Ministry of labor unveils digital service work permit occupation amendments employers doha

The Ministry of Labour has unveiled a digital service for amending occupations under a general permit, allowing employers to apply for job changes on behalf of their employees. This process can now be processed without requiring a visit to the Ministry's main office or branch locations.

The launch of the new services aligns with the Ministry of Labour's strategy to develop the digital infrastructure for the labor sector in a way that contributes to facilitating and streamlining the services provided to those dealing with the Ministry.

The new service allows employers to modify the occupations/ professions of their employees with a valid work permit and to inquire about the status of their application, in addition to allowing a direct progression to the attestation system for contracts between the employer and the employee and export information about the modified occupation to the Ministry of Interior.

The Ministry of Labour aims to streamline processes by eliminating the necessity of visiting the Ministry's main or service offices and submitting physical paperwork. They are doing this by offering comprehensive online services that are easily accessible to everyone in the labor market interacting with the Ministry.

The Digital Transformation Team within the Ministry of Labour focuses on enhancing and updating electronic services using the "Agile" engineering approach. This method allows for the rollout of new services and regular updates every month.​
