The British Embassy in Doha, Qatar, recently announced that Qatar was officially selected for the UK’s Super Priority Visa Service on 9 July 2024, Wego reports. This major announcement was made on the Embassy’s official ‘X’  page (formerly ‘Twitter’).


The Super Priority Visa service program allows applicants to receive a decision within two business days. This paves the way for Qatari citizens to experience a faster and more efficient service. 

Customers can avail of this service when submitting their applications at the visa application center after submitting the electronic application. However, please note that this service only applies to certain types of visas and applicants are asked to pay additional charges, typically EUR 500, to request this swift service.

Moreover, the Embassy’s ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) post also noted that 20,000 Qatari citizens have registered for the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) system, allowing travel to the UK without a visa. Visa applicants are reminded that domestic workers must be paid the UK National Minimum Wage and may need to provide proof during the visa application process.
