Qatar sets minimum wage for expats

A minimum wage for expats has taken effect as part of labour reforms unveiled last August, according to Qatari media.

The Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs announced the implementation of the new minimum wage for all workers beginning Saturday.

According to the new regulations, the minimum wage is set at QAR 1,000 per month. An additional QAR 500 must be allocated per month by the employer for accommodation and an additional QAR 300 per month for food, unless the employer provides both accommodation and food.

The minimum wage covers employees across all sectors in Qatar including domestic workers.
