How to apply for Haaya card

Have you purchased tickets for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ yet? After buying tickets, application for a Hayya Card or Fan ID will be essential as it is a mandatory requirement to attend matches for local and international match attendees.

The Hayya Card will also act as an entry permit to Qatar for international visitors regardless of purpose and will be the only means to enter within the duration of 1 November 2022 till 1 January 2023. The regulation is applicable to GCC nationals and residents. The Hayya Card will also provide a number of benefits, including free public transport for ticket holders on match days. Match attendance would require the Hayya card along with your match ticket.

  • Your application may be amended via the Hayya portal. However, you cannot amend an application which is in progress.
