    • Long layover (20hours) in Doha international airport, what and how should I do?

      Doha May 17, 2016 at 7:56 PM


      My Qatar airline will make me stay in Doha for 20 hours (from 7:00AM on July 18th to 2:30AM on July 19th) until next transferred flight. My original flight is from New York in USA. I will head to Cape Town after I stay in Doha for 20 hours.

      What should I do in Doha airport? I think that I need a long nap probably.
      So, can I use complimentary stay during the time in airport hotel?

      And, can I use complimentary access to any lounge for me?

    • Doha Transit question

      Qatar Apr 26, 2016 at 10:39 AM

      I am considering a trip that would require transiting in Doha, probably not leaving the airport unless the layover turns out to be very long.

      My "problem:" I am dual US/Israeli citizens. I will be traveling on my US passport anyway. But it says I was born in Israel.

      1) are Israeli citizens barred from transiting in Doha?
      2) will the airport officials even ask to see passports?
      3) will US passports with born in israel be a problem?

      We can avoid all this by taking another route, but this one is quite a bit cheaper so I thought I would explore it.

All expenses are to be answered by my Qatari boyfriend. He will be applying for my visit visa there in Qatar. What would be the other requirements?

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

    • Unpaid phone bill & tourist visa related queries

      Qatar Nov 24, 2015 at 9:01 PM

      Hello all :)

      I am presently residing in Singapore but I worked in Qatar from 18 Jan 2014 to 20 April 2015 under my company's sponsorship. However, due to some emergency, I had to leave Qatar and couldn't join back in time hence was advised to resign.

      Due to this rush and chaos, few legal matters are left unsettled & hence I need your guidance and advice.

      1) Since I left Qatar in a rush, I could not terminate my ooreedoo phone number and they kept billing me till Sept 2015 even after I kept sending them emails requesting to terminate my number and now the cumulative bill totals for 3517QAR. However I left Qatar in April and my number stopped working by May since the bill was not paid. The maximum I should pay is till May 2015.

      Further, when I tried paying the bill till may, it did not accept non-qatari credit cards and by that time my bank account in Qatar was already closed. Hence I am very scared that ooreedoo will lodge a police complaint against me and I shall be caught by immigration police if I plan to to go GCC countries. Can anyone let me know is it something to be scared about ? and if yes, then how can it be resolved?

      2) I am planning to visit Qatar in Feb 2016 to visit some close friends and relatives. But I am scared that since I have not completed 2 years ever since I left Qatar after working, shall there be any issues in obtaining a tourist visa ? How should I apply it to have the maximum approval chances ? (a) Through Qatar Airways (b) Through some hotel in Qatar © Through Qatar Embassy in Singapore (d) Any other suitable option?

      Kindly address my above listed queries and many thanks for your time :)
      I look forward to your response at the soonest.

      Thank you !

      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?
