MOI announces overhaul of Qatar ID system

In an effort to streamline Qatar’s visa system for expats, the Ministry of Interior today announced a series of measures that puts more emphasis on identity cards while minimizing the use of passports for identification.

Officials said that beginning June 15, new residents and those renewing their residency permits (RPs) would no longer need to have stickers in their passports explaining their visa details.

Instead, residents will be given new ID cards, which will have more information on them than the existing ones – including an individual’s home address.
