Now documents for use in Qatar must not be bundled

Qatar seems to have joined the United Arab Emirates in refusing to accept bundled documents. A document may of course be of several pages, but it must be one document so that e.g. the Memorandum and Articles of Association of a limited company are technically 2 documents and require to be dealt with separately.
However perhaps more relevant, especially at this time of year are educational certificates, so that a degree, a PGCE and a Police Certificate, which seem to be the staple diet for anyone going to teach there, must all be separate. Sadly this means that costs are increased, as each document will require an apostille before being legalised at the consulate.
