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. Work Visa Validity

    Good Morning!

    My friend has a WORK VISA with a visa validity that will end this July.

    This is the only thing he holds here together with his passport.

    He said he didn't even take medical, finger printing etc. for QID.

    What will happen to him if it expires?

  2. Family RP

    for the process of converting family visit visa to Family RP, do we need to complete medical examination first , finger printing & proceed to immigration department for applying RP or do we need to get approval for permanent visa first? Family arrived here in Qatar last week
