You can carry out your planned trip to Qatar by obtaining a Qatari visa. Foreign nationals can apply for short-term visas to Qatar (tourist visa, eVisa) for temporary reasons (tourism, business, cultural and other short-term purposes). If you need to stay in Qatar for a longer period for any reason, you can also apply for a Qatar residence permit after your arrival in Qatar.
If you are not a visa-exempted national or do not qualify for a visa on arrival, you can apply for an eVisa for Qatar (excluding citizens of Israel, Egypt, Kosovo and Palestine) for your trip.
An eVisa to Qatar is valid for 30 days and counts as a single entry visa. You can extend your Qatari eVisa for a further 30 days.
The employer is responsible for obtaining a work visa for each employee to be hired before he/she enters Qatar. It is possible for an employee to enter Qatar on a visitor's visa (Qatar visit visa), who may then apply for a work visa, although work must not commence before a work visa is obtained. It is the employer who will sponsor each employee.
The estimated average processing time for a work visa to Qatar is 2-4 weeks.
