Do you need a visa to travel to Qatar? What are the procedures that apply? Find out in this article.
If you travel to Qatar as a visitor or a tourist, a visa is required. The entry visa can be directly delivered at Doha airport if your home country is part of the list of 33 countries for which the visa is issued at the border. The entry visa for Qatar is valid for 14 days and can be renewed. You can find more information about entry visas on the Qatar Ministry of Interior website. Note that fees apply for the visa.
If your country is not part of the list, you need to apply for a visa at the nearest Qatar embassy or consulate. For more information, contact the Qatar embassy or consulate in your area, or refer to Hukoomi, that is the Government of Qatar online to find out more about entry requirements in the country.
Good to know:
If you are from a country member of the Cooperation Council of Arab Gulf States, a visa is not necessary to travel to Qatar.
