Working and living in Qatar – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Qatar requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Qatari expat life. Living abroad in Qatar raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Qatar?ʺ, ʺCan our children attend a Montessori school in Qatar?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Doha should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Qatari municipality in Al-Khor?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Qatar is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Qatar aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Qatar. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from sports and leisure, to local infrastructure or education and children, up to local organisations & companies. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺIs there an Indian business or social network in the capital?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Qatar, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Greece to living in Sweden.
