How to Check Labour Contract Online in Qatar (2024)

Doha Guides Team regularly reviews this article to ensure the content is up-to-date and accurate. The last editorial review and update were on 16 January 2024.

Working in Qatar comes with the requirement of signing a labour contract, an important document that outlines the terms and conditions of your employment. This legally binding agreement between you and your employer ensures that both parties understand their rights and responsibilities.

Fortunately, Qatar has streamlined the process of accessing your labour contract through online services provided by the Ministry of Labour. Let’s explore how you can check labour contract online.

What is a Labour Contract?

A labour contract is a crucial document that officially defines your employment terms in Qatar. It covers essential details, including your job title, contract period, probation, salary, allowances, flight ticket, and other important aspects of your job.

The contract also outlines the terms and conditions of the employment relationship and establishes the rights and responsibilities of employer and worker during the course of employment.

Just like employers, employees have the right to ensure that the contract’s conditions are being followed.

Since August 2023, accessing the labour contract has become even more important, as applying for a Family Residence Visa requires validating applicant’s educational certificates through labour contract.

The Qatar government has made significant efforts to modernize and simplify the process of accessing and verifying labour contracts online. These improvements benefit both employees and employers by enhancing transparency and reducing the need for in-person visits to government offices.

Key Information in Your Labour Contract

Below are some key points regarding your employment contract in Qatar:

  • Standard Format: Qatar Labour Law has clearly outlined the requirements of a labour contract. All employers are required to include these details in the contract.
  • Authentication: Your employment contract must be written and authenticated by Ministry of Labour. It should be available in both English and Arabic languages for the convenience of immigrants.
  • Three Copies: Three original copies of your contract will be prepared: one for you, one for your employer, and one retained by the Ministry of Labour for transparency and compliance.

The Digital Authentication System

In June 2020, Ministry of Labour (then MADLSA) introduced the Digital Authentication System for a Multi-lingual Employment Contract. This initiative aims to offer a seamless and digital way to authenticate employment contracts in companies, further enhancing the efficiency and transparency of labour contract processes in Qatar.

With the ease of online access, checking your labour contract in Qatar has become a hassle-free process.

Whether you’re a new employee looking to verify your contract or a long-time worker curious about its details, these online services make it convenient for you to access your employment terms whenever you need them.

However, after receiving the missing document for my wife’s application, I received an email stating that her application status is “UNDER PROCESS,” but the status on the application is “Missing Document.” I am looking for an option to re-upload the document, but it is not visible on the application. Can you please advise me on the cause of this issue?
