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.
The main post office is in Doha and is situated on the Doha Corniche. To set up a PO Box in Qatar, it is necessary to complete an application form. This application form is available in all post offices or even online.
YES! There is a way you CAN get mail delivered to your doorstep here in Qatar, and the process is fairly simple. With Qatar Post’s Home Delivery Services, you can enjoy the convenience of having mail that comes into your PO Box delivered straight to your doorstep.
1. The first step is to get a PO Box subscription (as mentioned above).
2. Next comes getting a subscription for Home Delivery Services.
The Home Delivery Services option is available to anyone with a PO Box subscription.
The Home Delivery Services ensures that your mail is kept safe and sealed.
If you decide to move home within Qatar, your personal PO Box stays the same, but you need to inform Qatar Post of your new address.
The postal delivery can either be scheduled or sent to you on a regular basis.
