He clarified through his own experience that families of OFWs in Qatar will have an easier way to go about their visa stamping in Manila since Wide Wide World Express Corporation (WWWExpress)  is now accepting the requirements. Processing takes approximately 3-4 days and will be delivered straight to your home address.

He updated the information on his blog last March 12, 2018.

PROCEDURES FOR VISA STAMPING AT QATAR EMBASSY IN MANILA Updated March 12, 2018 

What are the updates?

Basically, the only update is that WExpress updated their websiteWide Wide World Express Corporation(or WExpress and formerly known as DHL Philippines) still handles the Qatar Visa Stamping in the Philippines. They serve customers all over the country through their numerous WExpress branches scattered from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao area. No stamping is done at the Qatar Embassy office.

Previously, they have a specific page for QATAR VISA STAMPING but they have now removed it on their new website. That explains why the link on my previous blog is broken.
