A new agreement that involves Qatar Airways (QA) and Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) partnering with VFS Global will ensure travelers a safe, efficient way to process their visas.

VFS is the top name in visa processing services and the implementation of this system allows tourists to submit their tourist visa application, process the documents efficiently and securely and meet the quality standards expected by those visiting Qatar from different countries around the globe.

The VFS Global system provides a convenient, fast way for visitors to apply online, track the application process, and within 48 hours obtain the visa. Select international QA offices and partnering offices will allow passengers to apply directly.

“It is our intention to showcase the many tourism offerings that can be experienced here in our beloved country Qatar,” Akbar al-Baker, QA Group CEO, said. “This initiative is an improvement that we believe will lead to even greater numbers of visitors to Qatar to experience all that we have to offer.”

He went on to note that this year has seen a seven percent increase in GCC visitors within the first six months compared to the same time period from 2015. Qatar’s tourism is a large supporter to the national economy, al-Baker noted.

The agreement was reached in the presence of Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI).
