Saudi Expat travelling to QATAR

Hello Everyone!

I am a Filipino and i want to go to Qatar next month. I’ve been there late last year and got my Visa upon arrival in the airport but after the crisis between Qatar and Saudi/other GCC countries I wonder how it works now.

Is there anybody here have travelled to qatar from Saudi Arabia?
Please help,  thanks 😘

Hi dear, there isn't a direct flights to Doha but you could enter throw Kuwait or Oman, I hope this will help you info.

Thanks a bunch dear Mariam.
Yes some say take Kuwait or Muscat then to Doha. But do you think it’s still possible to get the visa upon arrival just like before?
Thanks dear, really appreciate it😘

Because you know what i went to travel agency here in Riyahd to ask but no one gave me an answer. They said they have no idea or maybe “i think” they are not allowed to give an information. I really don’t know.

Anyways... I’ll let you know if i get any info.

Well I may suggest you could call or visit The Qatari Embassy and ask about the visa.

Your entry is based on your passport so traveling via Kuwait or Muscat will not alter the entry status. Just check that a Philippine passport still has visa on entry status. It does sometimes change. Looking on the Internet you will need an e-visa. … e_citizens

Thanks Mr. Martin 😊

Please try to understand the meaning of the term "Exit Re-entry visa"  :lol:

If you are to exit KSA, you need it

I live in Saudi Arabia, n I want to go Qatar. Bt crisis between Qatar and Saudi Arabia not ended till now, m confused can I get flight from Saudi or not.. pls tell me

Use KW airlines

There are no direct flights from Saudi/UAE/Bahrain to Qatar any more.  You have to travel via Oman or Kuwait.

I have been told by friends that the land route is now closed completely. There are no direct flights, but several indirect route options. Visa is dependent on your passport, since GCC resident permit based visa is no longer applicable

Yes, visa delivery still is done at the airport in Doha.
No specific issue.

Hi Cess! i just want to ask, did you travel to qatar? im planning to go there also but im worried when coming back again to KSA.


My husband is currently working in Riyadh and I am working Qatar. He plans to visit Qatar this August as I would provide him Family Visit Visa.

I know he will not have any issues entering Qatar (travelling via Oman route). But will he have issues in re-entering Saudi coming from Qatar?

Did you try travelling already?

No issue for expats coming back as it will be through Oman or Kuwait.

im also worried entering back to saudi.. Maybe they will see the Qatar stamp in the passport
Thanks for the information, as im planning also to visit  this coming july In sha Allah..

Hi Guys,

How about the visa to Qatar, is it still upon arrival? Im currently working in Saudi Arabia with Philippine passport. thanks.

Hello sir,

Does the Immigration in saudi arabia ask you for your travel destination if you go via kuwait to arrive in qatar? Like, visa and other documents.

Possible visit visa on arrival in qatar airport still available? Im taking a visa on arrival.

Hope you can help me clear my confusion. Thank you in advance.

Immigration never asks you where you are going.   Only the airline staff will - at check in and at boarding gate.

Thank you.. It helps me a lot..

Hi, did you get any information regarding the visa upon arrival for us PH holders living in Saudi Arabia? You're response would help me a lot, since I am visiting Qatar ain 2 weeks.
Thank you
