Capital & Largest city - Doha

Languages - Arabic (official), English

Climate - Doha has a hot desert climate , Summer is very long, from May to September, when its average high temperatures surpass 38 °C and often approach 50 °C.

Living in Qatar - There are few major concerns when it comes to safety in Qatar, and the country remains an attractive destination for expats. As a result of the fossil fuel boom, as well as the relatively liberal policies established under former Emir Hamad bin Khalif Al Thani, Qatar now hosts regiments of Commonwealth and South Asian expats. Increasing numbers of foreigners are moving to Qatar to work hard, save money in the tax-free environment, and maintain a standard of living and wealth relatively similar to that of Western Europe. While there are plenty of work opportunities for expats interested in employment in the petrochemical sector, Qatar is also working to increase foreign investment in non-energy sectors, such as IT, construction, and – much like Dubai – tourism.

With its successful 2022 World Cup bid, the nation has also been spending vast amounts to improve infrastructure. As a result, it’s likely that more manpower will be required to continue transforming Doha, the capital city often described as half building site, half park, into something whole

Indian Community - The community of Indians in Qatar includes Indian expatriates in Qatar, as well as people born in Qatar of Indian origin. The Indian population in the country has gone beyond 500,000.

With the economic boom being witnessed in Gulf nations for the next ten years, the growing demand in the construction sector will continue and many Indian workers will be recruited to serve in the labour market and as engineers.[2] A vast majority of the Indians in Qatar work as contract labourers in the booming construction industry.[3] Apart from those working in the construction sector, Indians are also employed in all kinds of jobs such as welders, fabricators, fitters, engineers and doctors as many organizations in the country require people with various skill levels.

More and more Indian students in Qatar, especially Doha, are opting for distance education programmes after passing their higher secondary examinations. After clearing their Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 exams, the students are making a beeline for the various distance education programmes offered by a number of Indian universities in Qatar.
