Application Procedure for Qatar Family Visit Visa

If you’re already a resident in Qatar and would like to get a member of your family for a visit, all you have to do is visit the Ministry of Interior website (click here) ; and then go to the MOI Forms section and download the “ENTRY VISA/EXTENSION APPLICATION” PDF and fill in the required information.

The visa is usually valid for 30 days, and can be extended by resubmitting the same form.


1) Filled up application form
2) Copy of your valid Qatar ID card
3) Copy of your valid Qatar Residence visa
4) Copy of valid passport of  your visitor (family member)
5) Copy of your proof of kinship with visitor (in either English or Arabic) with DFA Red ribbon and attested by Philippine Embassy and MOFA (Birth Certificate of your visitor, it may also include your marriage certificate, your wife’s birth certificate if visitor is in-laws)
7) Bank Statements (stamped) for minimum of 6 months (2 Copies)
8) Original letter from your work sponsor citing your profession and salary (Salary requirement is at least QR7000)
9.) Copy of attested work contract

11.) Copy of Educational Certificate with DFA Red ribbon and attested by Philippine Embassy and MOFA


1. After submission of application of the visa, the approval/rejection might come as soon as 1 working day or may take it’s own time (on average 1 week). If rejected (yes, even after accepting your application it might be rejected for various reasons), you can speak to the immigration head and explain to him (bring with you additional supporting documents). You can check the status of the visa under ‘Visa Approval Tracking’ and once approved you can print the visa under ‘Visa Enquiry & Printing’ by clicking this link .

The above link is for English and you can also print the visa in Arabic by going to the Arabic site.

The visa is valid for one month and can be extended up to 6 months (including the initial month) once your immediate family is in Qatar or 3 months for extended or non-immediate family member.

2. Take a copy of the visa and go to Qatar Airways office and book a ticket with a return date within 1 month (as the initial visa is valid for 1 month). Do not forgot to ask the ticket agent to add the message ‘OK to Board’ on the ticket PNR as this would tell the Qatar Airways staff in the Philippines that the original visa will be stamped on arrival.

3. Send the ticket, visa, your passport copy, your visitor’s passport copy and marriage certificate (as applicable). These documents should be enough.

4. Once your Visitor lands in Qatar, the immigration staff will stamp one month visa on her passport. Within this one month you will have to get her medical done to extend the visa. The medical can be done at Medical Commission or at Ahli Hospital, Doha Clinic or Emadi Hospital. At the Medical Commission no prior appointment is required, your visitor needs to present his/her passport and a credit/debit card of yours to make the payment. After he/she clears the medical (which you can check online), you can go to any immigration office and extend the visa up to a maximum of further 5 months (or 3 months for extended family) – you can do this all in one go or every month. Once you have extended the visa, then you can extend the ticket.

FAQ on Investing with Sun Life Mutual Funds

Balanced Fund_August 2013


Balanced Fund_July 2013
What is a Mutual Fund?


A Mutual Fund is an investment company that pools together money from different investors and invests them in various securities depending on the investment objective of the fund. The mutual fund company issues shares to the public that represents their holdings in the fund.

What are the different types of Mutual Funds available?

There are four basic types of mutual funds currently available in the market categorized according to the investment objective of the fund or the investments that the fund is  primarily invested in.

  1. Money Market Funds invest purely in short-term (one year or less) debt instruments.
  2. Bond Funds invest in long-term debt instruments of governments or corporations.
  3. Balanced Funds invest both in shares of stock and debt instruments.
  4. Stock Funds / Equity Funds invest primarily in shares of stock.
Type of Prosperity Fund What’s My Objective? Where will my money go? What’s my risk appetite? How much is the minimum investment? What’s the minimum amount if I want to add?
Money Market Fund I just want to leave my cash for a short period of time and earn from it, too. This Fund invests in special savings accounts I’m very conservative Php 5,000 Php 1,000
GS (Government Securities) Fund I want my money to earn but my investment should be kept intact. This Fund invests mainly in government debt I’m conservative Php 5,000 Php 1,000
Bond Fund I want my money to earn but my investment should be kept relatively stable. This Fund invests in government and high-quality corporate debt I’m moderately conservative Php 5,000 Php 1,000
Balanced Fund I want my money to earn more and I can afford to lose some of my investment for higher return This Fund invests in a mix of  high-quality debt and equity securities I’m somewhat between conservative and risky Php 5,000 Php 1,000
Philippine Equity Fund I want to maximize the potential of my money for  higher return over the long term This Fund invests mainly in  high-quality equity securities I believe in the saying, “high risk, high return” Php 5,000 Php 1,000
Dollar Abundance Fund I want to invest my US dollars to preserve it. This Fund invests in foreign-denominated government and high-quality corporate debt I’m conservative USD 1,000 USD 200
Dollar Advantage Fund I want to invest my US dollars and I can afford to lose some of my investment for higher return This Fund invests in a mix of  high-quality debt and equity securities I’m somewhat between conservative and risky USD 1,000 USD 200

How do I earn from Mutual Funds?

If the NAVPS of the mutual fund you are invested in increases or appreciates, you can sell your mutual fund shares for a profit. In the same way, if the NAVPS of the mutual fund you are invested in decreases or depreciates, you may realize a loss if you redeem.

Like any other investment instrument, mutual funds are best held long-term especially for mutual funds that have investment objectives of capital growth such as equity funds.

Why should I invest in Sun Life Financial’s mutual funds?

Sun Life Financial is the only company in the Philippines offering a “family of funds”. Unlike other mutual fund companies in the Philippines, Sun Life Financial allows its investors to transfer their placements between the Sun Life Prosperity Funds as much as four times a calendar year, without being subjected to any charges or fees. This is because Sun Life Financial believes that investors’ needs change over time, and that they should not be penalized for shifting from one fund to another, if so dictated by their prevailing investment requirements. This is part of Sun Life Financial’s objective of becoming a total financial services company that is responsive to people’s needs.

Should I invest in mutual funds if there’s a decline in investor confidence with regards to the local economic market?

The decline of the local market, specifically the local stock exchange, is not exactly bad for mutual funds. In fact, this is the ideal time to buy stocks for mutual funds, when the prices are low. When the market improves and share prices go up, as they will, given time, the value of the equity securities will have risen along with them. Mutual funds are long-term investments, which should not be bought or sold based on short-term events.

Why should I prefer mutual funds when I can invest directly in the stock market?

Mutual funds can serve as an alternative to investing directly in the stock market. The Sun Life Prosperity Philippine Equity Fund invests in equities, which have historically been proven to outpace inflation. Compared with buying stocks directly, mutual funds require a lower initial capital outlay yet allow you to achieve diversification at the same time. What this means is that in mutual funds, for a relatively small amount of money, you can afford to buy into several companies and achieve variety for your portfolio. When buying stocks directly, however, you may have to use a larger amount of money in order to achieve the same level of diversification.

What is the difference between a mutual fund and a unit investment trust fund?

Both Mutual Funds and Unit Investment Trust Funds are fundamentally similar in the sense that they are both pooled funds wherein a group of investors entrust the management of said fund to a fund manager. The fund manager must then manage the funds among certain asset classes usually indicated in the name of the fund such as stocks, bonds or balanced. Thus, the decision of the investor should ultimately be based on the skill and reputation of the fund manager. Similarly, funds are valued under similar accounting standards, such as those governing mark-to- market, and the funds are entrusted to third party custodians. Both Mutual Funds and UITFs are not guaranteed unlike time deposits.

Notwithstanding, there are still important differences. Mutual funds, which are regulated by the SEC are corporations, thus, investors in these funds are shareholders and entitled to all the rights given to shareholders (except preemptive rights) such as participating in stockholders meetings or electing directors. Clients of UITF’s, which are regulated by the BSP, are not shareholders and do not enjoy these rights.

What are Sun Life Financial’s credentials in the areas of mutual fund management?

Sun Life Financial, through its subsidiaries worldwide, has been managing mutual funds for several decades. In fact, the oldest mutual funds in the United States and Canada are managed by members of the Sun Life Financial group of companies. The Sun Life Financial group of companies manage a combined total of CDN$388.7 billion of assets under administration as of September 30, 2008.

Locally, the investment management of our funds will be handled by our investment team in Manila. They presently manage assets in excess of Php 86 billion as of end-June 2007.

How liquid are the shares of the Sun Life Prosperity Funds? If I want to redeem my investment, how long does it take to process the transaction? 

You will get your redemption proceeds in a few days (maximum of seven business days) from the time your redemption order was received by our head office in Manila. The value of the redemption proceeds that you will receive will be based on the Net Asset Value per Share (NAVPS) applicable on the day your transaction was processed.

How much do you charge investors who purchase shares of the funds?

We offer our investors two purchase options when they place their money in our funds:

 The first option (Option A) is to pay an up-front sales charge, depending on the amount invested or upon investing. This sales charge is what we call the front-end load, and is used to cover expenses related to the distribution of the funds.

 The other option (Option B) is the back-end load which allows the investor to pay the sales charge upon redemption (selling shares to the fund), or even avoid paying the sales charge altogether, as long as he remains invested in the fund for at least five years. The deferred sales charge is on a decreasing annual basis, and reaches zero after five years.

How much is the required minimum initial investment?

For the peso-denominated funds, the required minimum initial investment is Php 5,000 for Options A & B. For the dollar denominated funds, the minimum initial investment is USD 1,000 for both options.

Am I required to make subsequent investments after the initial investment?

Subsequent investments are not a requirement. However, should you wish to increase your investment in the funds, the minimum amount for subsequent investments is Php 1,000 for the peso funds and USD 200 for the dollar denominated funds. This applies to any of the two purchase options.

We strongly advise our investors to regularly set aside a fixed amount of money for investments, regardless of the NAVPS. This way, you automatically buy more shares when the price is low, and fewer shares when the price is high. This kind of discipline is what we call Peso Cost Averaging.

Can you give me an estimated rate of return in a mutual fund?

Mutual funds are essentially long-term investments. You can get the maximum benefits from a mutual fund if you leave your money with the fund and let it grow. At the same time, the rate at which your money will grow cannot be predicted because when you invest in a mutual fund, you are investing in a diversified portfolio of securities that normally fluctuate in value. The securities markets in which mutual funds invest tend to rise and fall over the short-term, as will the value of your investment. Your ability to withstand short-term volatility will generally result in greater returns over the long-term.

How are investors protected in a mutual fund?

Mutual funds offer several levels of investor protection. First, they are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines.

Second, every mutual fund corporation has a Board of Directors to whom it reports and whose primary duty is to protect investors’ interests. Each fund has a different Board of Directors and each board is composed of a majority of people who are not connected with Sun Life Financial or any of its subsidiaries.

Third, mutual fund securities are held by a reputable custodian and do not form part of the assets of the company managing the fund. The custodian banks of the Sun Life Prosperity Funds include Citibank, N.A., Deutsche Bank, A.G., and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited. They keep all stock certificates and any other documents that evidence ownership of the funds’ assets. The primary purpose of having a custodian is to safekeep the assets of the funds.

Can I place an investment under the name of my child? If yes, what is the procedure on this?

You may place investments in the Sun Life Prosperity Funds under your name in trust for your child. Simply fill-out and indicate in the application form that the account is “in trust for” (ITF) the name of the child and accomplish a Confirmation of Trust agreement, available upon request from our Investor Services Department. Make sure that you provide a photocopy of your child’s birth certificate when placing investments under an ITF account. However, please note that the investment will not automatically be placed under the name of the child, when he/she reaches the age of majority. A written request must come from you in order for the transfer to take effect.

How much am I charged when I invest?

Investors are charged depending on the purchase option they have opted for. These are the following:

The Front-End load (Option A) sales charges are applied against the original capital at the time of purchase (plus 12% VAT) depending on the amount invested. This stands as a compensation for the registered representative and covering expenses related to the distribution of the funds.

For Peso Denominated Funds

Load Rate*
Less than P100,000
P100,000 to less than P1M
P1M to less than P5M
P5M and up

For Dollar Denominated Funds

Load Rate*
Less than US$2,000
US$2,000 to less than US$20,000
US$20,000 to less than US$100,000
US$100,000 and up

The Back-End load (Option B) allows the investor to pay the sales charge (plus 12% VAT) only upon redemption, or even avoid paying sales charges as long as they remain invested for at least five years.

 For Peso and Dollar Denominated Funds

If redeemed within…
Back-End Load*
   1st year
   2nd year
   3rd year
   4th year
   5th year
   Beyond 5 years

*Exclusive of VAT

What is NAVPS?

NAVPS or the net asset value per share represents the price of one share from a mutual fund. All shares in a mutual fund are bought and sold using the NAVPS, which changes every business day depending on the market performance of the fund.

Investing in Mutual Fund is similar to buying shares of a company. Your share has specific value which will vary from day to day. The term used to determine the value of your investment in Mutual Funds is referred to as the Net Asset Value Per Share (NAVPS). NAVPS is calculated daily at the end of trading day, so the price of your investment changes from day to day. One can calculate the NAVPS by dividing the total assets less total liabilities by the number of shares outstanding:

NAVPS = Total Value of Fund Assets – Fund Liabilities
                    Number of shares outstanding

How is the number of shares computed?

To compute for the number of shares bought, we simply divide the investment amount by the Offering Price

Offering Price – is equivalent to the NAVPS plus applicable sales charge:

No. of Shares Bought = Amount of Investment
Offering Price
