Bhusal added that Friday’s “ministerial decision” allowed authorities to continue recruiting. He also said the Nepalese authorities have also “requested a visa-free and free travel scheme for Nepalese workers” at the expense of the employer.
Nepalese officials did not provide further details on the number of workers to be hired in the Gulf state.
The news comes as Qatar prepares to welcome at least 1.5 million fans from around the world to watch the premier sporting event, which will run from November 21 to December 18 this year.
Guest workers from all over the world are busy preparing various departments, including the construction of World Cup stadiums.
As the first Arab country to host this event, Qatar has captured the attention of the world, especially with its treatment of migrant workers. The Gulf State was initially criticized for its lack of a policy to protect workers from labor rights violations.
However, he quickly reacted by introducing historic reforms, including abolishing the controversial Kafala or patronage policy. Under this system, workers wishing to change jobs no longer require a “letter of no objection” from their employer.
While the government has been instrumental in bringing about reforms, criticism of Qatar lingers over employers violating newly passed laws, according to findings by various human rights groups.
