Zulfikar Bukhari—the Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development informed that the government is all ready to acquire the goal of filling 100,000 job vacancies in Qatar, which is in accordance with the vision of the prime minister of providing employment opportunities within and outside the nation.
During the inauguration ceremony of the very first Qatari Visa Facilitation Centre located in the federal capital at the G-6 sector with the Ambassador of Qatar to Pakistan—Saqar Bin Mubarak, he said that the government has completed another promise of providing jobs to nearly 100,000 youth in Qatar.
He informed that Pakistan has become the 8th nation to have a Qatari Visa Facilitation Centre for making the visa processing of workers easier. The government is also inclined to exporting more manpower to other nations.
Bukhari expressed hope that this centre would make sure that the workers’ rights are protected by doing verification of contracts, showing mutual understanding between both the parties.
He said that increased job opportunities in Qatar for manpower from Pakistan would be leading way for making the national economy much stronger and active.
He also added that the visa facilitation centre would not just bring numbers of returning workers but would also help in the documents processing of the job seekers from Pakistan.
The skilled labour force from Pakistan would also be employed in the FIFA 2022 World Cup and it would also be used in the other significant projects like the construction ventures in Qatar.
He indicated that talks are underway with the Qatari officials to adjust the skilled labour force that is coming back from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Qatar.
On the occasion, the Qatari ambassador said that previously visa processing was being done by the Qatari government but now the applicants could get their visas processed and approved via this centre.
