As of Sunday, 16 August 2020, the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MADLSA) will launch two new electronic services on its website, and mobile app - Amerni.

These services will benefit residents who wish to issue a new work permit or renew, cancel and extract a replacement for a lost one. This step comes within the framework of the Ministry's keenness to provide its services online and facilitate residents processing and following up the services remotely.

The two new online services

The following are the two new electronic services being offered by MADLSA:

1. Requesting for a work permit (issuance of a work card) for those who are on the residency of their relatives

      The importance of offering a work permit application service (issuing a work card) is providing a digital alternative that facilitates the application process electronically, especially if the person concerned is not brought in to Qatar by the employer and wants to contract with it for regular and main professions with the attachment of supporting documents, especially for sub-professions in accordance with the terms and conditions.

      2. Changing the profession on the Qatar ID

      The applicant wanting to change the profession (or change the job title) on the Qatar ID card can also do so through the party concerned or the authorised signatory by attaching the required documents

      Online services available on the website and Amerni app

      Both of the above electronic services will be available through the ministry’s website and the Amerni application available on smart devices. Download the Amerni now:

      Offering these services is considered a continuation of the ministry’s role in providing various electronic services to individuals and companies with the aim of facilitating the use of various services, and completing the implementation of the ministry’s plan to provide digital alternatives to the public without the need to visit government service complexes.
