Fans in Qatar can visit the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 booths at malls to learn more about the tournament and enjoy a range of family-friendly activities, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has said. The booths will be open at Doha Festival City, Mall of Qatar and Place Vendome from September 22 to October 5, from 2-10pm on weekdays and from 3-11pm on weekends. People can get information on tickets, how to plan their World Cup journey and Hayya Card, and enjoy family-friendly activities.
The programme was attended by a team of SC officials, including Rami Khashmelmous and Osama ElShamy. The second centre will be opened at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) in West Bay where fans will be soon able to collect their Hayya cards. Only fans who have purchased a match ticket can apply for the card online through www.qatar2022.qa
Those who lose a physical version of the Hayya Card can get a replacement at either of these centres.
The officials explained that the Hayya Card will be valid from November 1 to January 23 and can be used for multiple entries and to enter other countries that have announced special entry plans for fans during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
Also, it was explained that a non-ticketed fan who is invited by a Hayya Card holder should be added as a dependent if the invitee is below the age of 18.
The officials said digital cards can be used to enter Qatar and other countries while fans can directly collect the physical cards at the Hayya Service Centres. Only the applicant can receive the card at the centre, they added.
Further, the officials said accommodation can be booked through other channels in addition to the official one, and the applicants need to upload the booking confirmation document while applying for a Hayya Card.
