New purpose-built facilities for Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MOI) are on the cards for early 2019.

The ministry will move to new, custom-built facilities in north Duhail, valued at approximately $224m (QAR816.7m).

The complex is set to be built opposite Lekhwiya Sports Club for the General Directorate of Nationality, Borders and Expatriates Affairs, which will move from its current site in Al Gharafa, Doha News reports.

Contracted to build three of the buildings within the complex – which will house Nationality and Travel Documents, Expatriate Affairs and the Border Passport department – is contracting company Al Aali International.

Disabled access will form part of the design and the complex will have up to 2,000 car park spaces for staff and visitors.

The Search and Follow-up and Administrative Affairs department will remain in its existing buildings.

The project is expected to be completed in 30 months, the MOI said in a statement.
