Starting work in Qatar end August, child's school starts Sept before residence card issued

edited May 2012 in - Other M East
I am starting work in Doha end August in-shallah. My child is in year 11 at school, and their school starts 3 September. It will take 4 to 6 weeks for my residence card will be issued, and only then will she be granted family sponsorship, can I bring her in on visitors visa to start school and convert that to residence visa? She is at a crucial part of her studies and I do not want her to miss any school. I will appreciate any advice thank you.
