Qatar: Non-ticketed fans can attend FIFA World Cup after group stage

Non-ticketed fans can enter Qatar to attend the FIFA World Cup after the group stage has concluded.

The ‘Early December’ feature, which allows fans without tickets to apply for a Hayya Card, has become valid after midnight on December 2. Fans will need to show proof of accommodation and pay an entry fee of QR500 to obtain the Hayya Card and enter the country, while children under 12 will not be charged.

However, ticket holders for matches after December 2 will not be required to pay QR500.

Fans who pay the entry fee and purchase the World Cup tickets later will not be eligible for a refund. After paying the QR500 entry fee and confirming their accommodation, visitors will receive an entry permit to Qatar via email.

Travellers must complete the Hayya Card application process to board a flight or enter through the Abu Samra land border without the entry permit. Hayya Card holders are able to stay in Qatar until January 23, 2023

The Hayya Card is mandatory for fans of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. It provides access to stadiums with a valid match ticket, entry to the FIFA Fan Festival and free public transport.
