Family Visit Visa

Families of sponsored residents may enter Qatar on a short-term Family Visit Visa. The visa is valid for one month. However, relatives who wish to stay beyond one month may undergo a physical examination within the first 72 hours of arrival to apply for an extension.

The visa can be extended to cover a maximum of six months only (five extendable months for immediate family members and two months for second-degree relatives). Foreign employees who wish to bring their families to live in Qatar should refer to the Family Visa.
