Qatar scraps exit visa system: Indians in Gulf countries
1 of 8
The government of Qatar has amended its controversial exit visa policy and now allows expat workers to leave the country without an approval from their employers. Under the new law, employers will no longer have the power to deny exit permits to most of their workers, though they will retain this right for 5% of their workforce. The move to lift the controversial exit visa system comes in the run up to 2022 soccer World Cup, which will be hosted by Qatar.
