Hi, just got a 6 month contract to Doha and was wondering does anybody have some up to date experience, suggestions or anything regarding usage in Qatar?
So, there is QAR in and QAR is fixed to the USD
I could find only one topic from 2016, saying that is a bad decision to use there.
Asked Support what to do in this case, since that 6 month contract can be extended. They told me, even if I will be a permanent resident in Qatar (I heard I will get it in the first month), just should keep my European phone number and everything will just work out fine. But won’t 's fraud management system recognize that I am pretty much in the same country for a very very long time, that is not Europe and block my account? Also, topping up with USD from Qatar does not seem a long term viable option, if they need proof of finances and show them my Qatari salary slip . Just trying to come up with worst case scenarios, what could go wrong.
So, does it make sense to keep and use in Qatar?
