Domestic workers can authorise employers to submit National Address application

May 18, 2020

Simplifying the National Address registration process for domestic workers, the Ministry of Interior said yesterday that they can authorise their employers to submit their application after filling and signing it.

“Domestic workers can register their national address using the form for registering domestic workers and authorizing their employer to submit the application to the competent authorities after filling it out and signing it by the worker,” the Ministry of Interior said on its official twitter account.

It also said that the “required data for national address include residence address, mobile and landline numbers, email address and work address.”

The Ministry added: “This information will be used to complete your transactions with governmental and non-governmental agencies.”

The registration for National Address started on January 27, 2020 and will continue until July 26. Every applicant is responsible for giving the correct information and there is QR10,000 fine for giving false information. The fine also applies for not registering during the six-month period, which ends on July 26. The fine can be reconciled to QR5,000 before reaching the court.

The National Address came within the framework of the strategic development of e-governance and the completion of the legislative structure necessary for e-government transactions and the transition from the descriptive address to the digital address.

So far, over one million people in Qatar have registered themselves in the National Address. About its importance, the Ministry said that “National Address is a paradigm shift in quick delivery of services and ensures prompt conduct of judicial procedures.”

It will serve many government entities such as the Ministry of Municipality and Environment; the Ministry of Justice; the Supreme Judiciary Council and Planning and Statistics Authority, a senior official had said earlier.
