The Consular Affairs Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has issued a number of guidelines and advice to Qatari nationals wishing to travel abroad.

The Department stressed the need to ensure the validity of passports and identity cards in case of travel (not less than six months), obtaining visas and entry visas from countries requiring prior visas, compliance with host country regulations and laws, compliance with travel requirements and international aviation regulations and non-carrying of prohibited materials.

The Department noted that the passport number and personal identification number should be kept in mind when contacting the mission in the event of any loss, and not to carry large sums of money during travel with the head of the family (distribute among accompanying family members), and stressed the need to keep the money exchange receipt.
