How to Obtain Naturalization in Qatar

Save

Naturalization is the act of gaining citizenship by residing in a country for a specific period. Usually this also includes meeting certain requirements, such as knowing the local language. In Qatar, you can obtain citizenship through naturalization. Qatar is an Arab country, which shares a border with Saudi Arabia. If you become a citizen of Qatar, know that the country does not recognize dual citizenship. If you do not renounce your current citizenship, you will lose your Qatari citizenship.

  • Move to Qatar and make the country your permanent residence. To do so, you need a residence visa, which requires an employment contract with a company in Qatar. Qatari residence visas are valid for three year periods and can be renewed. It is customary for your Qatari employer to take care of all the paperwork and fees for your residence visa.

  • Live in Qatar for a minimum of 15 years, if you are an Arab national of another Arab country, or for 20 years if you are a national of another country.

  • Demonstrate proficiency in the Arabic language. Typically this is shown in the form of a language exam, which is given by the government.

  • Show proof of financial resources and good character. Bank statements and asset information typically suffice for financial resource proof. For good character, you can get a certificate from the FBI, if you are American or Interpol if you are European. A certificate of good character shows that you do not have a criminal record in your country. All documents must be translated into Arabic and must accompany the original.
