The U.S. Embassy in Qatar has announced that it will be closed for routine American Citizens Services during the 2022 World Cup.
Additional Information: Those who are traveling to Qatar for the World Cup are reminded that they must obtain a Hayya Card, hold a valid recruitment visa or work permit or be traveling for humanitarian reasons to enter the country. To apply for the Hayya Card, foreign nationals can download the Hayya to Qatar 2022 mobile application or visit this website. U.S. citizens are encouraged to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) if traveling to Qatar.
BAL Analysis: U.S. citizens who are living in Qatar and are in need of a new passport should renew their passport as soon as possible to avoid delays and complications. The U.S. Embassy in Qatar will continue to provide updated guidance for U.S. citizens traveling to the country for the 2022 World Cup. BAL will provide more information as it becomes available.
