The Ministry of Interior (MOI) announced the expansion of the time limit to correct the illegal conditions of expatriates, who violate the provisions of Law No. 21 of 2015 regulating the entry, exit and residence of expatriates, to 31 March 2022.
In a statement, the ministry said that this procedure comes within the framework of its keenness to take into account the interests of company owners and expatriate workers to benefit from the 50% reduction in the amount of reconciliation in violations, accordingly. Every violating expatriate or violating applicant must, during the period specified above, submit a request for reconciliation regarding violations of the aforementioned law to the Search and Follow-up Department.
The request can also be submitted to one of the following service centers that receive requests to transfer from one applicant to another (Umm Slal, Al Rayyan, Mesaimeer, Al Wakra, and Umm Suneem), or any of the following service centers that accept reconciliation applications and the issuance and renewal of the Residence Permit (RP) by the same employer (Al Shamal, Al Khor, Al Daayen, Umm Slal, Al Lulu, Onaiza, Souq Waqif, Al Rayyan, Umm Suneem, Al Sheehaniya, Mesaimeer, Al Wakrah and Dukhan).
The ministry called on all categories benefiting from correcting their status, which are expatriates who violate the residence permit (companies) and the expatriates violating work permits, to visit the aforementioned department or centers during the aforementioned period from 1 - 6 pm.
MOI called on the recruits or expatriates to adhere to the specified period, to benefit from the reconciliation to correct their situation to avoid applying legal procedures against them if their situation is not corrected.
