British Embassy launches new web-site with Arabic language content

Due to our excessively long holidays we were a bit late checking our email and this press release from the British Embassy arrived a couple of days ago - you have probably already seen the information elsewhere. However, we have published just in case you haven't and it is of use.

Note - for contact details of embassies in Qatar (along with links to websites where available) see our web page Foreign Embassies in Qatar.

British Embassy launches new web-site with Arabic language content

The British Embassy is delighted to launch its stylish new web-site “UK in Qatar” that contains a raft of new information about the services offered by the Embassy, living and working in the United Kingdom, and offers key contact details and background to the Embassy in Arabic.

Visitors to the new site can also access the Embassy’s image library held on its ‘flickr’ site, which contains a display of historic Embassy photos as well as images of the Embassy’s activities in recent months.

The Embassy plans to translate more and more of the site into the Arabic language this year to complement the existing UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Arabic site. The Embassy’s Visa Application Centre already boasts an Arabic web-site.

New Ambassador John Hawkins said: “We have a modern and impressive Embassy and now we have a web-site to match. We hope all our customers will find it clear and accessible.”

The address for the Embassy’s new web-site is ukinqatar.fco.gov.uk, though the current britishembassy.gov.uk/qatar will continue to take users to the new site.
