Doha Transit Visa: Not required.. Visa On Arrival: You can have VOA if you want to go outside the airport in DOH for $30. Airport is nice and full facilities are available (duty free, food, place to sleep...etc). The city is nice with lots of activities. I suggest visiting The Museum of Islamic Art. Doha has many malls and modern shopping centers. Dubai ...

The Msheireb Enrichment Centre is located on a medium sized barge moored off the Corniche, just west of the Sheraton Hotel (the triangular pyramid shaped hotel near the north eastern edge of the Corniche) The exhibition is sponsored by ...

You can drink in your room or in a bar, basically anywhere alcohol is a available you can drink, no alcohol, no drink, that includes walking with a drink in public. The reason behind this is the public resistance to "westernizing" the country, so government is trying to make everyone happy as much as possible, people who drink can drink in designated ...

The new Hamad International airport in Doha isn't quite finished yet, so things may change over the next year or so. As an example, in November 2014 the Qatar Airways First Class lounge isn't yet open (not that it'll matter much for your situation, but still...!) If you are flying Qatar Airways in Business Class, then you'll have access to the very ...

No, you can not. Indian citizens require a visa to enter Qatar, and this visa must be obtained in advance (Citizens from a small number of countries can obtain them on arrival, but not India). The only exception this is if your layover is greater than 8 hours and you have a prearranged "Stopover Paid by Carrier" (STPC), where the airline provides you with ...

I am afraid Philippine citizens are not eligible for Qatar visa-on-arrival, unless they are currently residents of one of the GCC countries. Quoting from the visa webpage of the Qatar E-government website: Countries that have a visa on arrival arrangement with Qatar The United States, Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, ...

Water Taxis are Late There are talks about a water taxi service currently being set up. The reference I found talks about it being supposed to start in 2012, but being delayed to the end of 2014. To date, this is still a work in progress. The head of state-backed transportation firm Mowasalat has said a new QR30 million (US$8.24 million) water transit ...

Doha's airport security and customs page is too specific for my liking. Excerpts from three different sections: Your hand-baggage will be security screened for prohibited items before you can proceed to the baggage claim area. These will be confiscated and you won’t be able to retrieve them at any time. • Weapons, firearms and ammunition • ...

Per the official Priority Pass site, no, there isn't. Not aware of any lounges that your Mastercard would let you into either, these tend to be regional anyway (= card must be issued in the Middle East to qualify).

There is! The Arab Museum of Modern Art (MATHAF) holds a fair sized permanent collection of Arabic and Islamic modern and contemporary art works, along with changing special exhibitions. Permanent exhibits are free, as are seeing the sculptures outside, while special exhibitions are fairly cheap. The museum is located east of the city centre, at ...

There will be absolutely no issue, as none of the transit countries have airside transit visa requirements; so you are never actually "entering the country". In other words - as long as your passport allows you entry into your destination country (either by your citizenship or because it has a visa stamped) you will be issued a boarding pass on the start of ...

Yes you can, if you hold a resident visa in one of the GCC countries (in your case UAE), you will be able to visit all the other GCC countries (except Saudi) as long as you are (for Qatar): Currently employed in one of the [201 authorized professions]. GCC residence permit valid for at least 6 months. Original passport valid for at least six ...

Whether or not you intend to leave the airport, you will likely be required to go through immigration in Dubai. According to http://www.emirates.com/english/plan_book/essential_information/visa_passport_information/uae_visas.aspx, citizens of some countries require a visa in order to enter the UAE (Qatar is part of the GCC so citizens of Qatar do not need a ...
