng contraction thats the time.

magdala ka ng cellphone pag-i-admit ka na. papapaltan ka naman ng damit at bibigyan ka ng malaking plastic bag para ilagay mga clothes at slippers mo dun, dun mo na rin ilagay yung fone mo. after mo manganak ibibigay sayo yun. para may way of communication ka sa relatives mo naghihintay sayo sa labas, nangyari sakin nasa room na ko wala pa hubby and mom ko kasi sabi sa kanila after 1 hr pa raw. eh si baby andun na rin sa room ko.

yung una kong midwife ok sya, nung nagpalit ng shift hay naku, namasyal pa sya at iniwan ako nag breaktime pa sya ha. hinde rin ako tinanong kung gusto ko i breastfeed si baby, pina cup feeding na nya agad, nung 2nd time ako pa nagsabi sa kanya na gusto ko i breastfeed.

kung manganganak ako ulet, mas gusto ko sa pinas, maganda kasi experience ko dun sa private hospital samin pero di kasing ganda ng facilities sa hamad pero kung iisipin ko yung gastos at yung abala sa pag gawa ng mga documents ni baby, sige dito na lang.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: marssie on September 30, 2012, 09:05:29 pm
^ Wow sis! bilib naman ako sayo, parang pinakanakakangilong part sa normal delivery yung tinatahi na ;D Buti ka pa, galing mo maghandle ng pain, ako wag lang mapaper cut nagingiwi na ng husto sa sakit, plus yung bad experience ko pa sa IE at catheter nung nanganak ako sa dubai dati >:(

Naka one check up na ako sa clinic, pinababalik ako for sugar test na, ayaw ko na nga balikan kasi haba ng pila sa clinic. Kung pwede pala ganong set up okay lang na punta na ako hamad without referral mga clinic's OB?  Kaso sa case ko, i was CS before,baka dahil walang referral talagang pilitin ako i-normal at i-CS last minute..

Oo nga e,gusto ko rin talaga sa pinas manganak and initially that was the plan naman talaga, kaya nga till now parang gusto ko humabol sa pagbili ng ticket sa katapusan ng october.. kaso nagcocompute din kaso ako ng gastos, since may insurance naman ako pwede pa rin ako sa al-ahli manganak, 2nd option ko lang talaga ang womens just in case na may part ng insurance ko ang di ko magamit like for some complicated cases na pinagdadasal ko sa Diyos na wag naman sanang mangyari.. Eto kasi pumipigil sa akin sa pag uwi-- Money ;D feeling ko kasi di praktikal:

-3way tickets namin (hubby, son ko and ako), shoulder na namin dahil nagamit na namin yung free ticket namin sa company ni hubby last january
-1way ticket ni hubby - pag nanganak ako sa december which is ang mahal ng ticket
-1way ticket ni hubby pag sinundo niya kami sa Feb
-2 months unpaid leave ako..50days kasi yung maternity leave at mga 20days nalang remaining AL ko, so Nov to Feb is equivalent to 4months na nakaleave ako..
-at matitigil sa school ang son ko ng 4months din,kasi ayaw ni hubby maiwan ang bata dito sa kanya dahil mahihirapan daw sila pareho at dagdag gastos din sa ticket pag umuwi si hubby ng Dec at Feb nanaman..
-Hospital Bill pa, although mare-reimburse sa insurance pero baka matapat ako sa hospital na di tumatangap ng guarantee form from international insurance eh papaluwalan ko muna..
-and lastly yung project ngayon kung san ako nakaassign matatapos na ng january hehe..pagbalik ko tapos na ang project, kaya sinasamantala ko muna yung mga months na sasahod pa ako ng buo :)

Sabi naman ni hubby wala daw problema sa gastos as long as kumportable ako,dun ako manganak, pinas man or dito, sabi ko kumportable nga ako sa pinas, kaso pag naiisip ko mga gagastusin,nasstress ako kaya nagdecide ako na dito na nga lang..

Thanks for sharing your experience.. halos lahat ng nagshare dito sa thread na to maganda ang experience sa hamad :)
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: ms_ldr on October 02, 2012, 07:54:40 pm
ang experience ko kasi sa pinas pag labas ni baby ang bilis ng tahi wala pang 3 mins yata tapos na. eh dito di ko alam panong tahi ang gawa nya nainip talaga ako promise.

onga noh ang daming gastusin at abala. yun ang mas nakakangilo  :P ang iniisip ko kasi yung asikaso ng papers sa pinas, yung birth certificate, passport, yung new process pa ng qatar visa ngayon hay naku ang hirap ng byahe at pag aantay. dito after 2 mos pa namin naasikaso passport ni baby, yung visa nya after 3 mos pa.

sis kung pwede ka sa al ahli e di go ka na dun, kung gagastusan ka dun ok lang at least mas less ang gastos at abala siguro kumpara sa pag uwi mo pa sa pinas.

God bless you on your delivery day, wag ka mashado mag alala para mas mabilis lumabas si baby

Post by: smm_0411 on October 05, 2012, 09:20:10 pm
hi mga sis, share ko din ang experience ko sa hamad, hindi sa panganganak kungdi sa check up pa lang... yung first 6months of pregnancy ko sa private doctor ako then nag-open ako ng file sa Health Center sa may Matar Qadeem, nung mag 8 months na ko at saka ako nirefer sa Women's.... unang check-up ko dahil ang hirap kumuha ng appointment ang OB na natapat sa akin ay lalaki, ang sabi nya hindi komo CS sa unang baby ay CS na din sa pangalawa... ita-try daw muna na magnormal ako kaso takot akong mag take ng risk dahil buhay ni baby at buhay ko ang nakasalalay... at saka hindi pwede kasama si hubby while nasa hospital and nobody will take care of me dahil kami lang ni hubby dito that time... what we have decided eh umuwi na lang ng pinas para don manganak, although sobrang magastos sa pamasahe, sa bayad sa doctor sa pinas at kung ano ano pang gastusin pag uwi... but the most important things eh panatag ako at alam ko safe ang magiging panganganak ko at safe si baby... iba pa din ang mga doctor at hospital sa pinas kahit na mahal ang CS.... ang pera madali ulit kitain pero kung at stake ang health and life of the mother and baby siguro mas okay na gumastos...   :)

Post by: marssie on October 06, 2012, 07:06:49 pm
^ Hi sis, kaya nga rin dati ang gusto namin, umuwi ako sa pinas,sarap kaya manganak ng maraming mag aalaga sayo at nasa tabi mo pa nanay mo :) di ko naranasan yan sa panganay ko kasi sa Dubai ko siya pinanganak at dalawa rin lang kami ni hubby that time grabe ang hirap..  pero iniisip ko nalang may option pa naman ako na sa Al Ahli manganak kaya kinakalma mo nalang sarili ko na dito sa Doha manganak tutal parating din naman sis ko para may makasama kami :) when i opened a file sa Hamad, for second option ko lang naman siya, kaya nga nawindang din ako nung sinabi ng OB na itatry daw muna ang normal bago i-CS.. Sa first baby ko kasi pinaghandaan kong magnormal then i ended up CS kaya parang nawala na rin ako sa paghahandang maging normal at naprogram na CS na sa pangalawa ko.. but it really feels great pa rin to hear nice stories ng mga sissies natin na sa Hamad nanganak. :)

noylabmay- if you will be under your husband's sponsorship at may gulf experience ka na, malaki chances mo makakuha ng work dito.
if you will apply for a babysitter visa, hinde ka bibigyan ng same nationality.  kadalasan sri lankan ang ibibigay sau na nationality. yung mga kabayan na may nanny dito binibilhan nila ng visa yun or binigyan lang sila ng kadama visa ng officemate nilang local.

btw, anong plano nyo mga sis sa eid al adha...may planong mag crabbing at picnic.

Sis pa subscribe  :) ,Next month i'll be going to Qatar even na i don't want to. Si Hubby kasi gusto niya magkasama kami. Ang mahal pala ng apartment or matitirhan like 6000 Riyal, mga 3 bedrooms pero malaki, 2 CR, then 2 sala. Malaking adjustments gagawin ko, hindi ako sanay na maraming nakatira sa iisang house. Sanay kasi ko na tatlo lang kasama ko sa bahay. I'm not ready to accept my faith but oh well i have to go there kahit labag sa kalooban ko  :-\ .

Bukas going to Qatar embassy hay.

Hi cristyles!
to tell you the truth hinde ka matutuwas dito sa Qatar kasi syempre mas masarap pa rin sa pinas. pero  sabi nga we should look at the positive side, mas mahalaga mag kasama kayo ng iyong hubby. basta once you accept things mas magiging madali sayo ang adjustments  ;) di bale masarap naman mag shopping pagdating ng katapusan  ;D

^kung visit visa ka, karaniwan kasi na problem yung pagbi-visa, minsan walang available na filipina visa ang company or minsan yun nga mababa ang offer.
kung gusto mo itry mo rin mag apply while you are on a visit dito. kapag wala kang magustuhang job offer then wait mo ang processing ng residence visa mo under husband.
mas maganda kasi ang under husband sponsorship, malaya ka lumipat ng ibang work kapag di ka masaya sa current work mo.

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 02, 2012, 04:21:02 pm
Sort off... Meron kaming mga kakilala na wala namang hassle nakakalusot ng immigration. Pero meron din like yung last case na alam ko, kasi yung friend ko ang bumili ng business visa for him. Hinarang na sa immigration tapos naglagay na lang sya ng 40K PHP. Kawawa naman di ba?

My friend recently came with working visa di naman daw sila na hassle. And so did the husband of my friend on family visit visa. I'm bringing my brother by the end of the month with a family visit visa and hopefully di naman sya ma-question. Before, I brought my parents here tinanong sila kung ano yung purpose ng pagpunta nila. Inexplain naman nila that I was going to give birth that time kaya sila pupunta at pinakita yung affidavit of support. Pero hinassle pa rin si daddy sabi may kapangalan kasi sya na may kaso and ipostpone na lang daw muna yung travel. Till I guess they figured out wala naman ibibigay parents ko sa kanila haha.

But recently kasi they stopped issuing visas, not sure if to filipinas lang or filipinos in general because of the mandate of the Philippine government na basic pay ng mga maids. It might get a bit tighter as well at immigration.

Pupunta ka ba dito sis? What visa do you have? I think kung husband's visa ka naman it shouldnt be too difficult.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: cristyles on December 02, 2012, 06:58:08 pm
^Sis i just have Personal Visit Visa, si Hubby kasi gustong pumunta ako dyan sa Qatar this month to celebrate Christmas together. We're newlyweds and naka-reserve na yung plane ticket ko for this month flight. Si hubby nagwowork sa Government dyan. And now because of the news i heard about sa immigration, biglang kinabhan ako. Sayang naman yung gagastusin ko sa flight at sa pag process ko sa Qatar Embassy. This coming tuesday ko pa lang makukuha yung passport ko sa Qatar Embassy(Taguig).

Any advise sis? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated :) . Iniisip ko pa lang ngayon parang sayang yung mga dadalhin kong gamit at pasalubong kay Hubby.

Sis shocking yung 40K pesos, ang laki (O_O) . My sister said na may kakilala siyang nagwowork sa immigration, ang sahod lang daw is 15K, pero lumalaki sahod nila sa mga involuntary tip. Naku! lalo na ngayon it's Christmas baka nag-iimpon na sila ng pondo  :-X .
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 03, 2012, 08:22:56 pm
Sis, my advise is, like what I am doing for my brother and ito din ginawa ng officemate ko for her husband, make sure you have the following pag dating sa airport immigration:

1. Affidavit of Support - kukunin to ng hubby mo sa embassy dito sa Qatar. He needs to present his salary certificate.
2. Show your wedding certificate
3. Your husband will have to send the original affidavit of support, ask him to include a copy of his QID, passport copy with the visa sticker, copy of employment contract if possible, pati copy ng salary certificate.
4. If you're husband is given accommodation allowance and is renting out, its good to have a copy of the contract (kahit na arabic pa)
5. Ask your hubby to make a personal letter (if possible use his company letter head and send this original as well) stating that he will be responsible for your expenses, accomodation and transportation. That he will guarantee you will not be a public liability and will make sure that you will return to Philippines accordingly.

Hassle talaga, but you have right to come sis. May visa ka na. You have to think din what your hubby went through to get your visa. Since patapos ka na rin naman from your part, go ka na.

Lastly, and on a different note... punta ka dito kasi malamig (actually napaka lamig hehe) itll be a good time for you and your hubby to bond lalo na newly wed pala kayo :D
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4

^Thank you so much sis :D , later going na ako sa Qatar Embassy. Yes, sis meron rin akong affidavit of support, salary certificate, passport niya, employment contract niya, yung problem ko lang ata  is yung marriage certificate (hindi ko pa napapa-authenticate) but later i will go ahead sa Old DFA :) .

Sis necessary bang magdala ng US dollar? Parang namention ni Hubby na magdala daw ako ng $600-$800. Ayaw ko kasing maglabas ng US dollar sa account ko lalo na kung wala naman talagang pag gagamitan.

Uu sis malamig daw dyan ngayon ;D , naka-ready na yung mga jackets and socks ko LOL.. Excited na ako Yay!

Post by: kyuting13 on December 04, 2012, 06:19:33 pm
Sis, its not a bad idea to bring USD just in case you get asked. Pero wala ka naman babayaran na visa pagdating na dito. Actually you should just be careful pag sa immigration natin.

I'm really sorry if all my post seems to be negative regarding the immigration at NAIA, just had a very bad personal experience din kasi. And to be honest I've been out of Philippines since 2007 and everytime uuwi ako NAIA still looks the same. Last Oct I noticed bata na yung mga immigration officer and thought it might be different na. Apparently, someone told me hindi daw. Sorry out of topic.

Well...advance Marhaba! Welcome to Qatar :D

sis yung h2b ko is nasa saudi right now. After ng contract niya uuwi siya rito sa pinas tapos after 6months ikakasal na kami. After ng wedding plan niya pumunta ng qatar for visit visa tapos apply. Kung swertihin siya kukunin niya ko. Kung malasin babalik siya sa saudi as direct hire. Question sis. Mahigpit na ba ang visit visa nila sa Qatar? I mean pagdating niya ba ng qatar dun siya hinaharang ng mga officer? or dito palang sa pinas hinaharang na?
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 06, 2012, 03:03:15 pm
In my opinion it would be easier for him kung from Saudi punta na sya sa Qatar kasi he wont have to deal with Philippine Immigration. Im not sure kung true talaga na naghigpit talaga ang Qatar sa pagiissue ng mga visa but that may only apply to females... though lagi naman talagang mas mahigpit sila sa visa ng babae.

Feeling ko kasi pag nag tourist visa ang hubby mo dito sa Qatar at nakita sa Philippine Immigration iaassume talaga nila na maghahanap sya ng work, issue yun kasi may drama sila na dapat working visa na, baka di pa makaalis ang hubby mo. My suggestion is kung after ng contract nya makahanap sya ng way pumunta ng Qatar directly then its better. Kung ang worries nya ay hindi sya makakauwi for the wedding baka pwede naman mag emergency leave na lang sya that time.

hindi niya naisip yan bago kami nagplan ng wedding at nag book ng supplier omg sis. As in invitations nalang ang kulang huhu. Mahirap ang church wedding maraming papeles na dapat siya mismo ang gagawa. Wala pa siyang confirmation at need pa ng mga seminar at iba pang requirements. Bahala na! Sabihan ko nga na iexpand ang contacts niya baka sakaling may willing na company iabsorb siya na taga qatar.

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: marssie on December 09, 2012, 04:07:06 pm
^kung after ng contract niya 6months time pa naman bago ng wedding niyo, i suggest bago umalis ng saudi magapply na siya sa qatar, then from saudi to qatar, bago niya iaccept ang offer, makipagdeal siya sa company na kailangan niya umuwi ng 2months, so kung mabilis mag ayos ang company ng papers niya in four months time kasama na ang probi period, makukuha na niya ang RP niya, i think enough na ang two months sa preparation since nandyan ka naman, kami nung kinasal sa pinas 15days lang kami present then kasal na :) Medyo risky lang yung part na kailangan maayos ang visa ni hubby mo bago mag 4months, kung hindi man maayos, di goodbye muna siya sa qatar as long as wala namang RP na naprocess di siya mababan, after ng wedding niyo apply siya again sa qatar at least yung months na nasa qatar siya makita na niya kung ano meron dito at the same time sumasahod pa siya.

cristyles: make sure may dala ka rin NBI mo at ni hubby mo.
kasi yung officemate ng brother ko same case kayo hinaharang pa sya sa immigration baka raw sino lang pupuntahan sa qatar, hinanapan ng NBI buti na lang at meron syang copy ng NBI ng hubby nya. mabuti na yung sigurado at dala mo lahat ng papers mo. alamin mo rin details ng company ni hubby mo.

ive heard rin na nagban ng pinay housemaids dahil hinde nag agree ang Qatar government sa 400USD$ salary.

alam ko mahigpit rin ang immigration sa pinas kapag mga naka business visa, madalas humihingi ng lagay..

kaya mag maganda pa rin ang family visit visa.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: cristyles on December 11, 2012, 09:28:33 am
^Thanks sis, buti na lang iniwan sa akin ni Hubby NBI clearance niya before siya umalis nung July. Kakakuha ko lang rin ng pina-authenticate kong NBI. Lumipat na yung pagpapa-authenticate ng documents sa new DFA which is sa Aseana near SM MOA. Magkasama na sila sa iisang building pag kukuha ng passport, mas less hassle sa pag commute :) .

Sayang naman at hindi naapprove yung 400USD$ salary para sa mga Pinay DH, sana rin in the future maapprove yung proposal na guaranteed protection & Labor Law.

Ilang days na lang flight ko na at sa Dec.19 ata ang National Day dyan sa Qatar sis?

dress code? just wear something decent, kasi dadaan ka sa immigration...dont show your shoulder and knees, i think thats safe. hinde ka naman sasawayin kung ano ang suot mo, kaya lang baka magulat ka how people will stare at you here. next week ka na pala pupunta dito excited ka na?!

Post by: kyuting13 on December 11, 2012, 08:34:17 pm
Sis cristyles, no worries... di naman kami parang nasa Saudi dito... But you should at least make sure your shoulders and knees are covered. Apparently may law dito on that... besides that kung ayaw mo mapagsabihan ng local or titigan ng mga tao just wear conservatively. In any case there are days na malamig so I think you'll really have to cover up. Pero pwede pa rin naman magfasyown... di nga lang katulad ng fashion ng pinas ;)

Sis noylabmay, di ko alam kung lifted na yung ban on issuing visas for Filipinas... meron namang hotels na nagiissue ng visa but you need to stay sa hotel nila... im not sure kung it would make a difference since sa Abu Dhabi naman kayo manggagaling.

Sis hanson15, i think the best thing to do is magapply na sya ngayon pa lang... like you said pwede sya maghongkong but you have to be able to show return tickets na manila-hk-manila... then another issue is yung pagkuha nya ng visit visa... when he goes to manila after saudi paano sya bibili ng visit visa? i think you still have ample time before your wedding...he can go to qatar after his contract in saudi but i have to tell you na di mo rin masasabi kung in one months time makakuha agad ng work si hubby mo... so i guess you guys really have to talk out your plan. To be honest baka kasi mahirapan na sya magapply if out of GCC na sya.

Post by: ms_ldr on December 13, 2012, 02:56:57 pm
noylabmay:ganun na nga ang mga batas dito, minsan depende rin sa mood ng mga arabo. pero most importantly yung "kafala system" nila needs to be reviewed. kapag nag resign ka at hinde ka nabigyan ng No objection to transfer, its either uwi ka pinas or magtyaga sa company mo. thats modern slavery. mabuti pa sa uae dapat tapusin mo lang kontrata mo then you are free na mag apply sa ibang company.

about mamoy: dun sa Qatar Distribution Company ka pwede bumili, pero dapat kumuha ka ng liqour permit (oo kasama ng liquor ang mga porky). dapat resident ka muna dito, you need to fill up a form, company letter and deposit na 1k QR. last week pumunta dad ko meron na mga de lata galing pinas, like reno(4qr), purefoods luncheon meat(13qr), sisig(10qr). yung iba galing ng denmark, like chicharon, ribs parang 50+qr, meron pork belly 100+qr  at meron yung pigue  200+qr.
marami rin nagbebenta na mga kakilala gaya ng sabi ni kyuting13, kaya lang natakot na kami kasi may incident na may baboy sa car then biglang may traffic violation on the spot nahuli ng pulis, nakita yung baboy eh wala naman liqour permit, ayun kulong at napauwi. kaya ingat ingat na rin tayo.

4.   Clarks, Point Zero & Mephisto in Lagoona Mall
5.   51 East
6.   UCB @ Al Mana Tower

9.   Sony Products

How about ang porky, mahal ba..? I dont eat fish kaya mahilig ako sa oink oink

If you want to buy pork, isa lang ang bilihan dito – Qatar Distribution Company or QDC. You or your husband needs to secure a Liquor Permit. Those who have this permit are the only one allowed to enter QDC.  Apparently, etong QDC bilihan lang talaga ng alak pero dito mo lang din mabibili ang porky.

Porky prices are like:

Reno – QR5
Luncheon Meat – QR10
Normally iyong mga pork part (spare ribs, lean back, etc) ranges between QR 100 to QR 200.
Last year nga may hamon sana magtinda ulit this year ;)

Oh my mistake, wala namang ibang luncheon meat brand kundi Purefood so perhaps your price is right. The QR10 pala is the Purefoods sisig pala…Hubby ko lang kasi nagpupunta doon to buy liquor & porky products. I seldom go anywhere else especially now malapit na kong manganak…

Re Al Mana Tower, meron doon BHs, UCB, Mango, Women’s Secret & 2 coffee shops. Iyong 2/F di pa kasi open ang mga shop…

Let us all congratulate…

Sis marssie for giving birth to a healthy baby boy last 13th December 2012.

Sis mameejhy for her Caleruega church wedding last 14th December 2012.

Marahaba Sis cristyles, hope you will be adjusted to Qatar soon.

& of course to Qatar for their National Day on Tuesday (18th December 2012).

Talagang nagiiba na ang panahon. Back in 2008, I remember November pa lang umuulan na. This year ang ulan December na and middle of the month pa bago lumamig talaga. Saka parang today ko lang nawitness sa Qatar na one whole day almost di tumitila talaga.

Stay safe everyone :)

^ sis ms_ldr thanks :) oo nga sa breastfeeding na ako nangungulit at gusto ko talagang magbreastfeed, meron kaya ditong mga nag assist hehe sa pinas kasi may mga seminars akong nababasa.


**My Sweet November**   thanks sis :) Ill pray for your safe delivery din..

I gave birth in Al Ahli nga pala, di ko na rin kasi natuloy yung plan ko sa Hamad, since valid pa naman ang insurance ko. ;D it was a good experience compared sa naranasan ko sa UAE.

Kami naman bukod sa kapapanganak ko palang nakuntento na rin kasi kami sa panonood lang sa TV ng Qatar National Day, tamad kasi maglakad ng malayo ang panganay ko,nagpapabuhat eh 33kilos pa naman.. Tsaka sabi kasi matraffic daw..

and by the way, nice meeting you sis rianne_00, ang liit nga pala talaga ng Doha, ngayon ko lang narealize, minsan tuloy naisip ko dapat yata bago ako makipagkwentuhan tanungin ko muna, GTalker ka ba :D Hope to meet all Qatar sissies here soon too.

Buti nagcheck ako gt before going to work yesterday kaya nagka idea ako na baka isa si sis marssie sa mga patients/guests namin sa al ahli, and tama nga ako hehe

Sino naman kaya susunod kong aabangan dito? :), ikaw na ba susunod sis my sweet november?

Good Day!Mga sisses :) .. Ang saya kagabi ng National Day, ngayon lang ako nakakita ng ganung klaseng unity. I mean ganun ka-big deal sa kanila ang National Day, medyo natakot ako sa ibang Land Cruiser kasi ba naman lumalagpas na sila sa lane ng kalye, nagpapatugtog ng malakas at may dalang sprayer. Di kami umabot sa Cornice kasi traffic kaya nag park na lang kami somewhere and sulit ang moments :D .

Parang wala akong nakikitang whitening soaps sa mga grocery section nila. Sa lulu hypermarket wala rin :-\ . May reseller ba dito ng Royale Kojic Soaps?
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 19, 2012, 12:32:01 pm
Good morning!

Belated Happy National Day :) I think yesterday was quite tame compared to the past years celebration. Natuto na ang mga tao not to bring their cars. Ang saya when people just walked all the way back from the corniche to hamad signal... ang daming tao! But the parade was good... sana lang next year mas cultural pa... expected na kasi yung military display nila :)

Congrats sis Marssie with your new baby. I gave birth in Hamad and immediately after recovery iaassist ka na nila mag breastfeed...medyo brutal nga lang kasi ipress talaga nila para lumabas yung milk. But after yung mga succeeding hindi naman na. I think if ever may magassist sa hospitals lang meron nun dito.

Sis Cristyles, may mga whitening soaps dito pero hindi lahat ng brand available. The usual papaya soaps will be there pero madalang yung kojic type. Try mo sa Filipino Souk :)

rianne_00 sa al ahli ka pala? we were there last 2 weeks ago, mom ko na admit sa CCU...ang daming kabayan pala dun.

kyuting13: baket nung nanganak ako sa hamad pina cup feeding na agad si baby then nung second time na sinabi ko i breastfeed ko parang naiinis pa yung nurse nag aasist sa akin ??? that was last yr. nagulat nga ako at pinainom na nya agad ng formula yung anak ko.

online lang kami nanood ng national day parade kahapon, nagulat nga kami nung naglakad ang emir at bumati pa sa mga tao...di rin kami nanood ng fireworks, kasi last yr we were there ang hirap umalis sa traffic, ubos oras. kaya nag landmark na lang kami. gusto sana namin mag the pearl pa around 8pm, kaso nga lang matraffic sa area na yun kaya uwian na lang.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 19, 2012, 02:34:18 pm
Sis ms_ldr, last 2010 pa ako nanganak... pero nung nasa recovery room ako ininsist talaga magbreastfeed agad... pero may lagnat kasi si baby nung pinanganak ko... so nasa NICU sya after pinagformula din sya kasi 2 days pa kami under observation pareho, dahil nilagnat din ako habang nanganganak. Though pinipilit ko talaga maglakad after from my room to NICU para magtry mag breastfeed. Baka natyempohan ka lang ng nurse? Ang alam ko pag-hamad talagang priority nila na makapagbreastfeed ka. Or baka hindi na ngayon?
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: ms_ldr on December 19, 2012, 03:08:39 pm
^yun nga rin ang pagkaunawa ko na breastfeed ang gusto nila, nagbleeding raw ako kaya nagstay pa ko sa operating room for a while for observation kaya naka 2 feeding pa si baby. iniisip ko na lang palagi na 100 qr lang binayaran namin sa panganganak ko.  salamat sa Qatar! ;D

maiba naman tayo, anong plano nyong handa sa pasko?
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 19, 2012, 04:05:36 pm
True, kami 3 days stay 300 lang. Tapos lahat ng nakaissue kay baby na diaper, formula, cotton ipinauwi nung discharged na kami :)

Unting handaan lang. Wala kaming pasok dineclare na employer's day ng company. Pero si hubby meron so bahay lang siguro with some favorites for dinner :) Sa new year na lang bawi :D

anong menu nyo? si hubby baka mag half day na lang sya on christmas day, malamang puyatan sa noche buena with relatives. nag crave ako ng embutido kaya nagluto ako chicken version, di naman nasatisfy cravings ko, kasi di ko nakuha lasa na gusto ko ;D gusto ko rin ng ube halaya.. dame cravings.

Infairness masarap cake sa Opera huh... nakarami na ako sa slices ng chocolate cake ;D . Sarap maglakad kagabi, while walking nakita ko yung Red Lobster restaurant, may nakapag-try na ba dun sa inyo mga sis? Mukhang masarap :D .
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: marssie on December 20, 2012, 02:46:07 pm
^ masarap din sa red lobster, kaso ako pasta nila nagustuhan ko, price is almost same lang sa fridays yun nga lang nakontian ako sa servings ng red lobster.

@rianne hi sis, buti naman nag enjoy MIL mo, sabihin mo sa kanya habang tag lamig pa mas masarap laging nasa labas :) pero kailangan maranasan din niya kakaibang humid sa qatar para maconvince mo siya magstay till 7months ;D

@kyuting thanks sis.. Okay ang al ahli pag may insurance :) yun nga lang pag na NICU ang baby at di covered bayad ka talaga ng malaki, like what happened sa son ko,awa ng Diyos 6hours lang siya.. kasi 5k/day rate nila pero may option naman to transfer sa hamad kung sakali..regarding breastfeeding,unlike sa pinas may hospitals na di agad binibigyan ng formula ang baby, sa al ahli binigyan ang anak ko, pero di ko lang sure kung sakaling nagbigay ako ng instruction baka hindi nila binigyan, nawala na rin kasi sa isip ko dahil biglaan panganganak ko na dapat scheduled sa pasko pa.  May nag aassist din sa al ahli sa pagbibreastfeed, pinuntahan niya ako sa room then nakiusap din ako na iassist ako nung kasama ko na si baby, susunod daw kasi may bayad na buti di ako siningil, pero i like her, kasi ang lumanay niyang magturo.. Sa 1st son ko ganon din experience ko nilampirot boobs ko, wala naman lumabas nasaktan lang ako..

Ngapala, pwede kayang dalhin ang newborn sa hamad para ipacheck up kahit wala pang passport? Inaayos palang kasi papers ng son ko..
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on December 20, 2012, 03:12:00 pm
Hala! Sis marssie, kung ganun pala sa hamad sa 3 days na nagstay si baby sa NICU naka 15K kami.. huhuhu... Thank God for Hamad hehe :D Ako kasi that time set on mix formula talaga. Naisip ko mahirap masyado maging dependent si baby sa breast milk kasi paano pag lalabas kami or pag nagwork ako. Which is true kasi there was a time na nag all breast feed ako, di na sya sanay magbottle. It took a while magre-train again. Saka for me it was easier for him to wean to formula.

Sorry po... di na masyadong related ata sa Qatar ang post ko :D

On a different topic... Im bringing my brother over next week. Baka po may alam kayong hospitals or clinics na hiring. Nurse kasi sya sa pinas... but like we all know ang hirap maghanap ng stable hospital job sa atin, so he'll try his luck here.

Sis kyuting

Yup, kaya nga ako nag open ng file sa hamad kasi since start ng pregancy ko low lying placenta ako.. Baka daw kasi 6months manganak ako so hamad talaga takbo ko..nung manganganak na ako sobra pray ako na wag ma nicu baby ko at maging healthy pero dahil kulang pa sa araw nadmit, pero thankful pa rin ako kasi healthy siya, mababa lang talaga timbang niya.. And i consider it as an advantage pala ewan ko kung nagbibigay din sa hamad pag may risk ang pagbubuntis, i was given a dexamethasone (not sure sa spelling) para sa lung maturity ng baby in case lumabas siya bago magfull term..

At least birth certificate sana...pero sabi ng sis in law ko sa doha clinic naman sya nanganak, tapos need nya mag transfer sa hamad para sa chek up ng pamangkin ko, they arranged all his documents lalo na yung vaccination card before they proceed sa hamad. Dito sa may health center airport meron emergency na pang bata lang, mag inquire ka kaya dun or mas maganda daw sa al sadd emergency yung sa corner after toys are us.

Hello everyone...! Good day to all of you mga kababayan :)! I've been looking for reviews about working in Qatar, glad I've found this thread. Tagal ko na ding di nakapag Gtalk. Btw, been looking for a job abroad almost a year now, pahirapan naman tlaga. At first, either Australia or Canada were my first option, but looking through the processing period and chances medyo slim talaga.

Anyway, I'm from Cebu pla, any from you here mga sis knows an agency near my place kasi masyadong malayo ang Universal Staffing Services (Manila) for me to apply there? I currently work for a banking industry (rural bank) for a year now as Officer-In-Charge, then prior to this job I was with financing industry which happened to be an affiliate company of my present employer, isa lang may ari, my employment was just transferred actually so by now I have a total 4 years working experience. I've been browsing different sites related to jobs at Qatar but I got no luck so far. Btw, apat ang anak ko kya nag decide ako to look for an overseas job. Nakaka frustrate minsan kasi sa dami dami kung inaplayan wala ni isa pang tumawag. Sana may ma recommend kayong mga sites na pwede kong maapplyan mga sis sobrang need ko na talaga mag abroad :(. Natatawa nako minsan sa sarili ko kasi pag [textspeak!] local lang ako mag aapply ang dali ko matanggap, pero bat ganon sa abroad wala man lang hehe...my way of life kasi is to really never give up kaya eto try again :))...

Sis malapit lang kami sa Red Lobster, dinadaan-daanan lang namin, sige try namin doon next week. Diet mode muna, puro chibugan kasi pasimula nung dumating ako dito sa Qatar hehe! Buti na lang may Korean store dito, nakabili ako ng Ramyun noodles, anghang niya at swak na swak ngayong tag-lamig :) .

Medyo nagsasawa na ako sa Villagio, City Center, sa The Mall parang perfume lang ata kaya kong bilhin doon , sa Hyatt naman ang lungkot mag-grocery. Ang pinaka-the-best grocery spot para sa akin yung Lulu hehe! Ang the best tambayan for me is souq waqif kasi matao at habang bumibili ako ng nuts eh mabubusog na ako sa kakatikim lahat ng kinds of nuts ;D .

Sis Noylabmay, how old na po baby mo? Normally, yung son ko sa Hamad emergency pedia ko dinadala in Al Saad. Kaya lang di ko sure baka hingian kayo ng medical card. But you can also check sa Qatar Medical Center sa may Salwa Road for Dra. Pulvera (filipina) or yung Pedia nila dun. If I am not mistaken 150 yung consultation fee kapag walang insurance. You can also check sa Future Medical, yung malapit sa Villaggio. Before kasi they were offering a card which was around 300 and valid for a year na yun sa lahat ng consultations.

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: ms_ldr on February 06, 2013, 02:56:12 pm
Cristyles: about Residence Visa: medyo di ko kabisado lahat pero eto lang yun natatandaan ko ha..
 - No objection Certificate from husband's company to put you under residence visa together with a filled up application Form. (company ni hubby ang gagawa nito for you, madalas company na rin nag sa submit sa immigration, otherwise si hubby mo na lang.)
- bank statement 6mos
-electricity no. / house contract

pa double check mo na lang sa PRO ng company ni hubby mo.

Marssie: yung baby ko 1 yr old na now pero wala pa rin sya health card (kasi till 12noon lang ang applyan sa health center airport, di ko lagi maabutan) ang ginagamit nya yung vaccination card for vaccinations sa health center. kasi paglabas ko sa hamad meron na kami ganun kahit wala pang Birth certificate or passport si baby. magtanong ka na lang sa health center nyo.

share ko lang pala, sa office ng sister ko may hiring sila ng Receptionist.
maliit lang ang sahod bagay sa mga nag uumpisa pa lang preferrably age 26 and below and available for an interview on sunday.
visa available sila. pero under family sponsorship pwede rin mag apply.
may annual ticket at transpo provided.
pls submit cv agafe.one@hotmail.com, subject title: "RECEPTIONIST"

isa pa kong hirit: for sale pala: http://www.facebook.com/groups/196520010410827/permalink/480846001978225/#!/Celiaonlineshop/photos_albums

My Husband is planning to get me this year under family visa, kaya lang ang problema ay meron akong lung scar, mahigpit kasi ang qatar sa ganung case. Pero yung sakin hindi naman siya active. Medyo natatakot talaga ko. Meron kasi akong nakita na list kung saan ka pwedeng magpamedical, merong under ng GAMCA and Non-GAMCA. Meron na ba dito sa thread natin na may ganitong case na nakaalis? Please help me mga sis....

My husband wants to transfer sana from saudi kaya lang not sure nya about sa cost of living jan sa qatar. Is it the same kaya with dubai lifestyle? Mejo ok na kasi sha sa work nya sa saudi its just that alam nyo naman gano kahigpit ang life dun. And also if you know any vacancy for accounting?. For me naman to. Gusto ko ana try muna if ok then saka sha sunod.i am applying din sa workabroad pero parang puro male ang hanap nila. Is it advisable na punta ako jan under visit visa to find work?

sis pareho tayo ng case. My h2b is from saudi rin. Pero ang plan namin next year uuwi siya ng pinas. Saka siya pupunta ng qatar. Hindi ko alam pano niya gagawin yun kasi mahigpit ang mga immigration satin. Or baka bayaran nalang niya i dont know talaga. May next year matatapos contract niya. Maganda nga sana dumiretso sa qatar saka umuwi ng november for our wedding para sure na may pupuntahan na hindi ko pa talaga alam kung pano gagawin.

Post by: toscka on March 04, 2013, 01:01:49 pm
Sis i am not sure id this is the right thread pero with saudi di ba they need exit visa? And usually the company pays for the ticket so sila din mag book nun. E baka naka indicate country of origin is phils.  Mas ok if uwi muna then apply sa qatar. Not sure lang din gano kahigpit ang qatar embassy dito sa atin in issuing visa. Mas gusto ko kasi sa qatar para maiba naman. We came from dubai kasi so change of country naman.

Hello mga sis, i was planning to send a gift (watch) to qatar, my concern is when the parcel gets there, does the recipient need to pay for any tax or duties to claim it? The courier could not answer me straight so I need to know because this is a surprise gift and it will be humiliating if the recipient will have to pay anything just to get the gift.


Thanks:)

Cristyles: about Residence Visa: medyo di ko kabisado lahat pero eto lang yun natatandaan ko ha..
 - No objection Certificate from husband's company to put you under residence visa together with a filled up application Form. (company ni hubby ang gagawa nito for you, madalas company na rin nag sa submit sa immigration, otherwise si hubby mo na lang.)
- bank statement 6mos
-electricity no. / house contract

Sis na-reject application ko for PR hayz :( . I think mali yung nagawa namin sa house contract kasi hindi naka-pangalan sa amin yung house contract. Naka-pangalan dun sa isang kasama namin dito sa Flat. Siya kasi yung naka-hanap ng Flat, then 1 year contract kami dito.

Sa May na ulit kami pwepwedeng mag-pasa ng PR application ulit. Need ko na naman mag-extend :-\ .

But im planning to work there na din. Im trying to apply sa mga agencies dito, kaya lang puro manpower pooling lang, tas yung iba gusto lalake pa.

How bad/good are my chances if i look for work while im on my visit visa? How's qatar foundation?

Im a cpa, worked in an external audit firm for just over a year then temporarily retired as a housewife...

If accounting related job, madami ba dyan? Hindi rin naman ako choosy...

My husband can sponsor on family visa  but our issues prohibits him from doing that.. Im waiting for dream job in the Phils, but I can put that on hold because my marriage is a lot more important. He wants me to have a career here in the Phils din kasi..l i started out pretty well, bumagsak lang katawan ko from prior work kaya tumigil muna ko...

muy003, maybe you can try to check bayt.com for vacancies in Doha, Qatar, to see how is the accounting related field requirements here in Doha. or gulftalent.com

qatar foundation has a website too, just google.

i say its better to be here in Doha, mas competitive ang salary offer, may mga visa issues rin included. some company na hire ka na but they still have to apply for your visa para mabigyan ka ng working visa sa qatar. you can post ads in the newspaper and wait till somebody call you for interview, if you got few years of good experience maybe you can choose between several job offers.

but if you want to play it safe go ahead and apply thru agencies in the Philippines, siguradong may work ka pagdating mo dito, mostly ang downside nito pagdating ng mga empleyado dito sa Doha na disappoint sila na ang baba ng salary offer nila compared with those on the same position. basta mababa ang job offer kapag galing pinas talaga.

hope that helps.

Hi sis, si hubby naman galing ng abu dhabi, luckily nakahanp ng work sa Doha. Mag-end na ang contract nya sa abu dhabi this April 30, 2013 and he's moving directly in Doha (all expense paid na ng new employer nya). Sis, try kamo ni hubby mo na magapply sa chiyoda. Dun kasi nakuha si hubby, he's Instrument Designer naman. Praise God, pag andun na sya on May, 6 months na lang bibilangin namin, pede na nya ko kunin.

Infairness sis, I can say fair ang offer ni Chiyoda hindi man nahigitan ang sweldo ni hubby in abu dhabi, what matter is pwede na kami magkasama yun naman kasi ang goal nya kaya tinanggap nya.

Btw, galing din ng saudi si hubby, at yes super hirap dw dun, kaya ayaw nya ko isama dun. sa sobrang gusto humanap ng lugar na pede nya ko isama, kung saan-saan na sya napadpad. By faith, finally, nabigay narin ang matagal na namin pinapagpray. So ask your hubby if gusto nya yun Chiyoda then apply lang sya ganon lang kasi ginawa ni hubby noon. In just 24hours, may offer na kagad sakanya. Good luck sis!

princeszheng: chiyoda is a japanese company which means na ok sya. noon pa yan sila dito sa qatar.
sis, once matatak sa passport ni hubby mo ang work visa nya alam ko pwede ka na i visit visa (it can be extended up to 6 mos) dito sa doha, then while you are here pwede na ituloy sa residence permit ang visa mo, once maka 6 mos bank statement na sya.

Hi mga sis, baka meron po gt sis sa qatar na nurse. Ask ko lang po kung meron bang job opportunity ang mga nurses jan ngayon? If meron, kung via agency here sa pinas kame mag apply may possiblity kaya na matanggap kame ni hubby eh parehas po kameng walang xp? Kung sakali oo, mga magkano naman po kaya nagrerange ang salary ng mga inexperience nurses na hinahire nila? sasapat ba yun para sa pamumuhay jan at padala sa relatives at ipon? Sana po may makasagot kahit yung cost of living lang sa qatar like yung breakdown ng food, rent, transpo etc. Mag job hunt kasi kame ni hubby sa ibat ibang agencies dito sa pinas. Salamat po. Godbless ^_^

@sis yanmae minimum of 2 years experience na ni rerequire nila bago k makapag apply as nurse dito.. and you have to passed the prometric exam and the data flow.. most of the companies here will provide you with transportation and accommodation, so might as well makakaipon naman depende sa style of living. :)

thanks po sa pagsagot sis. Hindi po ba haad yung exam jan sis? sabi kasi ng friend ko sa saudi kapag dubai or qatar haad daw ang exam. prometric daw exam nila sa saudi at keri naman daw yung exam mas mahirap pa daw nursing boards dito sa pinas. kung 2 years xp po as school nurse pwede na kaya yun sis? o hospital setting dapat? baka may kakilala po kayo jan na walang xp na nakapag work jan as nurse. salamat sis!

question lang po. i have a 14 year old daughter who will be joining me here on a resident visa status. she already passed the medical exam (not really sure if it's needed) in one of the accredited clinics by the qatar embassy but before getting the medical clearance, she needs to have a vaccine daw?

MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine daw ang kailangan before they give the clearance. I was just wondering if this is just a ploy to get some money from us. kasi why only MMR, if they are really strict they should include other diseases as well.

but if your an OFW, you're not required to have a vaccine, only minors lang daw on a residence visa, parang may mali.

Hello Sisses, im a newbie here. Two months palang dito sa qatar and currently looking for a school for my 4 year old boy. Nakakasad nga kasi lahat nalang pag di waiting list eh for next school year na. Anyone who can give me feedback with YAM ( Young Achievers Montessori ) Eto kasi yung medyo malapit sa amin, we are just here as old airport area. And san ko pa kaya puede maipasok [textspeak!] anak ko? How about PISQ, naka waiting list pa kasi sya waiting for a call this week.

Anyway sisses, magtatanong na din ako for vaccination procedures here. I have a 20 month old pa kasi. And base on my vaccination sched sa atin, need nya vaccines this month. Di ako makakita ng vaccination schedule na sinusunod dito sa qatar. Hope anyone can help.

Kung wala man mapasukan [textspeak!] anak ko, maybe there could be any other special classes.

Sis una sa lahat make sure that you will be given a work visa pagdating mo dito.

Ang tourist visa is always arranged via hotel or travel agency. Kung pupunta ka dito as tourist you need to show proof san ka titira, hotel bookings. Dapat kung sino nag arranged ng visa mo ay bibigyan ka rin ng proper guidance pano ka makakalagpas sa immigration ng maayos.  At show money of atleast 5k qatari riyals or credit card. Asive heard di naman literally ipapakita yung pera, yung iba tinatanong lang magkano ang dala nilang pocket money.

yes sis sabi daw sa agency na pinagtanungan nya hindi daw pwede iextend ang tourist visa. sis kaya kaya ng family visa kung 2700 qr lang yung salary ng husband ko? do you know agencies na pwede pagtanungan about visa? Thanks sa help sis.. :)
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: kyuting13 on July 16, 2013, 02:59:56 pm
Hi mga Sis hope this clears up some of the questions here...

 1. tourist visa is one month lang talaga although plus side is alam ko kung makakuha ka ng work or sponsor pwede kang lumipat dahil irerelease ka naman ng travel agency na kinunan mo.
2. nasa 10K na po ata ang minimum salary requirement for a husband to be able to do family sponsorship... before kasi 7K and now some are saying 12K na...
3. kung galing pinas alam ko immigration makes a big fuss kung naka business visa kasi tatanungin ka nila kung ano yung business mo sa Qatar, so some friends transit from another asian country para di maharang... may kakilala kami nag bigay ng 40K sa immigration para lang matuloy sa flight...
4. If less than the required ang salary ng husband baka iapprove naman sya for family visit visa which is extendable up to 6 months... at least its longer period where the wife can possibly look for a job.

To be honest Qatar is stable and good if you find work here... pero ang alam ko hirap maghanap ng work ngayon. Sa Gulf Times alone ang konti na ng classifieds pero yung nagpapa-ads na naghahanap ng work almost 3 pages na inaabot. You have to be sure you're prepared for everything cost of living here - food, transportation, accommodation. And for those that are new to Qatar minsan binabarat ng companies ang salary kasi alam nilang walang choice or dahil sabi nila walang experience working in the Gulf.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but at I dont want to just paint you a pretty picture tapos pagdating dito you didnt know what to expect.

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: **My Sweet November** on July 22, 2013, 01:58:23 am
^ Wala ngang tinda dito both Ceelin & Cherifer. Kami ang ginagawa namin nagdadala na kami ng vitamins ng 3 kids ko good for 1 year supply. In case na maubos tapos hindi pa kami babakasyon sa 'Pinas nakikisuyo na lang kami sa mga kakilala na ipagdala kami.

Minsan may nagpost 'ata sa Market Market Qatar (FB Group ito) ng nagtitinda ng Ceelin, Cherifer wala pa.

Your other option is to change your kids vitamins of course after consultation with your kid's pedia.

^ My brother works as a Radiologist in one of the polyclinics here in Qatar. Gusto nga niya lumipat sa Hamad pero hindi nagbibigay ng NOC iyong polyclinic na napasukan niya. Tourist visa? That's only good for 28 days then eexit ka? Just my POV, kulang ang 28 days to look for a job then transfer of sponsorship.

Hamad Hospital, I'm not aware if they accept walk in appli, mostly kasi dito puro online application na. Tinanong ko nga din ito kay Sis Kookie 'coz her sister in law works as a nurse in Hamad. Sidra naman better check on the career section of their site what do they need? I'm also not aware if Sidra accepts walk in applicant but if you want to give it a try, Sidra is located in Al Nasr Tower opposite QPost.

Suggestion ko din sayo try to start applying as early as now tapos mention mo sa cover letter mo na you'll be in Qatar on this date, etc.

"Family" ba ang status ng hubby mo when he was hired. Minsan kasi sa mga company although married "single" status lang ang nilalagay sa type ng visa sponsorship. In that case kahit pasok pa sa salary bracket hubby mo, it is quite difficult to sponsor wife & kids. Halos lahat ng kasama kong male sa company puro single din status nila sa sponsorship pero almost all of them married. What they normally do na lang is to apply a family visit visa for their wife. Tapos wife maghahanap ng work & eventually magpapa sponsor kung kanino mang employer.

Kung may work ka ask mo na lang employer mo if they are willing to provide you a visa. Ang problem lang talaga ninyo is iyong kid nyo...

Negative kasi kami ng family visit visa because of his salary, and kung tourist naman, sayang lang for 1 month kasi for sure hindi ako agad makakahanap ng work.

Noylabmay: sis wag mashado ma stress, konting patience pa. kasi minsan ganyan nga sa una de-deny ang family visa application then sa second try ok na. meron kaming mga kakilala working at IKEA, pasok sa salary bracket ang salary pero denied on the first try, pero nung second ok na. i suggest i pa reserve mo na sa school ang anak mo, kasi tumatanggap rin naman ang mga school ng mga enrolee's kahit na still under process ang RP nila.  Konting prayers pa sis  ;)

orange lover:   kung ngayon ka pupunta, still summer, maraming nakabakasyon, hinde season ng hiring for some. i suggest for Hamad you go through their agency in the Philippines, thats Universal Staffing.  mas smooth yun at mas easy for you. sila na lahat mag pa process sayo at wala kang babayaran tapos pagdating mo may work ka na agad.malaking risk ang ita take mo kung pupunta ka dito as tourist visa, baka later on tanggapin mo na lang ang kahit anong work para lang maka stay ka dito..mahirap yun. Pag aralan mo mabuti yan..

dec212012: you can try tourist visa, ang ginagawa dyan, after 28 days mag eexit ka and balik ulet using tourist visa pa rin. you can do that for up to 3 months. magastos yan, maraming mapagsamantala lalo na mga kabayan na nag ta trabaho sa travel agency. ang dami ko ng narinig. ingat lang sis.

Ang problema, nakikirent lang si hubby, so ang rental agreement nakapangalan sa kabayan na nirentahan nya. Naitry nya ipasa yun rental agreement since di nakapangalan sa kanya ayaw tanggapin sa immigration.
Ano ba pwede magawa?  :( TIA

13k QAR Sisses...  hehe...

Yung 13k QAR, pag yung husband ko lang mag-isa sa Qatar, after 6 months, pwede na kami sumunod ng mga kids ( 2 kids ).
Hindi na libre ang house pero may dagdag allowance pa na around 7k QAR. To cover for the rent, So aabot ng 20k QAR pag family na kami na andon.

Good na yun no?

Sana lang mkaka nap ako ng school para sa Grade 1 ko.

@mameejhy -- ay sad to say, maliit lang yung ico-cover ng company para sa schooling  ng bata. Pero anyway, atleast meron diba? thanks sa answers mo sis, very helpful..

@marssie  -- Sa Singapore ang current work ng asawa ko, Sis. Almost same lang din ng basic pay yung current work nya and yung offer sa kanya ngayon. Pero ang maganda sa contract nya sa Qatar ngayon, e permanent,  at free naman din ang house kung mag-isa lang sya, may dagdag na allowance for din housing, kung sakaling sasama kami ng mga kids namin sa Qatar. 
Yung sa SG kasi nya, walang free accomodation. Ang mahal ng room nya sa SG - almost 1K SGD/month ( 35K Php ).
Lalo na kung isasama nya kami sa SG.. aabot sa 2.5K -3KSGD ang isang buong bahay... equivalent na sa Php 90-100K for rent alone. kamusta naman ang magiging savings namin diba? hehe...

karaniwan ginagawa nyan ay business visa, pero hinde direct sa Doha ang flight. minsan SG, Bangkok or any other Asian countries. kunyari mag tourist ka lang sa mga bansang yun.

^13K QR engineer? Hindi ba mababa yun? Yun mga kakilala ko sa private eh umaabot ng 20k per month ang sahod.
depende rin siguro sa salary range per company. may iba na malaki magbigay yung iba katamtaman lang.
pero panigurado a big chunk ng salary goes to house rent. yung 7k tama lang pang apartment. pero marami naman ways para makamura.

sis sa schooling ng bata isama mo na rin yung gastos sa transport nya. at kung gusto mo sa Philippine school Doha, magpareserve ka ng maaga, as in!. kasi maraming naka wait list.

Good luck sa inyo!

Hi po,

Help naman po regarding redribbon ng documents.

Salamat.

so far kung husband visa ka, mas malaki ang chance mo makahanap ng work, kasi sa ngayon mahirap ang "Pinay" working visa. Madaming company ang walang visa...pero sabi ko nga, under ka naman ng husband mo, so hindi naman problema.

Ipa-red ribbon mo na lahat ng docs issued diyan sa pinas like NBI, marriage certificates, school credentials (although hindi lahat ng company humihingi nito, pero may mga company na isa sa requirements nila ang red ribbon-"ed" TOR.

I am not an expert based lang to sa experience ko and ng mga friends ko :)

Mas mabilis makahanap ng work ang naka husband visa vs business or visit visa.

@maukris - You can work in a bank... or in any companies that require admins.

sis mukang maliit kung total salary ay 7k, kung housing and transpo provided baka pwede na pagtyagaan pero maliit sya sa engineer.

Mahirap po ba makahanap ng work ang babae sa Qatar?

Help naman po regarding redribbon ng documents.

madaling makahanap ng work in a sense na hinde na kailangan ng visa approval dahil may visa na tayo under father or husband sponsorship. tyaga tyaga rin sa paghahanap, ang maganda ay malaya ka makakapili ng trabahong gusto mo.

kapag na hire na tayo, need natin ng labor card, need natin mag submit ng education certificate na attested ng DFA (red ribbon), kung high school lang need pa rin ng attestation.

ang tanong ko, anong mga allowances ang binibigay ng mga companies especially sa govt sa ating mga under husband sponsorship? aside from housing, transpo, health insurance and air ticket for self annually.

Hi mga sis! Husband ko has been working in qatar since august, pinoprocess na daw yung RP nya ngayon. Tama ba na kelangan 6months na syang nagwwork dun before masponsor kami ni baby ng family visa? Or pwede bang once nakuha nya RP nya i-visit visa muna kami then extend extend lang until maka-6mos sya? Also, what is meant by red-ribbon? Thanks po.

required kasi ng 6 mos bank statement para mai-apply nya kayong mag ina ng Residence Permit. pero once nakakuha na ng RP si mister mo pwede na kayong ma i-visit visa ni baby, maximum 6 mos yun..habang process naman ang RP nyo.

Red ribbon means na authenticate ng Dept of Foreign Affairs ng pinas, lalagyan nila ng red ribbon yung document mo, kaya siguro tinawag na "red ribbon" it only means na authenticated yung documents mo.

Thanks ms_ldr! Pwede na kaya ko magpa-red ribbon as early as now and which documents? Gusto ko kasi sana masimulan ko na rin ayusin ang mga pwede nang ayusin habang pinoprocess nya RP nya para di kami magmadali. Balak kasi namin pag-uwi nya dito sa pasko maayos na lahat & sumama na kami sa kanya pabalik ng qatar.

Also, may chance bang harangin kami sa immigrations sa naia kung visit visa pa lang kami ni baby? Pwede na bang sabihin sa IO na balak namin to extend the visit visa hanggang sa makuhanan kami ng RP? Or kelangan ko sabihin na bakasyon lang talaga kami dun & plan namin bumalik sa pinas? Magreresign na kasi ko sa work so di ko makakapagpakita ng coe.

Kung hotel - don't expect salaries higher than 3000QR
Kung offices (hindi hotel) - don't expect salaries lower than 3000QR
Kung govt offices - don't expect salaries lower than 8000QR

Thanks for this, Hubby and I (both in the field of engineering) are contemplating to transfer to another country (Qatar is my top choice), where di mahirap magdala ng family. Pahigpit na kasi ng pahigpit sa Singapore :(

Tama ba na kelangan muna pa-red ribbon muna yung marriage cert sa dfa bago ipaattest sa qatar embassy? May iba pa ba ko kelangan ipa-red ribbon & attest para isang puntahan na lang? Plano namin visit visa muna then extend extend lang hanggang maka-6mos si husband & maapply na nya kami ng RP

For the meantime, 2 weeks siya sa qatar then weekend dito or I will be the one to go there since may gcc visa naman ako that I can get a visa uponarrival till maikasal kami then husband visa na niya ako after. I will be sacrificing my job here to be with him and to be honest, di ako sanay hindiwork. Wait niya ang finalsay ko kung accept niya yjng job or hindi so feeling ko ako na pepressure, sa mga residence na sa qatar and long timd staying, ask ko lang po sana paano way of living dyan? How much yung accommodation for a 2 bedroom flat or villa sa expat community area? Madali baako makakahanap ng work? Hindi akomarunong mag arabic since mga boss ko are mostly english. Dito sa dubai, di ka maiinip kasi kabila't kanan ang malls and bars kahit restaurants and meron filipino community.

Maraming shops dito. Mura lang ang baby items - baka dito ka maghoard ;)

ask ko lang po sana paano way of living dyan? How much yung accommodation for a 2 bedroom flat or villa sa expat community area?

Ang way of living dito ay pareho lang ng way of living dyan, difference lang mas malaki ang sahod dito hihi ;D Dun sa bagong lilipatan namin na part of a villa, 2 bedroom + kitchen + living room + 1 bathroom ay 5,000+ Riyals. Dun sa aalisan namin na 3 bedroom + kitchen + living room + 2 1/2 bathrooms ay 8,000+ Riyals.

What do you mean by "expat community"? Wala yatang ganun dito kasi halos lahat ay expats haha! :D

Madali ba ako makakahanap ng work 

Admin background? Yes! Husband sponsor? Super yes! ;)

Kasi si hubby sa ezdan ngayon nakatira kaya lang parang hotel room lang. Naghahanap sya ng unit na may kitchen sabi nasa php120,000 daw kung converted. Feeling ko baka di [textspeak!] nya alam san maghanap ng mas mura na ok.

Also, may alam ba kayong travel agency dito sa pinas that provides visa stamping assistance? Sa qatar embassy kasi parang kelangan mo pumunta ng mga 5am para makapasok ka before cutoff. Di ko ata kaya yun.

Hello sisses!

Am wondering if meron sa inyo dyan who recently gave birth dito sa qatar. I'm due early May and ang worry ko lang is yung sponsorship ng baby. Magka-iba kasi kami ng sponsor ni hubby since pareho naman kami ngwo-work..also, we didnt try to apply for husband sponsorship na dahil mas preferred ng company namin na sponsored nila ako.

Anyway, dun sa naka-experience na ng ganitong scenario, pa-share naman ng experience nyo. I mean, what are the documents required? May bearing ba yung visa designation sa RP ng mother? I hear na sa mother daw automatic ang sponsorship ng baby, is this true? or pwede pa rin sa father?

Hi Sis!
Company sponsored means hawak ka ng company di ka pwede lumipat ng ibang company unless bigyan ka nila ng NOC-"No Objection Letter" whereas kapag under Family visa ka under husband sponsorship. you are free walang may hawak sayo na company. you can transfer to any company na gusto mo.

Good salary na yan 19,500 qar. kaya lang take into consideration mo kung may mga anak kayo, yung tuition fees ng mga kids and airfare ticket nyo yearly.

^Hi kailan pa dito ang hubby mo? Kung family visit visa lang naman,mabilis din mag apply ng visa. Mother ko kasi inisponsoran ni hubby eto ang requirements:

- Application Form
- Passport copy, Qatar ID at Birth Certificate ko (Birth Certificate-stamped/notarized ng Phil Embassy at MOFA dito)
- Passport copy ni hubby/Qatar ID
- Salary letter from Company (1 address sa immigration in arabic, 1 adress sa phil embassy para sa affidavit of support application)
- Marriage Contract (actually di na eto tinignan)

Need ng sponsor pero pwede ka ring magpabili sa hubby mo ng visit visa dito may mga travel agencies naman na nagbibigay ng visa, nasa Qr600-800 yata ang 1 month visa, unlike pag si hubby mo 200 yata ang bayad sa visa. sorry makakalimutin kasi ako

^make sure you have all the required docs and debit or credit card with master/visa logo. Although nakalagay doon na no number or list, punta ka pa rin ng maaga before 8 am,the earlier the better at ilista mo name mo just ask around kung saan yung listahan. Then papipilahin kayo kapag malapit na magbukas ang embassy.

is NOC required on applying visa just in case you want to fine employment in Qatar?

baka may tip kayo on how to go Qatar in easiest way I mean hindi masisista ng immigration natin.

^sis do you have relative working here in [textspeak!]? Its much easier kasi kung meron dahil may mga agencies dito na pwede magprocess but you should have invitation letter coming from them. It depends also kung anung reason ng pagpunta mo dito. If you're planning to work here, business visa ang usually na inaalok ng agencies. Good for 3months yun. Medyo mahal at risky din kasi mahirap ang immigration sa Pinas. Kapag visit lang, pwede na ang tourist visa good for 1month na yun. Need mo makaexit before 30days.

Sa Saudi Embassy ang work nila as security officers, I think sa Diplomatic St. yung location non. Meron ba kayong alam na for rent na place malapit sa diplomatic st para sa kanilang anim? Hindi kasi sagot nung employer yung lodging nila but they have 150usd each as allowance for house and food, so naghahanap sila kung san sila pwede tumira near sa work location nila.

I told him nga na sya na lang magprocess as long as complete ang docs na isa-submit nya kaya lang problem nya yung nirerent nya na bahay hindi pa nakapangalan sa kanya, di rin maasikaso ng may-ari next year pa daw kaya di sya makapag submit.

Hi sis. correction lang po. Ang family visit visa ay 200 qar lang po at hindi po ito pinaprocess sa agency. Asawa nyo po mismo ang maglalakad nito sa immigration department. Iba pa po ang resident visa.

With regards po sa agency, Tourist visa / Visit visa po ang meron sila. good for 30 days po yun, need mo mag exit then apply and comeback again. 800 QAR wala pa po ang pamasahe papunta at pabalik. need mo din ng show money.

Ganun ba sis? Thanks for your correction. Kasi yung collegue ng asawa ko nag-apply ng visa sa immigration na deny  then nagtry sa agency ayun approved ang family visit visa ng mag-ina nya. kaya balak ni hubs ganun na lang din gawin kahit mahal ang bayad. Pero baka nga visit visa lang din yun binigay sa kanila dahil tru agency lang.

Kaya preferred ko yung visit visa para madali ang process at konti lang ang requirements. I dont intend rin na magtagal max na siguro 2weeks for our first visit.

Ah ok. Kung maximum two weeks stay lang kayo, you can go under agency. But if incase gusto nyo magstay ng more than 1 month, I would suggest na i try na husband mo yung family visit visa. Mahirap pag agency under visit / tourist. Trust me. Cleopatra din ang agency ko before under tourist visa. Nag exit ako 3 times. Risky. Nung huling exit ko nag stay ako sa Bahrain airport ng 3days. Lahat ng kasama ko nakabalik na ng Qatar at dalawa kaming hindi naiprocess ang visa. May mga lapses ang agency. Ang gastos pa. You have to pay 2400 - 3000 QAR every exit, visa and two way ticket yun. Plus hahanapan kapa ng show money.

Usually nadedeny lang kapag ang salary is 5k QAR below. O napunta siya sa masungit na immigration officer. Tatlo po ang immigration department dito. Pag nadeny cya sa isang branch, pwede cyang magtry sa iba. Yan ang gawiin dito. Pag family visit visa naman no need na ng rental agreement. Ang requirements lang NOC from his company, QID and Passport,and Attested marriage certificate.

Hi! Does anyone know kung paano ang process ng VISA on arrival for GCC residents? I'm currently in Bahrain and would like to go to Qatar on Eid, but i wanna get the visa on arrival sana. Kaso im kinda scared baka ma-A to A ako. Aside from passport, residence permit, return ticket and document proving your profession, hinahanap pa ba nila ang reservation for the hotel? And may iba pa ba requirements? Hope someone can answer my query. Thank you! :)

I don't know how to attach file eh but I was able to download the list of 201 professions who are eligible for visa upon arrival.

Mga sis kailangan ba talaga ng rental agreement at bank statement para maka sponsor ng wife? Kasi yun asawa Ko nagrerent Lang ng room so yun rental agreement nun nakapangalan doon sa pinoy na nirerentahan Nya.

It  depends sa type of visa. Kapag residence visa, yes need ng rental agreement. Try nya kausapin yung owner baka pwede ipangalan sa kanya, sabihin nya need nya to sponsor you. Pwede naman yun. He needs pay certain amount depends on how much ang hihingiin sa kanya.

Kapag family visit naman which is extendable to 6months, no need for rental agreement na.

Yes sis medyo recession dito sa Doha ngayon pababa na ng pababa kasi ang oil. Oil kasi ang pinaka bread and butter ng Qatar. Although some companies hindi masyadong feel, most of the big and  government companies nagbabawas ng employees. My sister is working in Hamad Hospital. Nagtanggal sila ng mga employees especially seniors. Meron nadin silang memo na magsasalary reconstruct na sila. Try mo parin mag apply. But as far as I know, hindi sila tumatanggap ng direct applicant. Thru agency sila. Try mo mag ask sa Universal Staffing Services jan sa Pinas.

Payo ko lang din, mahirap mag tourist visa ngayon dito. Tourist visa 30 days stay lang yan. So hindi ka agad agad makakahanap ng work sa short period of time. And mahirap ang working visa ngayon dito especially sa mga babae. Usually ang hinahanap ng mga companies dito ngayon is under husband sponsor or kung meron kang sariling visa. Kapag nalaman nila na under tourist visa ka, binabarat nila ang salary, since no choice ka kundi patulan, otherwise, mag eexit ka ulit at gagastos ng malaki to re entry again. So better try mga agency sa Pinas.

Yes sis try mo parin. Try mo pumunta sa Universal Staffing Agency along Makati or Magallanes ata to. Hindi ko sure. Agency yan ng Hamad Hospital. Ask mo rin. Kasi ang alam ko seniors lang ang tinanggal nila. Although hiring sila ng nurse, ang salary ata bumaba compare sa dati. Tapos nagbawas din ng benefits. Hindi nga ngayon advisable ang middle east. Try mo rin western countries like Switzerland or Canada. Kung magaabroad ka na lang din, go for the gold na. hehe

True. Tourist visa also will last for 30days only, after that you need to exit which is supper hassle and mahal. I doubt kung makahanap ka ng work within 30days ngayon. Kung may kamag anak ka dito, pa sponsor ka nalang kahit sagutin mo lahat ng expenses, hindi ganun ka bigat. You're allowed to stay pa for 6 months.

Iyong 77,000 workers eh mostly related sa contruction.

Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup on 2022 so it is a must that they should start building the stadiums to be used for the FIFA. Hence mga construction workers need nila, plumber, electrician, painter, etc.

In terms of long term, mag bu-boom dito ang mga agency or contracting services. Eto na trend kasi dito sa Qatar, they will hire contractor na lang para less gastos (walang health insurance benefits, education assistance, etc.).

Sabi sa Qatar National Vision by 2030, dapat 10% na lang ang expatriate.

^ Sis,

I'm not working in Qatar but the 5 star hotels all have Careers section page in their websites, subukan mo apply dun. Marriott, IHG, Starwood, etc

Sa ganitong way ko nakuha ko current job ko dito sa UAE. Usually they partner up with an agency sa Pinas to help them process the recruitment papers pero it was the GM and Director of HR who interviewed the applicants

In terms of long term, mag bu-boom dito ang mga agency or contracting services. Eto na trend kasi dito sa Qatar, they will hire contractor na lang para less gastos (walang health insurance benefits, education assistance, etc.).

Sabi sa Qatar National Vision by 2030, dapat 10% na lang ang expatriate.

Saklap. :'(

Hi everyone, mag 7 years na'ko dito sa December, but I often go home for annual  vacations (minsan 1 month, merong 3 mos and merong 4 mos, so probably 6 years inside Qatar na din this coming December, nice to meet all of you!

My husband and I is thinking of going to Qatar. How is the environment? Ever since the Saudi and Co break-up, medyo alanganin na kami to come. Anyway, it's just a plan. But how is it there na? Wala bang nagbago - no inflation? They say expensive daw ang Qatar - how is it true? Thanks!

Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4

^Localization meaning prioritizing their citizens? Almost the whole middle east is doing this na pala. So do you think is not advisable to go to Qatar? Sayang naman. We'd like to try it pa naman.
Title: Re: QATAR Thread 4
Post by: Rory_Lorelie_Gilmore on August 23, 2017, 03:30:11 pm
Yes, prioritizing their Citizens. Of course case to case basis pa din naman, kung meron na kayong connections and offer na anticipated, ibang kaso yun. Pero in general, I can say it is not the best time. I am assisting our HR dept. in recruiting Pinoy Storekeeper and Purchaser, halos 50 CV a day natatangap ko, maski sobrang baba ng offer willing na sila tanggapin, yung iba kakadating lang, peor most of them nawalan ng work, natanggal, nagresign etc.

Yes, kasi eventually lahat yan magundergo ng medical exam, either dyan or dito, kung tourist/business visa, sa umpisa hinde, pero kung mag stay longer, eventually dun pa din mauuwe which is magpapamedical, so much better iaddress nyo na issue umpisa palang at icheck kung ano pwede gawin.

i see.. so kahit pala scar lang very particular sila..kala ko kasi strict sila sa lung scars if working visa..papa check na rin siguro ako dito sa pinas para sure pero panigurado meron ako scar lungs which is nakakalungkot..

Post by: Rory_Lorelie_Gilmore on October 29, 2017, 03:50:13 pm
Nagpacheck ka na ba ngayon? Nagpa x ray ka na? Ano ba sabi ng Physician mo? Kasi talagang sensitive lahat ng bansa sa scars ng TB, kaya maski ano mangyari at san ka magpunta bubusisiin yan. Why not iaddress mo na ng maayos, ang natatandaan ko sa kakilala ko kumuha sya Certification na parang magaling na sya talaga. Scar nalang yun. Nagpunta sya sa Qatar and then sa US. Ganyan ang alam ko sa TB, since di nawawala scar. Yung sa 1 friend ko kasi pneumonitis, papunta na sana SG kaso nakita scar, so nagpagaling, pagpunta dito sa Qatar di nadetect scar nya. Probably nawala since nag gamot.

Sis  may mga paraan para ma clear ka sa scar. Pwede ka kumuha ng quantum gold test para accredited test yan sa middle east na nagpapatunay na free of tb ka. Another thing pwede ka uminom ng milk kasi protein sya nakakahelp magrepair ng scar sa lungs.

Pero enough na yung quantum gold test para mapush ang application mo abroad.

Hi Sis, it varies. Kung governement or magaganda at malalaking Companies around 8,000-15,000 QAR lalo na oil and gas. Pero karamihan ng private sectors LALO na ngayon, sobra baba na mag offer, nagrange nalang sa 3,000 - 5,000 ALL IN, swerte na kung free transportation.

Hi, this used to be my issue for the longest time, ang hirap makahanap ng magaling mag layer hehe. But just recently meron na ako nakita na magaling sa Lulu D Ring (2nd floor) na Salon. Malapit kasi sa bahay namin, kaya dun ko preferred, before dumadayo pa ako sa Al Sadd.  ;D Thing is di ko nakuha name or nakuha ko pero nakalimutan ko na. Basta medyo may edad na sya, tancha ko sya pinaka matanda, tapos short hair sya. Sorry kung di masyado helpful, pero pati pag blow dry super galing nya.  :D

3. Totoo ba na mahigpit pagdating sa pananamit ng babae like bawal ang nakashorts?may mga nagshoshorts, pero bilang respeto na lang sa host country, yes medyo mahigpit pa din sila sa pananmit, may mga dress code pa din sa mga public places.

Hi guys! How do you remit money to the PH from Qatar? What bank do you use?

CBQ to BDO, sobrang dali kapag may app ka! no need na pumila sa remittance center. like [textspeak!] sa Villaggio, smh, I always wonder bakit ang daming pumipila doon.
anyway, yung interbank transfer, may charge na 15QRS + 7QRS.
