Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI), Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways yesterday 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.

These developments come as part of a series of measures that Qatar has taken to facilitate visitor access to the country.

The country is also considering further enhancements to its visa policy, such as waiving visa requirements for holders of a residence permit or a valid visa from the nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates), United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or the Schengen countries. 

The accepted 80 coutries include South Africa, England and India as well.
