Dear Gervase,

Hope you are fine and well, I have got your contacts from Dr.Al-Zoman, Director of Saudi NIC ( IDN ccTLD manager of Saudi ).

Qatar got approval for the IDN string .قطر (xn--wgbl6a ) which is outlined in ICANN on the bellow link :

http://www.icann.org/en/topics/idn/fast-track/string-evaluation-completion-q-en.htm 

As you know that a friendly user experience in using IDNs is very important for the successes of IDN implementation, Firefox Is an important browser and we would like Qatar’s IDN string to be approved on your TLD white list and distributed in your future Firefox updates .

Appreciate your support in this issue .. 

Best Regards,

Mohamed El Bashir

Hi Gerv, 

For IDN string .قطر (xn--wgbl6a ) we are using Arabic Domain Names Project Language table, which is also used by Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Emirates IDN TLDs .
http://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables/tables/sa_ar_1.0.html 

Variants table for Arabic language is also the one used by the same above entities . http://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables/tables/xn--mgberp4a5d4ar_ar_1.0.html

A dedicated IDN string .قطر (xn--wgbl6a ) registry site with registration policies is currently under development and well be published later .

Mohamed: has this yet happened? 

Gerv
The registry web site on its final stages to be released very soon, the policies published in Arabic and English .

Can be checked at the time being at : http://ictdrdev.forumone.com/policies 

Mohamed
Mohamed: can you give us the final URL for these policies, please?

Gerv
The URL is : www.domains.qa
Mohamed: more specifically, I am looking for a direct URL to your IDN policies, including a permitted character list. Ideally in English but, if it is not available in English, then in Arabic. Could you perhaps give me such a URL?

Thanks,

Gerv
This is a direct link to our registration policieis page in English : http://domains.qa/en/policies 

The bellow is a direct link to the Domain Registration Policy Document which have reference to Arabic language table :
