I am receiving many questions about travel to Qatar because of the most recent diplomatic rift between Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Qatar.

At this point there are no visa or passport issues for US passport holders traveling to Qatar and your US passport must be valid for six months after the completion of your trip to Qatar.

Tourist and transit visas can be obtained at the Hamad International Airport in Doha for US passport holders and citizens of 32 other countries. If you do not fall under the 33 countries that are eligible for visas on arrival you must obtain a visa in advance in your home country.

If traveling to Qatar for business, you can obtain a visa in advance from Travel Document Systems. Business visa processing can be lengthy so start early!

I adore traveling and exploring unfamiliar places and I have always enjoyed my visits to Qatar!
