The Ministry of Interior has decided to not charge a fee for the cancellation of residency permits (RPs) of expatriates.

The ministry used to charge QAR60 as RP cancellation charges. Naturally, no fee will be charged for cancelling the RP of deceased expatriates as well.

The State Cabinet yesterday approved a draft decision of the Ministry of Interior to amend certain provisions of its Decision (No. 19 of 2007) organising the fees for the services provided by the Ministry, including some certificates it issues, reports Qatar News Agency (QNA).
