Pakistanis seeking Overseas employments get a good news
ISLAMABAD - Consul General of Qatar Mishal Muhammad Ali Al Ansari has said that two Qatari visa centers were already operational in Karachi and Islamabad while two more such centers will also be established in Peshawar and Lahore in future for processing visas of mostly the skilled and semi-skilled labors.
Speaking at a meeting during his visit to the Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry, he said, “Around 150,000 Pakistanis are living in Qatar as compared to around 40,000 Pakistani expats just four years ago.”
President KCCI Agha Shahab Ahmed Khan, Senior Vice President Arshad Ismail, Vice President Shahid Ismail and KCCI Managing Committee members were also present at the meeting. Qatari Envoy further stated that Qatar and Pakistan have been enjoying very old and strong relations since many decades.
“We have initiated visa on arrival service for all Pakistanis while Qataris were also benefiting from a similar visa on arrival facility during their visit to Pakistan. Pakistan is exporting fruits, vegetables, fishes, rice, minerals, steel and cement to Qatar and is one of the fastest growing partners of Qatar in the region.”
He said, “We’ve opened up the country and are looking for partners from all over the world. We’ve also eased the restrictions and regulations for anyone who wants to do business in Qatar.
There are numerous sectors where no local Qatari partner is required anymore while Qatari Banks are also fully assisting such foreign investors.”
