International fans travelling to Qatar for this year’s FIFA World Cup™ now have the option to invite up to three non-ticketed fans to attend the tournament.
The ‘Hayya with Me (1+3)’ feature allows international Hayya Card holders to invite up to three non-ticketed fans to attend the FIFA World Cup™, which will be held from 20 November to 18 December. The feature only applies to approved Hayya Card holders aged 18 or above who applied using a FIFA World Cup™ ticket number.
The non-ticketed fans applying through a Hayya with Me (1+3) voucher can be of any age. They must hold a valid passport and cannot be Qatar ID holders. They must also confirm their accommodation in Qatar during the tournament.
Each Hayya with Me (1+3) applicant will need to pay a non-refundable QR 500 fee. The charge will not apply to children under 12.
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.
Note: Visit visas will be suspended from 1 November 2022 and Hayya Cards will be the only entry permit to Qatar during the period of 1 November till 1 January 2023.
The Hayya Card will provide access to free public transport for the duration of the tournament and numerous discounts. Hayya Card holders with match tickets will be able to access stadiums.
Every Hayya Card application will need to confirm a user’s accommodation – whether the booking is through the Qatar Accommodation Agency (QAA) or a third party.
Fans are also reminded that the largest variety of accommodation is available from the QAA, including cruise ship cabins, apartments, villas, hotels and fan villages. The QAA features a variety of options, ranging from $80 per room, per night, based on two-person occupancy. New inventory is now available via the QAA and will continue to be released over the coming weeks – fans are encouraged to keep checking the portal.
Fans also have the option of booking accommodation from third parties, including hotels and holiday rental websites.
