The aim of the paper is to introduce the concept of quasi bi-slant submersions from almost contact metric manifolds onto Riemannian manifolds as a generalization of  semi-slant and hemi-slant submersions. We mainly focus on quasi bi-slant submersions from cosymplectic manifolds. We give some non-trivial examples and study the geometry of leaves of distributions which are involved in the definition of the submersion. Moreover, we find some conditions for such submersions to be integrable and totally geodesic.
