May 2, 2023 2:06 pm

In recent years, Qatar’s aggressive development has lured in people from all over the world for various reasons. Whether it’s for work or leisure, the country has a lot to offer. For starters, there’s absolutely NO tax on purchasing a real estate property, and no age limit to acquire residency for your family members.

Obtain Residency in Qatar

To obtain residency through real estate investment, it would have to be by way of the Qatar Residence Permit Program (QRP), which allows foreigners to obtain Permanent Residency by purchasing a physical property in Qatar.

There are generally two primary investment options available under the QRP;

Option 1) An investment worth at least $200,000 (approximately 728,000 Qatari Riyals).

Option 2) Investing at least 1 million USD (approximately 3,650,000 Qatari Riyals) where you get the rolling benefits of free education for your kids, medical health care at Hammad hospital for your Family, and you gain the right to establish your own business in Qatar).

The following are the general steps to obtain residency through real estate investment in Qatar:

1. You must be at least 18 years old, have a valid passport, a police clearance from your home country, and a document of your purchased property (which could either be its SPA (Sales Purchasing Agreement) or the Title Deed – which vary depending on the type of investment you choose).

2. Submit your application: Once you have chosen your investment option, you will need to submit your application to the Ministry of Interior. You will need to provide proof of your investment (the property deed or SPA) along with other required documents.

3. Receive your residency permit: If and when your application is approved, you will receive your residency permit, which will allow you to live and work in Qatar permanently.
