Visas and Permits

Primary tabs

Tourists from over 33 countries - including the USA, Canada, Germany, and Iceland - can obtain a tourist visa upon arrival at the airport.

Other nationalities needs to arrange this before hand, either through a travel agent, a hotel or even Qatar Airways.

For work permits and business visas, the local company usually arranges this.

Changes to visa regulations regularly occur on short notice, so look through recent posts in this section.

Make sure to also check with your airline and/or embassy for further information.

  1. Visa name problem

    Hi I came here in qatar almost 7 months over. Now my company applied for resident visa. Since I was here before they were asked to get CID clearance, found that my old visa name and present visa name is little different. Which was mistake in the visa and my passport name same before and now.

  2. Title Change

    My Company has processed my Visa in engineering category but my degree was not engineering but specialization in Computer Science degree, and after my RP processing my company admin/HR has lost my original degree certificate.
