Have you ever wondered where all the mail that comes into Qatar is going and why doesn't it get delivered to your doorstep here in Qatar, as it does in many other countries? Well, the system in Qatar is a little different and we're here to explain just that to you!

Postal services in Qatar are undertaken by Qatar Post (Q-Post). Qatar Post is the national provider of postal services in Qatar. It has over 30 branches, providing domestic and international services. In Qatar, there are no postcodes or zip codes. All mail is delivered through a PO Box or post office boxes. Since there are no postal addresses in Qatar, you must rent out a PO Box in order to receive your mails.
