Default Anyone managed to get a Qatar Petroleum work visa lately?

I understand Qatar immigration authorities are not issuing work visas just yet but *might* be doing so in certain cases eg for expats working for state owned companies such as QP. Anyone managed to get one in the present circumstances?

Reason for asking is that I was offered a role with QP in July through SPIE Oil and Gas in Doha, they (agency) applied for my Qatar work visa last month (Oct) and have submitted a letter from QP as well to support the application. However the agency are unable to give me any time frame and are saying they could receive my work visa anytime. I suspect its a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?" but thought I'd ask anyway..

Cheers.

Looks like new visas are starting to be processed (but expect quite a backlog):
