Useful Facts

Flights and Transfers

Direct flights from Dublin to Doha last approximately 9 hours.

Visa Requirements

30-day visas are issued on arrival to British passport holders and cost about £20. Please check with the embassy for up to date visa requirements for Qatar.

Language

Arabic is the official language, however, due to the proportion of immigrant workers and expats, English is a very common second language and acts as the lingua franca among the different nationalities.

Transportation

Buses, taxis and limousines are the only forms of public transport but they are completely adequate for travelling around Qatar. Unfortunately demand for taxis far outweighs supply, so it can take a long time to get one if you’re away from the major locations.

Currency

The Qatari riyal is the official currency.

Electricity

240V/50Hz standard UK plug

Vaccinations and Health

Visit your GP or specialist travel clinic for up-to-date information and travel advice regarding Qatar. Be sure to drink plenty of water – this is the desert, after all.
