In October 2018, major news was broken, which is to change the Qatar Exit Permit System. Actually, they lift the ban on the exit permit. A private company only can list 5% of workers whose permission is required, but the rest are allowed to go home WITHOUT ANY PERMISSION!
Something Amazing – isn’t it?
But it is highly recommended that you need to check your QID status. I have explained below how one can easily check online on your mobile or computer laptop.

Who Needs to Check Exit Permit
Everyone needs to check before buying a ticket and leaving for the airport as 5% of each company’s workers are to put on a ban or need permission before leaving from his/her sponsor.
- A personal worker Like Driver, Home Servant, Seamen, Shepherd, Farmer, etc
- Government Job Workers
- Accountants if sponsor put them in 5%
- A Visa holder who doesn’t have QID
- If your QID is under process, then you need to take permission.
- If Iqama is expired, then renew it or cancel to go home.
- If any complaint like a criminal act against you, then you need to clear to go home.

Still, before going home, take proper permission all the time from your superiors, or else they may ban you. Otherwise, your Iqama should be cancelled to get a new via in any other company.
