FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is a unique event that presents Principals with new challenges. Fortis has done the planning for you.
The FIFA World Cup will be hosted in the single city of Doha, Qatar (pronounced Cut-TAR) instead of the traditional multi-event.
The World Cup will double Qatar’s 3 million population within Doha’s 51 square mile radius.
The challenges and risks will be astronomical. Fortis offers the expertise and experience necessary for the World Cup’s most discerning attendees.
Secure Private Travel in Doha
Hayya Cards are needed for Qatar and World Cup entry.
Almost half of Qatar’s (Cut-TAR) 3 million people live within its capital city of Doha. Of its population, only about 400,000 are ethnically Qatari; this interconnected group maintains control of most of the wealth, laws, and government. A more liberal Islamic country in comparison to some neighboring countries, conservative dress is still expected, especially for women.
Traveling in Doha
Doha functions with one major airport, Hamad International Airport (DOH), and can accommodate up to 66 runway movements per hour with a terminal capacity of 3,700 arriving passengers per hour and 4,200 departing passengers per hour. Doha International Airport (DIA) has recently been re-opened and can accommodate 10 total runway movements per hour with a terminal capacity of 2,000 arriving passengers and 2,000 departing passengers per hour.
With limited options for public transportation, the primary mode of transport in the city is by car. Highway expansion and upgrades have been a major focus leading up to this event.
About the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022
With Doha as Qatar’s only major city, the World Cup’s 3 million ticket holders will all find themselves in this centralized location. Lusail Stadium, located just north of the city, is a new stadium and will host the World Cup Final.
During the World Cup, Qatar will be outsourcing security forces from other countries, namely Turkey, to support the influx. It is possible to be searched by a guard that only speaks Turkish and has little concern about the experience of the guests.
From November 1 to December 23, a normal visa will not be accepted for entry into Qatar. Rather, all World Cup ticket holders must purchase a Hayya (High-yah) card. Proof of a World Cup ticket is required for registration, and the Hayya will also be required along with a ticket to enter the games.
