Qatar’s new sponsorship law is likely to be issued either this year or next year, according to a senior official at the Ministry of Interior.
This is the first time an official source is disclosing the probable time on the issuance of the much-awaited sponsorship law.
In an interview to an Arabic daily, Brigadier Nasser Mohammed Al Sayed, Director, Research and Follow-up Department at the ministry, said the issuance of the law can be expected in 2014 or 2015.
“There are legislative challenges we have to address ahead of issuing the law. After holding discussions at various levels, including Qatar Chamber and Advisory Council, the proposal has to undergo strict legal process,” he said.
“This is a very important law that is going to change the existing employer-employee relationship in the country. We do not want to issue it in a hurry to find loopholes in the law tomorrow,” he added.
