Traveling to Qatar?

Getting to WC country is relatively easy, and there are several direct routes from Oslo Airport.

Norwegian citizens must have an ordinary passport with a minimum validity of six months when entering Qatar. There is no need to apply for a visa in advance, and entry stamps are issued free of charge at passport control, says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also pointed out that entry regulations can be changed at short notice, and it is the individual’s responsibility to have valid documents and know the regulations that apply.

Is it safe there?

Opinions are divided about it. Qatar is a conservative Sunni Muslim country, where, among other things, homosexuality is prohibited. But organizers have demonstrated multiple times that everyone is welcome in the country as long as you respect there culture and traditions.

NRK has contacted FIFA about the safety of visitors who have a homosexual orientation.

– FIFA is confident that everyone traveling to the World Cup in Qatar will be able to enjoy the tournament in a safe and friendly environment. FIFA is taking active action together with the Qatari authorities and relevant actors, including supporters’ groups, to ensure an especially welcoming environment for LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) supporters and guests visiting the tournament, FIFA wrote in a statement to NRK.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs mentioned two other dangers during the visit to Qatar: Terrorism and traffic. All countries in the region are considered potential terror targets for Islamic extremists, and high speed and reckless driving will lead to a high incidence of traffic accidents, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

It is also not recommended to appear drunk in public places, as the chances of being arrested increase.


Qatar has received a lot of criticism for human rights violations before the World Cup.


Why Winter WC?

The reason the World Cup is played in winter is the temperature in Qatar. In June and July, when the World Cup is usually played, thermometers can show temperatures of up to 50 degrees. November and December are more likely, so the temperature in Qatar is usually between 18 and 26 degrees.
