Good news for Qatar residents
In a new move, Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) has made it easier for Qatari residents to apply for family visit visas.
They can now do it online via the MoI’s website or Metrash2 service, reported Qatar Tribune.
The move is a part of the MoI’s efforts to boost e-services for the public.
Brigadier General Mohamed Ahmed Al Ateeq, Director General of Passports, said the new service would ass to the various e-services provided by MoI, represented by the General Directorate of Passports.
“This important step is aimed at changing the application of family visit visas from the paper system to electronic system through the services of the MoI,” he said.
“The applicant can upload all required documents in the allocated boxes. The user can then track the status of requests and query and pay the fees electronically through the same application,” added Al Ateeq.
He said applicants can apply through Metrash2 by choosing the services of MoI and submitting requests for family visit electronically. The applicant can fill required data and then attach documents supporting the request to the system from any place.
In the event of any deficiencies in the documents or the attached picture, the applicant is immediately alerted to rectify the error.
He said the electronic service can be used to apply for family visas including for father, mother, wife, children or relatives.
