No NOC needed for taking up a new job?

I have informed my company about my plan to resign. My employment contract was for fi ve years of which I have completed two. Is there a restriction on getting a new visa? Do I need a no-objection certifi cate from my employer?

Subject to the type of employment contract (limited or unlimited) and its termination, the person will be able to return to Qatar to take up employment immediately after being granted a new visa in case of cancellation of residency permit. As per the prevailing entry, exit and residence law, there is no requirement of a no-objection certifi cate from the previous employer for a former resident to take up a new job in Qatar. The law abolished the earlier twoyear ban on expatriates who want to come back to the country on a new visa. gulf times
