DOHA, 10 June – Residents planning to host friends and families who have approved match tickets and Hayya digital cards for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will need to register their property on the Hayya portal via the Alternative Accommodation tab.
In six months, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will be underway and fans from across the globe will fly into Doha for the tournament, which will be held from November 21 to December 18.
Thousands of fans are planning to stay with family and friends in Qatar during the event, which will take place at eight stadiums and be the most compact edition of the tournament in modern history.
Every fan travelling to Qatar for the tournament needs to apply for the Hayya digital card. This will act as an entry permit to Qatar and offer a host of benefits, including free public transport on match days.
Qatar residents who are planning to attend matches will also need to apply for Hayya. Local residents who wish to host ticketed family and friends – but not attend matches – do not need to apply for Hayya. Qatari citizens/residents who wish to enter Qatar during the tournament are not required to apply for Hayya.
As part of the Hayya approval process, fans will need to confirm where they are staying during the tournament and if they plan to stay with family or friends, their hosts have to register their property on the Hayya portal via the Alternative Accommodation tab.
Qatar residents planning to host ticketed family and friends should select the ‘Alternative Accommodation’ tab on the Hayya portal, add Qatar ID details, the property name, zone, street, building and unit and select if they own or rent the property. Each host must be aged 18 or over.
After a property has been added, hosts will have to fill the name, passport number and nationality of each guest. Guests simply need to travel to Qatar using the passport details added in the Alternative Accommodation section.
Every FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 ticket holder, including Qatari citizens and residents will need to apply for Hayya digital card. — The Peninsula
