    Overseas lender 7th Sep 17 at 4:16 AM

    I am British living in Qatar. I want to top up my current personal loan but cannot because my company I work for is not listed with the bank.

    I have a good salary.

    I do not have a permanent address outside of Qatar

    Can anyone recommend good financial institutions that could offer me a personal loan based on salary?

    There seems so many fakes out there I don't know who to trust.

    Thanks in advance.

    You would probably be better finding a more relevant place to pose this question, perhaps a site for British ex-pats living in Qatar.

    Far more likely to find people who have been in your situation.

    If you have a UK bank they will not give you a loan if you are an ex pat.
    However they could introduce you to their offshore division who deal with people such as yourself all the time.
