      Hi Kimberly, Usually it is not certified. If it is urgent, you can call 109 to check or try approaching any MOI Service Center.

  1. Hi DG,
    Me and my daughter are both working here in Qatar, I have my own flat provided by my company. If my daughter live and stay with me instead of living in her company provided accommodation which is a shared room, can she use my address as her national / home address registered in her Metrash2?

  2. Qatar National Address Certificate – According to the law in Qatar – the national address certificate consists of data of an individual’s personal information as well as their home and work address in Qatar and home address of their country of origin. The National Address form includes the following as well: Home address. Fixed phone number and mobile number.
    Question: will it be a violation of Qatar Law 13 of 2016 related to the protection of personal data if this self Qatar National Address certificate is shared with non-Qatar Bank located outside Qatar as a proof of self residential Address to meet bank’s requirement. Since the certificate is having Public Security stamp at the bottom side, I want to be sure before sharing this certificate outside Qatar.
    Appreciate your kind advise on this matter.

      Hi Aloke, Qatar Law 13 of 2016 is about someone else sharing your personal data. As per law, your data can only be shared with your consent. In this case, you are willingly sharing this with a bank, which is alright.
