The Embassy

 

Diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Qatar were established on 5 May 1981.  For over a decade, Qatar was covered by the Philippine Embassy in the United Arab Emirates.

 

The Philippine Government opened an Embassy in Doha in May 1992.  Located in the West Bay Area, the Embassy was initially headed by First Secretary and Consul Mariano A. Dumia as Chargé d’ Affaires, a.i. The Qatari Government, in turn, opened an Embassy in Manila in 1994.

 

The first resident Philippine Ambassador to Qatar was H.E. Antonio B. Magtibay (1994-1998). He was succeeded by Amado S. Tolentino, Jr. (1999-2002), Wenceslao Jose O. Quirolgico (2002-2005) and Isaias F. Begonia (2005-2009).

 

H.E. Crescente R. Relacion is the current Philippine Ambassador to Qatar while H.E. Jassim Ali Abdullah Al Obaidly is the Qatari Ambassador to the Philippines.
