How to View Labor Recruitment Application Status and Labor Statistics in Qatar

To make sure that businesses operate in accordance with proper rules and regulations in the State of Qatar, there is a wide variety of online services that both business owners and individuals can easily have access to for their own official needs. From applying for different business permits to maintaining and updating commercial records, these online services aim to facilitate processes so that day-to-day operations can go more smoothly and more efficiently.

For instance, business owners may request for the status of their labor recruitment processes if they have requested hiring employees from abroad. These applications can be duly filled and updated online at any given point in time.

For companies and employers, you may check your status of your labor recruitment application by simply loading the online application. Then, input the application number as well as the year of application. Once you have supplied the necessary information, you can now conduct a search based on those parameters.

Should the application be active, then you will be able to see the details of the application on the following page. Afterward, you can check for information such as the application ID, the application date, the establishment ID of your company, and even the number of workers requested. You can check the status of your application here.

If the application is approved, you can also choose to have the details of the request printed for each profession. This is also grouped by VP numbers returned from the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA), along with the necessary barcode representation.

In line with this, you may also view labor statistics if you want to. If you are a business owner who employs foreign workers at your establishment, you may use the online system of Hukoomi to check for labor statistics. The MADLSA also provides information on the following details:

  • Total number of workers that are currently employed in the company
  • Number of work permits allowed
  • Number of work permits (both the ones that are being used and those that are still remaining)
  • Nationality of workers
  • Gender of workers
  • VP number as well as the corresponding expiration date
  • Application number and year

Bonus tip: users may also obtain and print a “To Whom It May Concern” certificate should they wish to prove that they are unemployed. Simply input the QID number and your birth date to search and print for the certificate.
