He reiterated his call to all citizens, residents and legal persons who have not yet registered to speed up registration, pointing out that the required data are the housing address, fixed and mobile telephone number, e-mail address, employer address for government and private sector workers, and permanent address abroad, if any. He pointed out that under-18 son is automatically registered when the father registers his data.
According to the Law No. 24 of 2017 on the National Address, every citizen and resident in the country is obliged to register a permanent national address with the official authorities in Qatar through the Metrash 2 before 26 July 2020, otherwise they will have to pay a fine.
