Hello everyone. This is my 1st post on this forum.
My query is that I am considering moving over to Qatar with my wife, as I got a job offer from a multi-national organisation in Doha. As my wife is already 4 months pregnant, I need to know if it is a wise move to come to Qatar and my wife delivering our child here in Qatar? Also, how long does it usually takes to get the visa for Qatar for me and my wife? The company in Qatar are handling all the visa process, and will probably provide me with entry work visa first and my wife a tourist visa. After arriving in Qatar, I need to change my visa to long-term work visa and then sponsor my wife, and get her family visa.
Can anyone please tell me how long it takes to get the entry work visa to Qatar? Since Qatar do not have embassy here in Australia, the UAE embassy will certify my documents. How much will that complicate the visa in terms of processing times? I will appreciate all your answers & suggestions, particularly from any Australians have move from Australia to Qatar.
