Man and woman in Qatar

By Olenka

I am new in Qatar. Today I was discussed with one of my colleagues from work
and she told me here in Qatar I cannot go in the street with a man friend because police can stop me and ask my marriage certificate. It’s to strange, I thought Qatar more open .As well I want to ask if I can
visit my friend man without marriage certificate.Just I have friends male and i would like to talk with him my language.

No problem there is no need to get frightened as long u respect the rules of this country holding hands it is not a crime,u can hold Ur girl friend hand,now days even Qatari holds their wifes hands in public,but no kissing.Qatar is quite a safe and open country for all the nationality.

Well can't say really.It is more like un-implemented,yet legally they can ask you.Never experienced such a thing although when I was with my female friends..

Of course you can.

What you have to avoid is visible "signs", means holding hand with a person of a different sex, kissing in public...

Otherwise of course there is no problem. Also think of dressing in a manner that respect the local tradition, mean no visible knees or shoulders.

I think my company wants to make me scare this country since I am new here. Actually nobody didn’t explain me rules except that I have to be in home 12 like Cinderella.That is make me to think leave Qatar ASAP
