No, you don't have to be there... but it is cheaper and easier if you are. I will PM you with the address of a person in the DC area that does this for a price.

This is starting to become a very common request in Qatar. No bad thing.

It would be if it actually proved that you had a degree... but mainly it proves that you have a piece of paper that looks like the real certificates. This is a governmental money making process. If they really want to know that a teacher has a legitimate degree, they should be getting a transcript or other verifications directly from the universities involved.

Call the American Embassy! They can notarize your documents if show them the originals. Once they are notarized, take them to the Qatar Embassy (if there is one where you live - the narest place might be Germany). Failing that, get someone in the US to notarize copies of your documents with a lawyer if they can show the originals. All documents have to be stamped by the Min of Foreign Affairs in Qatar after you arrive. Check the Qatar government website, it's called Hukoomi.
