New Visa Scheme to Promote Qatar as World-Class Stopover Destination
With an initiative to promote Qatar as a world-class stop-over destination, the Qatar Tourism Authority, Qatar Airways and Qatar’s Ministry of Interior announced to amend the tourism visa system available to tourists currently, transiting via Doha.

The new transit visa will now allow passengers with a minimum stop-over time of 5 hours at Hamad International Airport. The passengers can now stay upto 96 hours in the country without any prior visa requirement.

This increase is designed to make stopovers easier and more attractive to Qatar Airways’ passengers.

Qatar’s transit visa is free of cost and is available on onset at the Hamad International Airport for passengers of all nationalities. To avail the visa on arrival, the travelers have to give confirmation of onward trip and completion of passport control measures. All transit visas will be approved and granted at the solitary prudence of the Ministry of Interior.

“Qatar Airways serves millions of people from around the world as they journey across our network of more than 150 destinations. Whether travelling for business or leisure, we want to enrich the journey of all of our passengers and are restructuring our fares to reflect this initiative and to promote stopovers to travelers. We are excited to offer our passengers the opportunity to taste the cultural highlights that the city of Doha and the State of Qatar have to offer. We are thankful to the Ministry of Interior and the Qatar Tourism Authority for helping us to create a journey that includes discovering Qatar, an experience that will stay in their hearts and minds forever,” said Qatar Airways group chief executive, his Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said.

The announcement for the new scheme was made on the occasion of the World Tourism Day. This is the 3rd major reform announced by Qatar to facilitate entry of travelers into the country.

Earlier this month the officials also announced a new course to accelerate the influx of the visitors arriving on board cruise ships. 

To make the most of their stay during transit through Qatar, travelers can explore ‘Discover Qatar’ stopover packages on offer from Qatar Airways Holidays.
