How to get a Qatar visa electronically

The visa to Qatar is available through a straightforward online application process. The procedure takes place remotely, so eligible nationals can apply even from home.

All required is a working device (phone/tablet/laptop/PC), a stable internet connection, and an active email address.

To start the application process for a Qatar electronic visa, it is necessary to take your device and proceed with the steps below:

  1. Fill out the application form. The information required includes the applicant's personal, travel, and contact details.
  2. Upload the proper documentation. The documents must be provided digitally.
  3. Make the payment. The processing fees must be covered online via PayPal or credit/debit card.

If the fees are paid successfully, an applicant will get a confirmation code. This code is unique for every application, so you can send it to our support team in order to find out your application status.

The result of processing will arrive in the form of a PDF document via email. It is recommended to make a paper copy of your approved Qatar e-Visa and take it to the entry port, as the border officer will request it together with your valid passport.
