Good evening everyone. I had a good look at most of the thread in order not to ask anything that hasn’t been answered already, although there’s some discrepancies in which I believe is probably due to their current outlook and that they happen to be fairly random with the way they do things.

So, in regards to application timelines, a lot of people said they received the email for the online tests within five days, mine has been over two weeks and the status on the candidate page says “completed”. Someone suggested to apply again, as if the application was reviewed and forgotten. Is that the case when the status reads that? Anyone waited longer? Mine meets all the requirements, plus experience in reputable airlines, currently flying etc. would have at least expected an invitation to tests albeit I’m very aware they owe me nothing.

In regards to everything else, I hear you. I have friends there and they like it, they do say is not perfect though. But the premise here is that those who are truly happy are not banging about it online. What’s good for them might not be good for you and we have to respect that. So I’d say that it’s okay to warn people over certain things, but insult them for making a conscious decision in going for it isn’t fair when you did it too in the past. You tried, great, you have no right to deny the experiences for others. Would be nice to keep it friendly and civil.
I’m Boeing rated FO, not in a rush but considering how bad things are looking in the U.K. and the financials of my airline, I was looking for contingencies and the money in Qatar is appealing. I’m wondering what is the timeframe for Boeing rated guys considering the latest developments with the Airbus lot?!

Hi everyone,

Any of you is stuck at home waiting only for QCAA licence verification? I passed all the selections in January (02 - 05), and accepted the offer on the 17th of Jan. After sending them all the documents, I had my departure date changed to unknown due to the licence verification by QCAA. Let me know if you face the same issue! Also, if anyone wants some tips about the selection, feel free to PM me.

Anyone know if there's any leniency from Qatar Airways regarding the minimum 2 month validity of IR upon joining?

Oh, I will have the same issue I guess.
My IR is valid till the end of April, and my assessment is in a couple of weeks, I will get the results before the end of April for sure and if I pass, I will have to resign from my current company before going to sim for the LPC.

It says you need 1000 hrs min on airbus as PIC or 2000 hrs PIC on airliners over 50,000 kg MTOW that's what I am seeing

Any Airbus Rated PICs applied in the past 2 weeks? Have you received any response from QR? Or still showing ‘Application Status Complete’?

Thank You!
How long did it take for your application to change from “Complete” to “Meets Basic Requirements”?
