Hi, I would like some advice on what to do in Doha during June/July, I think the stopover is during the night. I don't want to just stay at the airport, does that mean I can go outside the airport. do you have to pay extra to like go outside, how much is this to the rand as I'm using Rands, please answer A.S.A.P as I need advice now!!!!

I am assuming that you are carrying South African passport, in that case you will not be entitle for visa on arrival, hence you need to pre-arrange your visa if you wish to go outside the airport during your transit in Doha. Please contact Qatar Airways to arrange tourist visa.

For 34 nationalities which are entitled to have visa on arrival, cost is approximately 30USD or less than 300 rand, but as advised South Africans are not entitled for visa on arrival.
