Unsurprisingly, several people want to get a Qatar visa to visit this beautiful country. It’s such a lush country, with sprawling souks selling everything from spices to shoes, and it also has downtown Doha, the largest shopping center in the entire Middle East. But before you can enjoy this and visit Doha Qatar you must have a visa for Qatar.
There are different types of visas in Qatar that allow you to visit Doha Qatar or even stay there for a relatively long time. Here are some examples of types:
1. Tourist visa
This visa is valid for 2 weeks. However, you can get a joint visa for Qatar and Oman that can last 3 weeks. Tourist visas can be obtained for you from your hotel or through Qatar Airways. A tourist visa costs about 500 Qatar riyals or about $ 138. If you choose, you can extend your visa from 2 weeks to 2 weeks, which is not uncommon if you visit Doha Qatar and get entranced by its beauty.
2. Work visa
A Qatar work visa can be valid for 1 to 3 months. These are usually arranged by the expat’s employer. This is initially necessary for the person to enter the country. Once that is set up and the person can enter the country, he or she must obtain a residence and work visa. You must undergo a health check for these visas.
3. Exit Visa
All working residents wishing to leave the country, except those sponsored by their husbands or fathers, will be required to obtain an exit visa. An exit visa requires you to get a guarantor who says he or she is willing to pay all your debts if you leave something outstanding before you leave. Exit visas can be obtained online by employers, but you must read Arabic for this. Otherwise, you can go to the immigration center in Al Gharaffa.
4. Transit visa
This is a special type of Qatar visa that you need to secure if you have a connecting flight in Qatar and you need to stop there for 2 days.
5. Business visa
Entrepreneurs and women from a handful of countries such as Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, United States, Japan, Canada, Portugal, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, South Korea, Norway, and Greece are allowed to obtain a business visa. This type of visa is pre-arranged by a company based in Qatar and can be valid for 2 to 4 weeks.
6. Visit Visa
People who are allowed to work in Qatar can sponsor their relatives and relatives to visit Qatar for a maximum period of 6 months. Spouses and children can even stay for 1 year. In addition to the passport, this type of visa also requires the birth and marriage certificate. This is a great opportunity for family members and relatives to visit Doha Qatar.
