In order to attract tourists to Qatar, the MoI recently altered visa procedures in favour of visitors. While some countries were allowed to visit Qatar without a visa, several others were made eligible for visa on arrival.
In another move, the government has decided to allow tourists to extend their stay based on certain conditions.
Now, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) has made visa extension even simpler by launching a section within its website for the same.
The 30 day visa on-arrival visa system can be extended online for another 30 days via the MoI website.
The 90-day on-arrival tourist visa (for citizens of 34 countries) has a validity of 180 days with a multi-entry option and is not extendable, the 30-day visa (for nationals of 47 countries) can be extended for another 30 days.
