From 1 October 2018 onwards, there will be a new procedure to renew vehicles registration (Istimara) for companies and institutions.

The General Directorate of Traffic announced that, starting next month, companies and institutions would be able to renew their vehicles registration only through Metrash2 and MoIQatar E-Services portal. They would not be able to do it at the traffic counters at the Fahes centres anymore.

In a video posted on the traffic department's official account, First Lieutenant Turki Shadid Al-Kaabi, from the Licensing Affairs Department at the General Directorate of Traffic, stated that vehicles would need to clear the Fahes inspection and pay the insurance before registering online.

There is an online link between Fahes and all insurance companies operating in Qatar, in cooperation with Qatar Central Bank using the traffic department data.

Once the vehicle details are entered in Metrash, there are two green lights for Fahes inspection and insurance. If both the lights are green, you can proceed to make the payment.

This facility can be availed by individuals also and they can get their registration card delivered at home by Q-Post. This comes in handy especially for new vehicles as they don't need to clear the inspection for three years.
