Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI), Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways today announced that Qatar will allow visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries, effective immediately.

Citizens of those countries* wishing to visit Qatar will no longer need to apply or pay for a visa; instead, a multi-entry waiver will be issued free-of-charge at the port of entry, upon presentation of a valid passport with a minimum validity of six months and a confirmed onward or return ticket.

Depending on the nationality of the visitor, the waiver will either be valid for 180 days, from the date of issue, and allow the visitor to spend a total of 90 days in Qatar (multiple-entry waiver); or it will be valid for 30 days from the date of issue and entitle the visitor to spend up to 30 days in Qatar with the possibility of applying for an extension of the waiver for an additional 30 days (multiple-entry waiver).

Under the law, children of Qatari women married to foreigners and people with special skills “needed by the state,” can benefit from the new status.

Foreign workers from countries including India and Nepal account for around 90 percent of Qatar’s population of 2.7 million.

Qatar’s World Cup organizing committee has said the Arab sanctions will not affect preparations for the World Cup.

(This version of the story corrects paragraph 2 to make clear that visitors from the listed countries can enter Qatar with a passport only, not that they will be given tourist visas on arrival)
