Moving to Qatar

Qatar has a relatively high standard of living and many expatriates find living in Qatar a very different experience from anything they had expected or what they have been used to.

Sports in Qatar

Some people say that ‘sport makes the world go round’. Guess what? They just might be right.

Investment and Finance

The currency used is Qatari Riyals which is displayed as QR or QAR for short. The riyal is pegged to the US Dollar at 3.65 and there are reputable money changes at the airport and most shopping malls.

Cars and driving

Most people rent cars when they first move here, but this can be expensive in the long run, so its worth looking to buy or even lease a vehicle.
