Overstaying foreign nationals will face heavy fines and deportation. The visa fee is about 16 pounds and must be paid through credit or debit card.

    I am employed by an Oman company working in the Gulf Region. I am required to work in Doha for periods of up to 3 months. Can I get a 2 year multi-entry visa issued in Oman with a 3 month limit for each stay

      Hi Paul, working in Doha (even if you are employed by an Oman company) will necessitate that you secure a working/residency permit in addition to the visa. All application for work permits and residency should be submitted straight to the Ministry of
      Interior in Qatar through you sponsor. The validity of the visa and working/residency permits are determined by immigration officers in Qatar.
