Qatar’s exit visa policy going to get scraped off, by the end of the year, announced the UN’s International Labour Organisation on Friday. Qatar has introduced a series of labor reforms since its selection as the 2022 World Cup Host.

“Kafala” or sponsorship, or the exit visa system, which required that foreign workers obtain permission from their employers to leave the country. It was implemented in October, but only to 5% of the workforce. However, by the end of this year, the much controversial exit visa system will officially be eliminated for all the foreign workers.

Qatar has also introduced a monthly minimum wage of 750 riyals as a part of labor reforms, against widespread labor abuse.
