Qatar-MMUP Engineering Registration Renewal and Upgrade


It is more evident that all engineers working in Qatar required to be registered by the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning under the Engineers & Engineering Committee Services.  

All engineers are classified in accordance with the years of work experience:

  • Grade A – More than Ten Years
  • Grade B – Between Five to Ten Years
  • Grade C – Less than Five Years

MMUP Engineering  renewal and upgrading requires that you submit all documents personally to MMUP offices. No need for on-line application.  The new requirement of the MME (previously MMUP) – UPDA is that all registrations including renewal and upgrading shall be through on line application only. The link to the website below:

The requirements are as follows:

  1. Accomplished MMUP Application Form 6 with sponsor stamp and signature (see attached MMUP Form6). 
  2. Copy of MMUP Engineers certificate
  3. Copy of QID and passport
  4. Copy of Stamped/attested Work Certificates
  5. One (1) pc latest 2X2 ID Picture

Proceed to MMUP Building in West Bay Ground Floor area and file your documents on Window G.

If all your documents are in order you need to pay 200QAR (ATM or credit card only) and came back after 2 weeks for the ID/certificate.


Other useful tips and information are as follows:

  • As of 2015 MMUP replaced the certificate with ID similar to our driving license and Qatar ID.
  • You must renew your MMUP Engineer registration one month before expiry to avoid penalties

If you have other useful information and insights, I will gladly include them in the comments  below.

  1. My company give me Foreman Visa.

    Is it possible to take MMUP exam for Mechanical Engineer with Foreman Visa?

    If I am allowed to take the Exam and Pass, how to change my Foreman Visa to Engineer Visa.

    Please advise. Thank you!

    Best Regards,


    • Dear MDC,

      Please share if you have found development for this as I also have the same situation or worst because my profession in my visa is an administrator.

      Thank you in advance.



      • Profession is not an issue for applying and getting certified. After getting certified, it will be easy to change your visa profession.

  6. for my renewal of mmup grade A need prc,for the renewal,if no prc is it possible to renew/or i will take philippine board exam but i am alreaddy 60 years old.


    • Dear Domingo,

      I believe PRC is not required for renewal. When I renewed my MMUP last time it was not required. However MMUP might have changed its mind as they usually do. My recommendations is to just renew online and try. Kindly revert to me what happened so that i may inform others. Please check my other blog on renewal for more info. See link below

      Good luck!

  9. Hi,

    I want to renew and upgrade my MMUP registration through online.

    I followed the steps as suggested and prior to uploading of documents there are terms and condition “Committee’s requirements for accreditation” which has to be complied.

    For the Category: Certificates of experience issued within the State of Qatar – it states that
    1. The duration of the Engineer’s work in consulting companies shall not be calculated after 01/06/2011.
    2. The duration of the Engineer’s work in the contracting companies shall not be calculated after 01/01/2014.

    My MMUP certificate was dated 1-January-2014 which has a total experience of 4 years at the time of accreditation and since then I have added 3 more years of experience.

    Can I use my latest experience to upgrade?
    Or I will end up just renewing?
    What is the process to upgrade on later stage after renewing?


  10. Hi good afternoon,

    I would like to ask if there will be penalty for renewal of expired UPDA License?

    Mine will expire on 28th January 2018


  11. Dear sir ,

    My MMUP card is expiring next month, please let me know the procedure to renew MMUP card,
    How many days will it take to renew.


  12. Dear Henrikgal

    Appreciate your efforts in clearing doubts with your big heart. One of our Engineers have had his UPDA since 2012 and got expired on the 30th October 2017. He left Qatar and came back in a new visa under our sponsorship but by the time we got his QID stamped, it was 3 months after the expiry of UPDA. Please let me know if there are any ways that this could be renewed. Some one in UPDA said, submit renewal online and then if rejected, go to the UPDA office and request them but cant find any link for online renewal. Would really appreciate your valuable comments


  13. Hi all , I passed UPDA(mechanical) exam last week , I am having experience of total 11 years , 2006-2014 in India, 2014-2016 saudi arabia , 2017-to date in qatar. they have given me trainee grade the reason for which i think while uploading my experience my experience certificates i did not get them attested by MOFA as my PRO told its enough if I have qatar embassy at India attestation (which i had done while coming from India) , but i want to appeal now and want to know will they consider my appeal if I attest now my experience certificate from MOFA? or I have no chance and should wait untill 2021 to get grade C


      • Just recently passed as well and trying to appeal. If I use the link renew and reclassification it prompts, “You cann’t apply for renewal of registration. Your enrollment is still valid.” If I try re-enrollment it prompts, “You are not registered in Engineers &Consulting Offices Accrediting Committee OR your data still not deleted”. It seems that classification can only be done thru renewal.


  14. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is actually frustrating. A good site with exciting content, that’s} what I need. Thank you for keeping this web-site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.


  15. Hi Henrikgal, Is there any chance ta apply after failing 4 times in the exam? I went to MMUP Office they said I cannot take anymore. I was browsing the previous post and some took the exams more than 4 times.


      • Thank you for the quick reply. How do I Appeal again? I cannot appeal online as i have i don’t have any documents to attach for the appeal.


  16. hi. do you have the updated list of the school as of this 2018? as per the list of accredited school new era university still not on the list. thank you.
