In September, the Qatari government amended the country's residency law, which will allow most migrant workers to exit the country without obtaining permission from their employer. An international trade union announced on Monday, October 8, that the decision to lift the exit permit system would take effect at the end of October.
Qatar hosts around 2 million migrant workers, most of whom are currently working on significant infrastructure projects for the 2022 Soccer World Cup.
Individuals are advised to contact their nearest Qatari consulate for further details.
