But then, 10000 QAR = £2100 - so not exactly unobtainable, and I'd be expecting more.
So the salary on offer for a fully qualified teacher is SO LOW you cannot sponsor your family, a lucky escape I would say.
How are schools going to attract staff without a living wage! The availability of young, single, cheap teachers is not an inexhaustible supply.
This immigration rule is tough but very standard. It is similar to migrating to Western countries. It is basically an immigration means test that you can support your family. It is also not only for a woman sponsoring their husband. Had a (male) teacher who couldn't bring their family in because they were on one income and the trailing spouse couldn't get a job. Type of passport may also have played a role. Had to prove he had £30-50k in savings for his family to come. Needless to say he didn't last long.
I think £3000/month or 16000QR seems to be a safe bracket for these type of one income immigration needs for families.
If salary is less than 10k in any job then how would a person survive here? It's good that the first one didn't work out.
