Malaysians who are planning to travel to Qatar no longer have to pay for visa, following an agreement with the Qatar government.
Instead, Malaysians would be granted the visa on arrival facility, allowing them to stay in Qatar for 60 days and an extra 30 days upon application.
This exemption is aimed at encouraging more Malaysians to visit Qatar, and also an appreciation of Malaysia’s technical and professional contribution to Qatar’s development.
Muslims who plan to perform umrah can also take advantage of the free visa, stopping by at Qatar while on the way to Makkah or Madinah.
As of now, Malaysians are required to pay 100 Qatar Riyal for 30 days of stay, and an additional fee of another 100 Qatar Riyal for an extended 30 days application.
Time to get down to research and see what’s in store for us in Qatar!
