Under Qatar’s Investment Law No. 13 of 2000, maximum investment limits are set at 49 per cent of a company’s capital. However, the law allows for 100 per cent ownership in certain special situations and with prior government approval. Foreign investments are not allowed in commercial agencies and purchase of real estate, banking and insurance companies unless authorised by a decision from the Minister. No branches can be established, but other contracts may be added to the same commercial registration. A commercial permit shall be issued with each contract.
