Expatriates stranded on holiday in the country due to coronavirus applied to return to Qatar on the ‘Qatar Portal’ website. The Bangladesh Embassy in Doha has issued a notification urging the expatriates to provide the information of the rejected expatriates in the mail or Facebook Messenger of the Doha Embassy.

Although Bangladesh is not on the list of 40 low-risk countries, more than 14,000 stranded expatriates leave have been asked to apply through the ‘Qatar Portal’ website on condition.

The expatriates who have not yet applied to return to Qatar are urged to contact the employer or the company and apply immediately, said Counselor of the Bangladesh Embassy Dr. Mohammad Mustafizur Rahman.

Copies of application, Qatar ID copy, ID number, name and occupation, company name, address and contact number, applicant’s Bangladeshi contact number— have to be mailed to Doha Embassy’s mail: [email protected] or text at facebook messenger of Embassy of Bangladesh, Doha.

Expatriate Bangladeshis are contributing to the development of Qatar on the one hand and playing an important role in the economy of Bangladesh on the other.

Bangladeshis expressed the view that the two countries would benefit mutually by strengthening bilateral trade and investment relations between Bangladesh and Qatar.

Expatriate and community leaders think such an initiative is right. In the meantime, one and a half thousand expatriates have returned. The rest have not yet been allowed to leave.
