Expat exploits in Qatar

Waiting patiently

It’s now been three weeks since the police clearance checking process started in Qatar. I can’t find any official online information on what the process entails. They should already have a copy of my British police certificate which says that there is “no trace” that I have a criminal record.

I believe that as well as checking that I have no past criminal activity that the job I have been offered could not be done by a Qatari national. I am pretty confident there will be nobody in Qatar who has 14 years experience managing cultural heritage websites preceded by even longer managing museums and collections.

However reading the various blogs and forums, it appears that I could be in for a long wait.
