The Embassy of Nepal, Doha, State of Qatar is the foreign mission of Nepal in Qatar. This Embassy looks after the foreign relation of Nepal with Qatar and also controls the foreign administration of Nepal at Qatar. The responsibilities of the Embassy of Nepal at Doha are diverse. Those responsibilities include safeguarding the Nepal – Qatar diplomatic relationship, maintaining harmony between the nations, working as mediator between the governments. Moreover, the embassy also looks after protection of the Nepalese migrant workers at Qatar.

Nepal has her residential mission at Qatar since 2000. Prior to the establishment of the Embassy in Doha, the foreign affairs were controlled by the Embassy of Nepal in Riyad, capital city of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was accredited as the non-residential Embassy of Nepal to the State of Qatar. With time, Qatar became a premium work destination for Nepalese and Nepalese migrant workers started increasing in numbers rapidly. Along with this rapid increase in number of Nepalese nationals, need of a residential mission was realized as the problems and grievances Nepalese workers also increased rapidly.

This was followed by an official visit of Rt. Hon’ble Mr. Girija Prasad Koirala in 1998. He was Prime Minister then and paid an official visit to the State of Qatar. He was briefed by the Nepalese community about the complexities they were facing in absence of a residential diplomatic mission. They also highlighted the condition of the Nepalese expatriates working in Qatar and the future prospects of the demand of Nepalese work-force in the development projects I Qatar. The situation was well studied by the Qatar authorities too and a formal request was delegated to the then Prime Minister of Nepal. There was a mutual agreement of opening up a Mission in Doha so that welfare of the Nepalese expatriates could be safeguarded. This would also allow Nepalese based at Qatar to easily come up with foreign administrative works being done easily and they need not visit to Riyad. Both the governments did enough home works and came under a conclusion to establish a residential mission in Doha. A permanent residential mission finally took to an establishment at the level of Ambassador. The Embassy was official established in Doha in 11 July 2000.
