    • time to clear customs at DOH?

      Doha Dec 16, 2015 at 5:54 AM

      (sorry if this is a repeat)

      We are flying to Nepal from PHL thru DOH in March. I assume we will need to clear customs at DOH. there is a flight to KTM with a 1 1/2 hr connection time. Is this reasonable?

      Also, when we return from KTM to PHL, my best connection onward from PHL has a 1/12 hr connection time...

      thx for any advice!

      Doha Oct 29, 2015 at 3:53 AM

      Hello all, I'd be grateful if you could give me some pointers about the following.
      I want to land at Doha and fly to Dubai before entering Qatar. My flight to Doha is not connected with the flight to Dubai, so officially it won't be a transit flight.
      Would it be necessary for me to enter Qatar (EU passport - visa upon entering) and then exit within a couple of hours to catch my flight?

      I am an American and my best friend an Italian national - we will be at Doha (flying in from China and flying to Boston) during an extended (roughly 20 hours) layover since we are flying Qatar Airways. How do we obtain a tourist visa? Is it true you can just "pay" for one at the airport? Any suggestions to what we can do during that time frame?

      And does Qatar provide hotels for such long layovers?

      Two active and experienced senior world travellers. Our transit stop in Doha has blown out to 4h 50m (from 50m).

      Is there anything we can usefully do/see in Doha in, say, 4 hours (allowing for all formalities), or do we try to make ourselves as comfortable as we can within the transit area?

      Making our onward flight is imperative!

    • I want to visit qatar for 1 or 2 days to complete my bank releated work with IBQ

      Doha Dec 27, 2014 at 8:25 PM

      Dear friend,

      I want to visit Qatar for a short visit. Some time before i was working in Qatar for the qatar airways as a consultant software enginner from India.

      I was working only with the work permit, so once work permit was nearing to finish, i returned to india to work in the parent company.

      In this period, when working in qatar, i was having a salary account in IBQ bank. After i returned to india on 10th 2014, the may month entire salary was deposited in the IBQ bank.

      Since i dont have the RP in qatar, i don't have the online account and also my debit card was also blocked. Because of this i could not able to take that money.

      The bank asked me to send the set of documents, were some documents i can able to arrange from the indian bank but not all the document. It is very tededious to get all the documents.

      Hence instead i wish to go to qatar and complete my bank work and get the final salary hold in IBQ bank.

      Kindly provide how i can visit qatar in what visa i can visit.

      Thank you

      My husband and I have a long layover in Doha and would like to get out of the airport to see a bit of it. We land around 6pm local time and dont fly out until almost 2 am. We were thinking about going straight to the Souq Waqif to explore and get a bite to eat but it seems that Fridays are a bit different and it may be more difficult to get around. Is the Souq Waqif open on Friday evenings? What should we do if we cannot find a cab?

    • Air Transit : Urgent

      Doha Jun 4, 2014 at 12:06 AM

      Hi, this is the first time I am boarding a non-direct flight. So here is the situation:

      I am taking Qatar Airways from London to India with a stop in between i.e. Doha and I will be changing flights from Q565 to Q5(both are qatar) at Doha with a certain transit time.

      There are options to have a transit of 1 hr/ 3hrs/ 5hrs. Which one should I choose?

      Sorry this may sound very basic but I shall be really grateful if you could guide me on what happens at the transit after we get off from the first plane?

      We go out/ get our documents verified/ collect our luggage and take a re-entry and go through the check in again or we are directed to some transit area/ have no luggage/ we spend time there/ directly go to the required platform/ board the next flight? How does this happen? PLZ Guide

      Thanks in Advance !

      Doha Apr 21, 2014 at 6:47 AM

      I am travelling to Doha (stop-over on the way to Paris) on an 11 hour flight and am wondering which seats are the best on a Boeing 777-300ER (77W) V1. I'm travelling with my parents and siblings, and am currently thinking that the bulkhead seats are a good option. The only issues are that apparently we have reduced seat width and the personal TV will come out of the armrest instead of it being in front of us.

      If anyone has experience with this plane/flight or something similar, your advice would be appreciated. This is my first international flight and I need all the help I can get!

      Thank you.
