I will be "stuck" in Doha (Qatar Airlines) for about 8 hours during the night. Is it possible to leave the airport and visit Qatar for a few hours with a standard (Belgium) international passport?

@greg121: consider posting that as an answer too. (You'd get the points, and this question wouldn't be left "open".) – Jonik Nov 26 '12 at 21:54
