    Act No. 14, 1992, to regulate the operation of labour-importing agencies

    Adoption: 1992-08-11 | Date of entry into force: 1992-09-20 | QAT-1992-L-31288

    Only duly licensed agents are now permitted to bring foreign workers into Qatar. However, subject to special permission from the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Housing, an employer can import migrant labour himself strictly to meet his own needs. People who want to bring over domestic servants for their own household are exempt from this formality. The Act prescribes the conditions that labour-importing agents must meet to qualify for a license (minimum age of 21, bank guaranty, etc) and provides for inspection of their books and premises. Such agents are strictly forbidden to charge migrant job-seekers a fee for their placement. Travel costs and the agency commission must be paid by the employer on whose behalf the agency imports foreign labour. All existing labour-importing agencies must comply with the provisions of the Act by 19 March 1993.
