Which passport do you have? If you are national of countries entitled for visa on arrival than you problem is solved. You can get list of countries whose citizens are entitled for visa on arrival on dohaairport.com/en/…visa_regulations.html

If you are not entitled for visa on arrival, in that case you have two choices.

1) Ask your friend to arrange visit or tourist visa for you.

2) Contact Qatar Airways or any hotel in Doha, they will be able to arrange tourist visa for you.

@Sharma83 No you do not need a transit visa if you are going to stay within the airport.

Only people who want to leave the airport and visit the city require a visa.

@ PremNaidu

As Indian passport holder you are not entitled for visa on arrival.

You need to pre-arrange visa which can be done by

Contacting Qatar airways

Contacting Qatar Embassy in your city

Contacting hotels in Qatar

Hello,

We are two Canadian citizens (so I believed are entitled to a Visa on arrival), and have booked hotels while transiting through Doha on our way (and back) to Asia.

I know we are supposed to get the Visa on arrival at the Airport but how does this work? And how much does it cost per person?

I have bookings through Airbnb (which is like owners renting their apartments). Hope this is not a problem

Thanks!

@ spartac

As Canadian passport holder you are entitled for visa on arrival.

Cost per person is approx 35 USD, payable through bank card only, no cash.

This process is valid for preset Airport, when you get off airplane take the bus to "Doha Arrival Terminal" approach immigration officer, give your passport and bank card, that's it.

Immigration officer does not ask for hotel booking.

As a UK passport holder I have read that we can get a visa on arrival - but how long is the visa valid for?

we will have 2 overnight stays in Doha (one on outward journey and one inbound) which are 17 days apart - will the one visa cover us for both stays?

@ nibrika

Validity is one month and visa is valid for single entry only.

On your return you will get new visa.
