Labor Ministry: Most Qatar-based maid recruitment agencies still subpar, but improving



The majority of Qatar’s 135 maid recruitment agencies continue to receive poor evaluations from Qatar’s Ministry of Labor, but more firms this year have obtained an “A” grade.

According to MOL’s annual classification system, some 79 domestic help agencies here have received the lowest rating of “C,” the Peninsula reports. That’s compared to 86 last year.

Ten agencies also lost their licenses for labor violations, the newspaper continues. But firms are allowed to challenge the rankings if they find them unfair.

Some 17 firms received “A” evaluations – up from eight last year. And finally, 36 agencies got a “B,” or “second-rate,” ranking from the MOL, compared to 27 last year.

Qatar Tribune reports that the list of the top-rated agencies, which received 10 free maid visas each, include:

Ahram Centre for Manpower Recruitment, Katara Manpower, Al Aseel, Tasaheel, Alobaidly Foundation for International Relations, Fahad Services, Eurotek Manpower, Bousheikhah, Al Khaled, Bronze Company, Al Kayr, Special, Sahm Abyad (White Arrow), Bravo, Al Safwa International Company and Al Barq Manpower.

According to the MOL’s Director of Employment Administration Fawaz al Rees, who did not go into criteria specifics:

“The Ministry of Labour is keen to support all agencies in their effort to become first class agencies, so that they provide better services to the community including residents and Qatari citizens.”
