Visa and Travel Tips

• Ensure the validity of the passport to the countries to which you are travelling, because the airport passport department does not stop travel to it, but some airlines and countries do not accept travelers if their passport validity is less than 6 or 3 months.
• One should leave the country within 7 days after canceling his residence permit; otherwise, he will be fined 10 QAR per day.
• Visit Visas: Make sure the duration of stay in the country from the sticker that is put with the stamp in the passport, as there is a fine of 200 QAR per day in case of overstay.
