Wow

...permanent residency ID holders will receive the same treatment as Qataris in education and healthcare in public institutions and will be given priority, after locals, in holding public military and civil jobs.
“In addition, holders of that ID have the right to own property and engage in some commercial businesses without the need to have a Qatari partner, in line with the executive decisions that will be issued by the cabinet according to the provisions of the law,”...

Could be attractive to lots of people. Think - Somalia, Pakistan, Burkina Faso, The Maldives, Nigeria, Libya.

Maybe even for those from Barnsley, Essex, Coatbridge ?

You can imagine old Barry pushing through ques declaring loudly he's a local and all others should bow down...

Screw that though, I'd rather get one in a commonwealth country.

Default Re: Permanent residency

Read it carefully.

People with Qatari mothers will qualify for the permanent residency. Fair enough. That means they're already Muslims and mostly with fathers from other GCC countries.

Those with special offerings to Qatar can qualify for the permanent residency. That means extraordinarily special candidates.

Altogether, maybe a handful of people might get the permanent residency.

In other words, irrelevant for 99.99% of expats.

The dude who founded Modern Bakeries in the UAE isn't Emirati but was given citizenship by the ruler of Sharjah.

I imagine something similar will be the case for Qatar. A handful of prominent people who are Qatari in all but name may get the residency.

It's just a lot of noise.

It's a secret hope that I'll somehow do something that results in me being deported. In the perfect scenario it's something that I'm clearly not at fault but need to leave and the company recognises it and just transfers me home.

However, I will give Qatar credit where it's due. I get no ends of free upgrade to business on Qatar Airways.

It'll be like the recent changes to the Exit Permit system and the NOC to change Employers. Lots of publicity, but no material difference.
