Excitement is growing for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with less than two weeks till the athletic event begins.

World Cups generally draw throngs of non-ticketed supporters who travel for the footballing festivities and the joyful mood, in addition to welcoming fans who were successful in obtaining match tickets for the competition. That didn't seem like it would be an option this year.

Here is all the information you require.

Can anyone travel to Qatar during the World Cup?

If a person has a ticket to an event or is traveling as part of the Hayya with Me (1+3) policy, they are eligible to fly to Qatar. As a result, visitors to Doha who have purchased tickets for at least one football game are now able to invite up to three non-ticketed friends or family members to go with them.

If visitors traveling under the program want to see any World Cup games while they are there, they must have an official ticket.

How do I apply for approval to visit Qatar during the tournament?

All international travelers need to apply for their own Hayya card.

If you don't have a match ticket, you'll need a voucher code from the main ticket holder to complete the online application.

Do I have to pay to enter Qatar during the World Cup?

Yes, there is a fee for the Hayya card. Applications cost QR504 ($137) per person, and this is applicable to everyone aged 12 and over.

Can children travel to Qatar for the World Cup?

Any age may travel without a ticket as long as they have their own passport. Existing Hayya cards can have dependents under the age of 18 added; application costs apply, but there are no fees to add children under the age of 12.

Can I take a shuttle flight to Qatar if I don't have a match-day ticket?

On the hundreds of shuttle flights that depart daily from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Oman, and locations all throughout Saudi Arabia, passengers who want to enter Qatar for less than a 24-hour period still require a Hayya card.

Non-ticketed travelers are welcome to travel on these shuttle flights but will also need a pre-approved Hayya card to enter the country.

Is it too late to book a hotel room in Qatar for the World Cup?

The world's largest football event, which will begin in Qatar in less than two weeks, is approaching.

Even though many hotels are fully booked for the event, reservations for lodging can still be made on the website of the official Accommodation Agency. Additionally, travelers have the option of making direct hotel, travel agency, or vacation rental bookings.

To accommodate visitors throughout the competition, World Cup organizers added a third cruise ship earlier this week. The MSC Opera will increase the number of staterooms available in Doha by 1,000.

What is the best way to watch a World Cup match without a ticket?

There will be large screens showing the matches at fan zones all across Qatar, so those without tickets can still see the action in Qatar.

In addition to music, food and drink stand, and other entertainment, the FIFA Fan Festival will be held in Al Bidda Park and Qetai-Fan Beach Fest, which is approximately ten minutes from the Lusail stadium, will also display live action.

A number of hotels, cafes, and restaurants will broadcast the games, and Al Maha Arena in Lusail is another location to watch them on a huge screen.
