Hayya service centres guide process

The Hayya Card or Fan ID is compulsory for those attending the World Cup tournament and festivities. It also allows fans to use public transportation for free during the tournament.

The Hayya Card comes in digital and physical formats. The digital one can be acquired through the Hayya to Qatar 2022 mobile application. The physical Hayya Card may be acquired by requesting it through your Hayya profile or at one of the Hayya Service Centers.

Hayya Card as entry permit for international fans

International fans entering Qatar for the tournament will be receiving a separate entry permit along with their Hayya Card which will allow them to enter Qatar starting from 1 November 2022.

Those with approved International Hayya Cards will be receiving the entry permit to their registered email addresses. The entry permit will be a PDF document which will state the entry and exit dates, along with personal details.

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has confirmed that the last date to enter Qatar with a Hayya entry permit will be 23 December 2022 and the last date to exit will be 23 January 2023.

The entry permit will be a requirement for international visitors regardless of purpose and will be the only means to enter from 1 November 2022 till 23 December 2022.

The regulation is also applicable to GCC nationals and GCC residents.

The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team has put together a quick guide to explain the processes and services provided by the Hayya Service Centres.
