Qatar’s Ministry of Labour provides secondment services online

Qataris can now enjoy easier and more convenient services online when it comes to requesting a secondment work permit. This also applies to those who are availing of an online package to renew a secondment work permit as well.

Thanks to the Ministry of Labour (MoL), a fresh set of e-services can now be easily accessed on the ministry’s digital platform. When it comes to submitting a request to acquire a secondment work permit, employees that are already registered with an establishment will be able to secure a proper secondment work permit in order for him or her to work either full-time or part-time with a temporary employer. This comes simultaneously while they are staying with their current establishment as well.

As such, the new establishment will be able to request the secondment work permit online. The current employer will also be notified about the request. The Labour Relations Department will attest the permit afterwards, and when it’s approved, it will be issued to both employers online.

Note that the secondment data must be indicated properly, which includes the duration of the secondment work as well as the type of secondment.

This fully digital and paperless service will allow applicants to reduce or eliminate the need to visit the offices of the ministry physically. Terms and conditions must be adhered to, of course, which include the establishment being subjected to the provisions of Labour Law No 14 of 2004. Of course, the employer registration should be valid without any violations. The secondment period also isn’t allowed to go over six months.

All these are in line with the Ministry of Labor’s continuing efforts to improve, upgrade and digitise services for convenience and efficiency. Published services must be of high quality as well, and made in coordination with a wide variety of establishments. Currently, there is a total of 20 e-services that have already been developed and released by the Ministry of Labour these last four months.
