Marawanino posted Residence Visa Drug Test? on the Qatar forum on April 17, 2014:
Greetings, My friend recently got this job offer in Qatar and so far he's going. However he has taken a fair amount of drugs and I am personally worried because i know Qatar has some very very strict drug laws. Question is, when you are applying for your work permit/Residence visa you have to do a medical checkup which includes a blood test. Do they only for HIV or do they test for drugs as well during the process? Have there been any cases of expats running into trouble when they do a regular blood test and the hospital runs a drug test behind his back,? That'd be a bummer seriously Best regards.

I have received a contract from a job in Doha as health and safety manager. They are offering 26,000 of their local money with fully furnished accommodation, and also paying my kids education. Is it a good offer to accept? Can any one recommend a good British school in Doha for me?

Hi, Could anybody advise me on the best method of posting letters or small parcels from Doha to the UK please? We used DHL last time due to lack of alternatives and they charged us a small fortune so any help would be greatly appreciated!! Many thanks in advance, Patrick

There are a few post offices around. Qatar Postal Services. I posted books to the UK on speed post yesterday. They should arrive in 3 days. Cost me 85QR. Apart from the main PO on the Corniche there is one opposite FFC just off Al Sharmal. There is also one at North Duhail close to the Giant Hypermarket. Good luck
