UPDATE: The Ministry of Interior is urging everyone – Qatari citizens, expatriates and all legal persons – to register their national address through the app ‘Metrash2’, the MOI website (www.moi.gov.qa) or through the service centres of MOI starting on 27 January until 26 July. 

The issuance of the National Address Law came as a leap to cope with the economic and social developments and legislative advancement witnessed in the country recently.

HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani issued Law No 24 of 2017 on the National Address. According to the law, the national address consists of data that the assignee takes and upon which all dealings with government and non-government entities are made. The assignee is any natural or juridical person, whether citizen or expatriate or their legal representative.

The Law follows the strategic development of e-government, to complement the legislative structure necessary for e-government transactions, and the transition from descriptive to digital address.

National Address Law

Any person who violates any provisions of this Law shall be punished with a fine not exceeding QAR10,000. This includes not filling the National Address form or providing accurate or truthful data.

  1. Home Address
  2. Fixed phone number and mobile number
