Hiring contractors in Qatar can be a rollercoaster

Hiring contractors in Qatar can be complicated for foreign companies unfamiliar with Qatari tax and labor laws. Unlike many countries, Qatari law doesn’t meaningfully distinguish between contractors and employees. Instead, the distinction is primarily based on whether the worker is a citizen of Qatar or a Gulf Cooperation Council country. If they’re not a Qatari citizen, you’ll need to sponsor their work visa, even as an independent contractor. There’s a lot to keep up with when hiring contractors in Qatar, but it doesn’t have to be complex: With Rippling, you can grow your global team quickly while maintaining compliance.
