Updated December 2022
Football fans in Dubai are buzzing with energy, booking their tickets and hotels via World Cup travel packages, and gearing up to attend the biggest football tournament, the FIFA World Cup 2022, which is being held in Doha, Qatar, this year. To further facilitate and entertain World Cup enthusiasts in the country, NH Dubai The Palm is all set to be the first football-themed hotel in the UAE.
Please note: Effective today, Qatar’s Ministry of Interior has announced that Qatari citizens and GCC residents will be allowed to enter the country without a Hayya card. Only non-GCC tourists and visitors attending the World Cup matches will require the Hayya card.
