Do I need a transit visa to collect and check luggage at Doha?
I bought a flight through doha on SkyPicker. Though both flights are with Qatar airlines, the emailed itinerary insists I will need to collect and check my luggage in Doha. This did surprise me.
As a US citizen I believe I will qualify for a travel visa with proof of return travel if necessary. But I wonder if I will need them to collect my luggage and re-check them? I have a little less than 4 hours between flights.
If I need a travel visa, I believe there is a fee of 40 pounds. Can I pay in US dollars, and what should I bring? Should I just get the visa there or do it online?
(after some review I see that using SkyPicker was/is a mistake. I thought I tried comparing prices purchasing the tickets directly, but after rechecking I must have searched incorrectly misjudging skypicker.com)
