Here's your guide to booking your accommodation!

Hayya Card

After purchasing the match tickets, it is mandatory for fans to apply for a Hayya Card. This card will act as an entry permit to the country for international visitors. It also gives them other benefits, including free public transport for ticket holders on match days. Check out our guide here.

  • There are currently no limits to the number of nights match ticket holders can book. However, bookings should align with the match attendance dates.
  • You are welcome to book accommodation via hotel/holiday websites or other means.
  • It is possible to transfer accommodation from one guest to another with an admin fee of QR 100 (US$ 27.47).
