Education Documents for Qatar

If you are planning to move to Qatar for an expat stint, you may need to get your qualifications attested for use in Qatar.

This will require the documents to be notarised by a Public Notary, authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and then attested by the Qatar Embassy.

One thing you need to be aware of is that the Qatar Embassy will not attest education documents that have been awarded for by an education organisation which have been carried out online. Any application for attestation of documents must be accompanied with a letter (on the letterhead of the education organisation’s letterhead) confirming that the course was not carried out online. Without such a letter, the Qatar Embassy will simply not attest the documents.

So if you have carried out an online course it will not be recognised in Qatar. If you have carried out a course on campus, you will need a letter from the education organisation confirming that the course was not carried out online.
