The decision to grant entry visas for Qatar is entirely at the discretion of the country’s immigration authorities. The granting of a visa does not guarantee entry in Qatar, the final decision is made by immigration officers at the point of entry.

The Applicant’s passport should be valid for atleast 6 months with minimum 2 blank pages from the date of entry into Qatar.
Due to an expansion in fake visas to Qatar, many Indian passengers were deported back in the past. In order to control the fake visa issuance and any fraudulent activities; airlines and sponsors double check the Qatar Visa and Air tickets before departure and only after checking the visa authenticity, airlines update visa message in the respective PNR.
The Airline verifies the Qatar Visa and only then updates an Ok to Board message against the PNR. Airlines generally will take at least 24-48 working hours to update PNR after issuance of the Qatar VISA.
Your airline mandates you to update OTB message in the PNR primarily to confirm the legitimacy of your Qatar Visa as well as other relevant travel documents, thereby eliminating the chances of travellers making entry to the country with a forged visa and subsequently getting deported by the Qatar immigration.
In such circumstances, your airline has the complete right to disapprove your boarding. To resolve this issue at the earliest, do not delay getting in touch with our Qatar Visa Experts.
Unfortunately, the Qatar Immigration authorities do not give reasons for rejecting visa applications, so we cannot provide specific reasons why your application was unsuccessful.
Yes, you can reapply if your visa application is rejected.

A tiny peninsula jutting out into the Persian Gulf from the eastern side of Saudi Arabia, Qatar is a sovereign Arab country located in the Middle East. Read moreSituated on the northern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, Qatar shares land borders only with Saudi Arabia, with the rest of the country being surrounded by the Persian Gulf. From magnificent shopping malls to universities to plush Qatari hotels and futuristic buildings, Qatar has plenty to offer to its visitors. Doha is the capital and the largest city of Qatar. Doha is certainly the heart and soul of Qatar. No other city in the country comes close to its gleaming splendour. The Corniche in Doha is the center of Doha’s entertainment district. The Doha Zoo, Cultural Village, shopping malls, and its amazing museums (like the National Museum and Museum of Islamic Arts) make up most of the attractions in the city. Outside of Doha, the desert area provides a spectacular landscape for safaris, which have become an important part of the country’s tourism industry. Of course, no trip to Qatar is complete without experience a local souq. Souq Waqif is a magnificent destination, where tourists can try their hand at bargaining. Show less

We currently only process Tourist and Business Visas. Kindly contact the Embassy for the following Qatar visa applications.
A special category of the tourist visa is the Transit visa issued to persons who want to want to travel to another Country through the country.
The Student visa is a temporary visa issued to persons who want to run an academic program in the country. The visa is valid until the course duration elapses. Applicants for this category of visa must have already received provisional admission prior to their student visa application. Also, a letter from the academic institution is the proof that the applicant can apply for the visa.
The work visas are granted to persons who want to work in Qatar. Like the student visa, the applicants for the work visa must already have secured a job in the country before being eligible to apply.
Applicant’s employer would need to apply for a NOC Certificate. Without this certificate, entry into Qatar would be disallowed.
Applicants, on getting into the country must apply for a residence visa. On arrival, using a single-entry visa, the applicant needs to apply for a residency visa and according to the employer’s specification, undergo some certain medical tests including HIV and TB.
The family visa differs from the visit visa. It issued to persons who have a family in Qatar. The family visa does not expire as long as the sponsor is still living in the country and can still sponsor the applicant. The sponsor would need to apply for a residence permit for the coming family member(s).
