QATAR - Huge turn-out of registrants of Qatar based OFWs to be able to attend to President Rodrigo Duterte’s meeting with Filipino community crashed the website of the United Filipino Organization in Qatar (UFOQ) in just few hours after the Philippine Embassy announced its invitation.

On April 9, the Philippine Embassy, through Ambassador Alan Timbayan, sent out invitation for President Duterte’s official visit to oil-rich Emirate on April 14-16, but those who are interested should have to register first.

The President’s meeting with Filipino Community will be held at the Lusail Multipurpose hall, Lusail Sport’s Arena on April 15 between 6:00 pm to 8:00 p.m.

In a statement, Ambassador Timbayaan said, “For security purposes and physical layout limitations, the venue will be able to accommodate 6,000 persons. Filipinos who would like to attend the gathering would be required to register their attendance a few days before the event.”

However, in just a few hours after the announcement, the UFOQ website crashed because thousands of Qatar OFWs want to register. Registration is open on a first come-first serve.

Most of the registrants received an error message “500 Internal Sever Error” of “404 Page Not Found” and have to refresh several times until you fill-in the information including the submission of photo. 

Some of the registrants, who failed to register on that night, have to wake-up early the following day just to register successfully. Some successful registrants do not received email confirmation and have to email UFOQ to received confirmation tickets.

By morning of 11 April 2017 the registration is full as per website.  Some of the unsuccessful registrants plan to go to the venue hoping to see PPRD.
