If it's for personal use you should be ok, but if you are importing for commercial purposes you need an appropriate license or have to go through a company. Check with the shipping company. Usually there is 5% duty.

Hey,

Not sure of the limits, long as you can pay the Customs Duty charges.

All goods imported into Qatar are subject to customs duties, based on a percentage value of goods (typically 5%), or a per unit basis. The value of goods is calculated according to the Regulations under the Customs and Ports Law.
