September 26, 2022
The Ministry of Interior recently announced that beginning on November 1, 2022, only Hayya cardholders will be permitted entry into Qatar through its air, land and sea borders. The following groups are not affected by the suspension:
- Qatari citizens, residents and GCC citizens holding a Qatari ID card.
- Holders of personal recruitment visas and work entry permits.
- Humanitarian cases through the airport (based on approval from the official application platform).
Furthermore, Hayya cardholders may invite up to three non-ticketed fans to accompany them into Qatar. Each non-ticketed fan aged 12 years or older must pay QR 500 through the Hayya app prior to entry into Qatar.
The visit visa suspension will end after December 23, 2022.
