The Airport Passports Department has announced that the leave notification (exit permit) for expatriates and citizens, who require it, will be issued without any fees and the process will be paperless.
It will be conducted through Metrash 2 and the webistes of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) and Hukoomi , as part of MoI's efforts to ease travel procedures for both expatriates and citizens.
Lieutenant Colonel Nasser Jabir al-Malki, head of the Travel Permits Section of Airport Passports Department, said that the service required by expatriates and minor Qataris would be provided electronically without any fees or the need to present print-out of the document to the Immigration authorities.
"Through Metrash 2, MoI website or Hukoomi website, the recruiter can enter the data of the expatriate worker on the designated form alongside his data or the authorized signatory and then click send. The online application will be approved and the worker can depart the country immediately," information posted on the ministry's website said. "Also, Qataris can fill in the designated form for their minors in the same way to get an exit permit."
