Oh my God! Fifa World Cup is here and what a welcoming nation Qatar has proved to be. Qatar is one of the safest countries in the world and has a negligible rate of crime. It is also a country that has engaged in very little military action and has not forcibly exported its ideology abroad. For an international spectator, the process begins with buying match tickets. FIFA.com Club account had an hours-long queue in the online waiting lounge after which you can create a Fifa fan account.

Qatar is after all a small place like Jeddah, prior to traveling to the State of Qatar, visitors are required to make arrangements for their lodging.

- Book accommodation through the official accommodation agent of Qatar2022.qa/book
- Plan a stay with family and friends. A Qatari family member or friend must register as a host through the Accommodation > Host Family & Friends option available on the Hayya portal
- Scheduling a Matchday Visit. Travel dates must be registered via the Haya Portal Accommodation > Visit on Match Day option.

Please be aware that all visitors registered under your Ticket Application Number will need to apply for their own digital Hayya Cards, which are necessary for entering stadiums together with match tickets.
Umra Visa Free
According to a Saudi Arabian declaration, Muslim World Cup ticket holders would be entitled to a free visa in order to do Umrah. According to the authorities, the state will cover all costs associated with obtaining an electronic visa for Hayya card holders. However, according to the Saudi Gazette, which quoted Khaled Al-Shammari, assistant director-general of the general department of visas at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it is required to purchase medical insurance through the visa platform.
Al-Shammari revealed in an interview with Al-Ekhbariya that this visa will be valid for entry into Saudi Arabia 10 days before the commencement of the World Cup, which begins on November 11 and runs until the final day on December 18, 2022.
The holder of the multiple-entry visa may enter and exit Saudi Arabia at any time; they are not required to enter the nation through Qatar. One shall enter Qatar through the municipal city of the Abu Samra border. If you are traveling by road in a personal vehicle, you would need a Car Permit. Whereas, if you are traveling from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, then you can travel by bus as there will be 55 SAPTCO buses daily commuting in and out of Qatar for free.
Why Qatar Should Not be Allowed?
Qatar hosting the WorldCup is sports washing at its finest. It will be too hot and dry even during the winter. Dua Lipa will not be performing and Denmark will be protesting by changing the colors of their team’s kit. Yes, Europe and America are built on the efforts of slaves and migrant workers but that was a long time ago and they have since rectified most of those issues. Qatar did it in again 2010. A lot of people lost their lives because of conditions that could’ve been better. You’ve gotta watch the documentary called “Fifa Uncovered” on Netflix. What a crazy documentary about the proper mafia. Some people are in jail, others are banned to do anything associated with Football.
Qatar is an Arab place so let’s call them out on their corruption. Even Sepp Blatter, ex-Fifa president, says that it was a mistake to give it to Qatar. How Qatar won the bid is a problem. How they constructed the entire world cup city is a problem. How it’s mismanaged and how they don’t even have enough space is a problem. How their country is not equipped to handle such a mega event is the problem. Yay all those who already committed human rights violations en mass! Nuclear bombers, Nazis, Beginners of Slavery, and Invaders of Muslim countries! But FIFA – the corrupt organization – let’s not hold them accountable at all for being corrupt. All bull-Sh*t!!!
For example, the past experience of the Russian World Cup is not very fond, and far when a lot many Pakistanis got stuck at the airports. But UEFA and FIFA have banned Russia for war crimes towards Ukraine not for it being a bad host. Britain is also famous for imposing itself around the WORLD. They’re laced with blood. So is the US – they haven’t even fought racism yet. South America – I can not discern any difference. Such hue and cry were spread in Fifa 2014 Brazil as well.
The best part is the opening ceremony will be performed with the recitation of Surah Rehman from the Holy Quran. Ahadith have been heralded. There will be no booze or alcohol except dedicated booths of My Buds. Qatar has already banned the wearing of short clothes. Niki Minaj, Mariam Al Faris, and Shakira will not be performing. If you have an issue with Qatar hosting the World Cup please stop being a hypocrite and have the consistency of being outraged at other nations hosting sporting events by highlighting their indiscretions or philosophies.
