Qatari government officials announced that the validity period for Hayya cards has been extended until Feb. 24.
Additional Information: The Hayya card was created as an entry permit into Qatar during the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament. The government is extending the validity of the Hayya card so visa holders can attend the AFC Asian Cup Qatar in January as well as other state-sponsored events.
BAL Analysis: The Hayya card allows immigration officials to streamline the entry process for fans and visitors in accordance with applicable visa rules and regulations. This extension should make it easier for travelers to arrive and attend additional sporting events and activities hosted by the state.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice Group.
