Situated halfway along the West Coast of the Arabian Gulf and east of the Arabian Peninsula is the beautiful State of Qatar full of rich history, beauty and culture. Combining old world hospitality with cosmopolitan sophistication, Qatar allows you to enjoy rich cultural tapestry, new experiences and adventures. Visit Doha Corniche, which offers spectacular views of the city or take a stroll down Souq Waqif and experience an authentic taste of traditional architecture, culture and food.
Australian passport holders can apply for a 30-day visa upon arrival in Qatar. The current cost is QR 55 which is approx. A$20. Recently new free Transit Visa has been introduced for travellers flying Qatar to allow passengers to experience Qatar for a short stopover (between 5 and 96 hours).
Tipping within Qatar is similar to those done elsewhere in the Western World. Generally, a 10% service fee is included onto the bill; if not however, the same amount is considered adequate. Drivers and guides usually appreciate tips.
