Doha: Qatar has announced the Hayya Card programme and launched its accommodation booking website for fans attending this year’s FIFA World Cup, which will take place from November 21 to December 18.
After purchasing FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tickets, fans should apply for a Hayya Card, which will be mandatory to attend matches. The Hayya Card will provide a number of benefits, including free public transport for ticket holders on match days. It will also act as an entry permit to Qatar for international visitors.
Match ticket holders are able to apply for a Hayya Card via Qatar2022.qa and the ‘Hayya to Qatar 2022’ mobile application (download links: iOS & Android).
Fans can now book accommodation via the dedicated Host Country Accommodation Portal which will offer various options throughout the year such as apartments, villas and cruise ship cabins. Fans can also book accommodation through traditional means, such as hotel and holiday accommodation websites.
Qatar is preparing to host the most compact version of the FIFA World Cup in modern history. All the stadiums are within close proximity of central Doha – helping to cut travel costs for fans while significantly reducing the event’s carbon footprint.
Fans should note that COVID-19 requirements will be dependent on the latest guidelines from Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health and will be announced in due course.
