The authorities in Qatar have recently announced new exit and entry regulations for FIFA World Cup 2022. Effective 1 November 2022, the authorities in Qatar have suspensed entry for visitors into the country until 23 December 2022.

From 1 November 2022, visitors will only be eligible to enter into Qatar provided they are holding a Hayya Card. Moreover, as reported by the Office of the Commander of the Tournament Security Operations, Col. Jassim Al Sayed, Hayya Card holders allowed entry into Qatar during this period can also stay in the country until 23 January 2023.

Furthermore, as stated by the authorities, entry of any visitor without the Hayya Card to Qatar through its air, land and marine borders will be suspended until 23 December 2022. The decision, however, will not affect exempted categories such as Qatari citizens, and holders of a residence permit.

The Ministry of Interior, further, called upon all visitors to abide by the laws and regulations issued and not to violate them in order to ensure the successful organization of the upcoming World Cup event in the country.
