Football fans are getting ready as the FIFA World Cup is set to kick off in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December.
What do I need to enter Qatar for the World Cup?
Football fans will need to hold a Hayya Card - a form of fan ID - to enter the country from 1 November until 23 December.
Match ticket holders can apply through the online portal and bring an additional three people who don’t have tickets.
Once you have your Hayya Card you can use it for multiple entries to Qatar during the World Cup and you’ll be allowed to remain in the country until 23 January 2023.
The Hayya Card will also give you free access to public transport on days when there are matches including the bus, metro and tram.
Do I need to do a COVID test to enter Qatar?
You no longer need to take a pre-departure PCR or rapid antigen test to enter Qatar if you arrive after 1 November.
You also don’t have to pre-register on the government’s Ehteraz health app prior to arrival as travellers did in the past.
