Nationals from literally dozens of countries in Europe and elsewhere, including but not limited to the below list need only present a valid passport to enter:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United States
- 33 countries whose citizens can gain a visa waiver on arrival, that is valid for 180 days.
- While the waiver for nationals from the 47 other countries is valid for 30 days.
Also noteworthy of this recent proactive move of Qatar was to eliminate the Visa of Arrival costs that used to cost 100 Qatari Riyal per person.
Qatar now claims to be the most open country in the GCC block and it will be interesting to see if it's neighbors like Saudi Arabia and the UAE will follow suit to attract more Tourism in their respective destinations. On that topic we fully expect Saudi Arabia to offer Tourism Visas within 2018.
