BREAKING: Non-Ticket Holders Will Be Allowed To Enter Qatar Including Residents & Citizens Of GCC Countries
The regulations for entering Qatar are changing and might not be very clear to some so let’s break it down and simplify it as much as possible.
On November 4, it was announced that FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 officials stated that after the group stages travellers with no tickets to the games can enter Qatar. This has already taken effect.
So just a recap, if you want to travel to Qatar, you don’t need a ticket but you will need a Hayya Card
With that being said, proof of accommodation and a fee of QR500 is required.
The Hayya Card is your key to everything! This card is your entry permit to Qatar and stadium access, and it grants you free access to the Metro and bus. Additionally, the Hayya Card is your access to get into Qatar for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
