Unhappy Work Agreement for British Nationals in Qatar

Hello everyone!

Hope you all are doing great. I am a British citizen, currently in Doha. This is the first time I've been in Qatar. Ive got few civil engineering job interviews coming up in next two weeks. I've got a very important stuff to clarify guys and I really appreciate if anyone of you could give me some good adivce on this. Alright, here we go....

IF I GOT HIRED BY AN ENGINEERING COMPANY, WOULD I HAVE TO SIGN FOR 'MINIMUM X YEARS' CONTRACT?

PS: I met few Indian and Sri Lanan guys and they freaked me out saying..I'll have to sign at least two years contract, company will hold my passport with them, I can't quit the job and even if I do then I am not allowed to re-enter Qatar for two years blah blah blah...

Cheers!

Don't know the answer to that but I've looking around for a change and was looking in that neck of the woods so would be interested in the answer.

What type of engineering do you do?

Nope, currently in Canada but time for a change just not sure where. Infrastucture engineering, by the way.

Cool! Think about Dubai. Very good pay + life style (I wouldn't compare it with Europe but not bad)....
