We had a connecting flight in Doha on the 27th of June so, I decided to apply for transit visa on the 6th of June to be sure. However, because of RAMADAN, the usual 7 days processing took up to 14 days. I was scared that I could not make it on time or there was something wrong in the copy of my passport I sent because it was not a scanned one.
I had to track my visa status once in a while in case there was an error.
Nevertheless, I got it few days before my flight and it was approved. Booking through Qatar Airways was the best decision we have ever made. Food on board was great and they have variety of drinks. From fruits juices to whiskey, vodka, wines and beers, UNLIMITED! Which my husband was really happy about.
Make sure you print a copy of the approved visa and bring it with you when you travel, as it should be presented prior to check-in and upon arrival in Qatar.
Nationals from a total of 80 countries can now take advantage of visa free entry into Qatar, thanks to their new visa waiver upon arrival. If you are applying from one of these countries, a pre-approved transit visa is no longer needed. For more information, click here.
