Recently, the UN World Tourism Organization named Qatar as the ‘Most Open Destination in the Middle East’ and the eighth most open destination worldwide in terms of visa facilitation.
Truly, Qatar Tourism and Qatar Airways leave no stone unturned to make the country a most welcoming destination for foreign nationals from across the globe. In 2018, Qatar registered 1.8 million foreign tourist arrivals, which is forecast to touch 3 million by 2022. In a bid to reach the goal, Qatar Airways, the government of Qatar, and the Qatar National Tourism Council have collaboratively launched a new electronic visitor authorization system.
Using the electronic visitor authorization system, the residents of Qatar can invite their relatives and friends even from the far-flung parts of the world to visit Doha during the annual “Summer in Qatar” program. The invitees will be able to obtain a free visa upon arrival at any of the designated entry points in the country, provided that they apply for the free visa to Qatar online prior to their travel.
