Transit visas are usually used by those who are passing through Qatar on their way to another destination.
In order to apply for a visa, applicants must meet certain requirements. These include having a valid passport with at least six months validity remaining, proof of sufficient funds to cover the duration of the stay in Qatar and a return ticket or onward ticket.
Applicants may also be required to provide additional documents such as a letter from their employer or sponsor, hotel reservation confirmation or invitation letter from a host in Qatar.
The application process for a Qatar visa is relatively straightforward. Applicants can apply online via the Qatar eVisa, which is quick and easy. Alternatively, they can apply in person at their nearest embassy or consulate.
Once the application has been submitted, it will take approximately three working days for it to be processed. Once approved, applicants will receive an email notification with their visa attached as a PDF file.
The cost of a Qatar visa varies depending on the type of visa and length of stay.
Tourist visas cost between $50 – $100 USD depending on the length of stay, while business visas cost between $100 – $200 USD depending on the length of stay.
