    Dear Ilites,

    My MIL has come here on a Single entry Visit visa. We have extended her visa for 5 months and in between we need to go to India. Earlier we had no plans of bringing her back along with us after the India trip. But now we need to bring her back and were checking out the options.

    I found something like return visa (We need to get this before leaving the country) in the moi - Entry Visas when we travel between Qatar and Oman. Do we have something like that for India too? Did anyone faced such situation?

    No idea ,Sharmila! I thought we can go and come back if the visa has not expired.

    Thanks for your reply Bhuvana. We are checking out the options and will post it here once we are done with it.

    Btw we cannot go back and come on a single entry visa even though it has not expired.

    Hi, Visit visa AFAIK, are single entry only. once you leave the country, you need to come on a new visa. there has to be a gap of 3 months before appying for a new Visit visa (sometimes, they give it after 2 months...but then it "depends" )

    Hi Seena,

    We could also get a multiple entry visit visa. The sponsor has to approve this.

    We got an info that we could approach the immigration office in Madinat khalifa with the passport and visa copies and have to inform them the period they will be out of Qatar. They will issue a return visa. With that we could come back without any new visa. We are yet to approach them. Will post our experience soon.

    Hi friends,

    We managed to get a return Visa for my MIL. All we did is, went to the immigration office and asked that we need a return visa within the Visa validity period. They asked whether this is the first time we are applying it.(I assume that they will issue it only once for a Single entry Visa). We said yes and paid 200 QAR for it and got the return visa.

    It has been printed on it as Return visa. Other details are same as the usual visa.

    Hi Netfragerin,

    For getting a visit visa, your parents need not do anything. You need to apply it in the immigration office.
    Please find the details and procedures of getting a Visit Visa in this post - Visit Visa for Parents .
