Qatar waives visas for South Africans

Qatar’s tourism authorities have announced that they will allow visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries – including South Africa – effective immediately.

Citizens of these 80 countries no longer need to apply or pay for a visa. Instead, a multi-entry waiver will be issued free-of-charge at the port of entry, upon presentation of a valid passport with a minimum validity of six months and a confirmed onward or return ticket.

South African travellers are eligible for a 30-day visa valid from the date of issue. The visa entitles the holder to spend 30 days in Qatar, during either a single trip or on multiple trips. There is also an option to apply for an extension of the waiver for an additional 30 days (multiple-entry waiver).

No visa is good news for South Africans wanting to take advantage of Qatar Airways’ offer of complimentary hotel stays and/or city tours on qualifying air fares. Ask your Sure Travel consultant for details, or call 0861 47 48 49.
