Qatar announced approval of a draft law on permanent residency card for non-Qataris, the Qatar News Agency (QNA) said.

The announcement came during a regular meeting of Qatari cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani.

The draft law stated that the ministry of interior will establish a committee to consider requests of granting permanent residency identity cards for foreigners, the report said.

Under the draft law, non-Qataris will allowed to get medical treatment and education in government institutions as well as other privileges, QNA reported.

According to the report, the law will also offer permanent residency card to children of a Qatari woman married to a non-Qatari, in addition to foreigners who provide valuable services to the country and people with unique capacities that meet Qatar's needs.

Qatar has enacted a series of laws to promote human rights, particularly, after the Arab quartet's decision last June to cut diplomatic ties with Doha and impose economic sanctions on the tiny Gulf state amid accusations of it financing terrorism - a claim Qatar rejects.

Earlier, Qatar has announced a number of draft laws that aim to facilitate and attract foreign investments to the country.

On May 26, Qatar has approved a draft law allowing non-Qatari investors to invest 100 percent capital in all sectors.
