If you’re an expat living in Qatar, then you should know that there are ways to pay your Zakat. The Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs permits people to pay Zakat online, through SMS or even through a telephone call.

Paying Zakat online

Fill in the form and if you want, you could even request for a receipt. Then, pay with your credit card.

I think it's important for ex pats to support things like this. Irrespective of religion Qatar is providing me and my family a fantastic life here. We always give to the Zakat charity box, even if it's just a few QR, the Qatari's are always very grateful.
