Re: Qatar Police Clearance

The only options I know are to request through the Metrash2 app (You'd need to still have a valid residents permit for this). Or apply directly at the Criminal Evidence Investigation Department off...

Re: Qatar win 2019 AFC

Re: Sin Tax in Qatar

Looks like bar prices haven't risen as much as expected. The Rose and Thistle has said there's an average increase to drink prices of 20%. The Belgium cafe is absorbing the cost (for now). Kempinski...
