Can sponsorship be changed after QID expires in Qatar?

Destination: Qatar

I requested to my previous company for NOC as I got new job offer. My previous company is ready to give NOC and only my management's signature is pending. My QID will expire within few weeks. My previous contract period was 5 years. They terminated me due to crisis of COVID 19 and I worked there for 1 year and 7 months in my previous company. Still, my sponsorship is under my previous company and my doubt is if I get NOC still sponsorship can be transferred even after QID expires? Please help and clarify my doubts with exact information as I'm confused.

How can you move to and live in Sweden as a retiree and not work?

Expert Info

Submitted by azluncie on Mon, 08/31/2020 - 21:05
Destination: Stockholm

I really want to live in Sweden at least part time and eventually become a citizen with dual citizenship (USA). Does anyone have suggestions for how to accomplish that? My understanding is that a person must live in Sweden 5 years before becoming a citizen but how does one do that when one can only stay for 3 months with a US passport or 6 months maximum with a Schengen visa? I thought about calling the Swedish Embassy for advice but thought I would try this forum first. I already speak Swedish pretty well so that is no problem for me. Thanks for any insights and advice!!!
