Long time lurker, first time poster. I've accepted a position for August in Qatar, although I have just received a confirmation that the term will officially now start on September 1st. I'm seeking clarification on which documents I need to get legalised but am finding the HR department from the school vague and unhelpful. The FCO and Qatari Embassy are currently closed due to Covid-19. From what I can gather, I will need to have the following documents certified by a solicitor, prior to sending them to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Birth Certificate University Transcript + Covering Letter Police Clearance Certificate - specifically the Child Protection Certificate (ICPC) I understand that I will need to undergo a medical examination at some point but I have no idea when or how?! If anyone can set me straight or ease my growing anxiety as to if I've missed or misunderstood anything, I'd greatly appreciate it.
