Cyprus Among 80 Countries Allowed Visa-Free Entry To Qatar

Cyprus Among 80 Countries Allowed Visa-Free Entry To Qatar

Qatar announced on Wednesday, August 9, a programme to allow visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries – including Cyprus, Greece and Turkey.

This is to encourage air transport and tourism amid a two-month boycott imposed on the Gulf state by its neighbours, In-Cyprus reports.

The nationals from the 80 countries in Europe, US and elsewhere will now receive tourist visas on arrival to the gas-rich country which hosts the soccer World Cup in 2022.

“The visa exemption scheme will make Qatar the most open country in the region,” Hassan al-Ibrahim, Chief Tourism Development officer at Qatar Tourism Authority told reporters at a press conference in Doha.

Oil giant Saudi Arabia along with Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates imposed a boycott on Qatar on June 5 and cut off all transport links with the country after accusing it of supporting terrorism and of close ties to Iran.

Doha denies the charges. Since the boycott began, Qatar has sought to build up its diplomatic and trade ties beyond the Gulf region.

The visa scheme is just the latest in a series of measures aimed at preparing Qatar for greater economic independence in the long term.

Qatar’s World Cup organising committee has said the Arab sanctions will not affect preparations for the World Cup.
