Moving out of Qatar becomes tough, costly

FE Online Desk
Residents leaving Qatar this summer have to pay heavy price due to ongoing sea blockade of the country by three of Qatar’s Gulf neighbours.

According to a news report of Doha News, the ban on any Qatar vessels entering Emirati, Saudi, or Bahraini waters or ports has particularly affected people moving to these countries.

These expats said that they have no way to transport their possessions by sea or land. Many have been forced to sell all their furniture, household goods, and vehicles at heavily discounted prices.

Others leaving Qatar for good and heading home face paying thousands of riyals in storage charges for their goods, until new shipping routes out of the country get up and running.

Before the blockade, which began on June 5, most shipping came to Qatar through Jebel Ali port in the UAE. Since that was closed off, Qatar authorities and the major shipping companies have been working to find alternative routes.
