    Hi Sir,
    How to process my unclaimed drivers license card because I am here in Netherlands. As what I read in the news is only Bharain, Quatar and Saudi how about here in Netherlands?

      vlademer, Follow the same procedure, by making contact with your Philippines embassy serving the Netherlands and giving them your receipt numbers and any other data they may require.

      Hi there, Do you need the license for driving in Qatar? If so then I think the new rules for getting a drivers licence in that country require you to sit for a Qatar license and even then your occupation may not permit you to hold a license.

      If you are concerned about driving on your return to the Philippines, then the news is better. Even though your student permit may have expired, and cannot be renewed, getting a new one is just a matter of following the same process and providing the same documents that you did previously. To assist you the whole process is outlined here. Do this as soon as you return to the Philippines and you can be riding the same day.

      Please accept my apologies I don’t speak tagalog at all and Bisaya very poorly. Am I understanding that you are looking for the process to claim your Philippines drivers license from where you work in qatar. If so go to the LTO site and download the application process to have the license delivered to the nearest embassy to you, for pickup. If That is not what you are asking please ask again.
