I'm living in Doha, and wanting to bring with me over the counter medication just to have in the med cabinet if required. I can't find any information or a list of medications that are perhaps prohibited into the Country. I'd rather find out first instead of being stopped at the airport. None of the medication is prescribed. A list of what I am bringing is: Panamax 200 tablets of paracetamol (panadol) Hydralyte - 24 satchels Zovirax cold sore cream Vitamic C tablets 500 tablets (contains Ascorbic acid, sodum ascorbate) Buscopan 40 tablets (hyoscine, butylbromide) Gavison 32 tablets (contains sodium alginate, bicarbonate and calcium caronate) Cold and Flu tablets 48 tablets (paracetamol, codeine phosphate, phenlephrine hydrochloride) Claratyne 24 tablets (contains Loratadine) Nurofen 48 tablets (contains ibuprofen) Dimetap nose spray (oxymetazoline hydrichloride) Lemsip Max cold and flu drink (contains paracetemol, phenylephrine hydrochloride, guaiphenesin) Might be a bit overboard, but I am staying there for a while so just wanting to stock up on what I need rather than running around. :) Thanks.

I am about to take a job in Qatar and I've been told that we're not likely to get a family visa "straight away" I'm not immediately concerned as my wife and son can come on a visitors visa. What I am concerned about is that without the family visa I cannot get my son into any sort of pre - schooling or groups. Or can I? Has anyone else had this problem? Are there any pre - schools which "accept" entrants without the family visa?

I will relocate to Qatar. Could someone give me advice (or links etc) on regulations for moving these - used and for personal use - items to Qatar: - books - computer-hardware (printer, laptop, scanner, screen) - external harddrives - wooden shelves (IKEA IVAR) Will there be any problems to relocate with these items? Are there any other areas of household items that make problems? 2nd question: how "precise" has the inventory list to be. Is it like - "box of office items, pens, pencils" or like - "box, containing 2 pens, 1 penicl, 3 rubbers" Any help is apreciated! Christopher

Expat Report Culture Shock in Doha, Qatar was published
Culture-Shock-in-Doha
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Relax when entering a new culture and don't bring expectations that everything will work the way you are used to. Be open to trying new things... leave your personal "baggage" at home...I've coined a new phrase since living abroad based on my experience and watching those around me adjust..."is it new or is it you!"
