Qatar’s Legal Framework of Migration No.2/2016

  • Maysa Zahra
Publisher: Gulf Research Center
Date of Publication: Apr 2016
Publications Categories: Research Papers & Analysis


Over the last decade, Qatar has significantly revised its legal framework in a number of areas that are relevant to the issue of migration. The revision has led to the establishment of rules and regulations that better conform to international standards in areas such as labour rights and human trafficking. However, Qatar’s controversial kefala (sponsorship) system is still a source of concern. This note offers researchers a succinct outline and summary of Qatar’s legal framework on migration. The system of migration-related legislation in the State of Qatar includes the Constitution, international treaties concluded, national laws and by-laws.
