Re                 :         6th YFC Middle East Conference Visa Information

Greetings of Peace!
We are now 51 days away for the much awaited 6 YFC Middle East Conference. And all of us here,
in YFC Qatar Family are very much excited to welcome all of you in this event. Thus, we would like to
inform you of the following Visa Information in order for you to travel in Qatar.

     1. GCC residents can obtain visa on arrival in Qatar. Whether they can obtain this depends on the
     designation of the visa. Those designated as CEO's, engineers, doctors, lawyers, accountants,
     managers & business owners will be able to get visa upon arrival at the Doha International Airport.
     The visa is valid for 14 days. Having a valid passport and visa in any GCC country for not less than
     six months is a precondition. Visa Fee is QR 100 (approx US$30).
     2. While we do our best to keep our visa information up to date, things can change rapidly. It is
     better to please check with your travel agent or with the Qatar Embassy in your country for
     pertinent/necessary visa information and requirement.
