International fans with approved Hayya Card applications will receive an entry permit to the State of Qatar via email. The Hayya Card will provide access to stadiums, as well as free public transport for the duration of the tournament and numerous discounts.
Every Hayya Card application will need to confirm a user’s accommodation – whether the booking is through the Qatar Accommodation Agency (QAA) or a third party.
Fans are also reminded that the largest variety of accommodation is available from the QAA, including cruise ship cabins, apartments, villas, hotels, and fan villages. The QAA features a variety of options, ranging from $80 per room, per night, based on two-person occupancy. New inventory is now available via the QAA and will continue to be released over the coming weeks – fans are encouraged to keep checking the portal.
Fans also have the option of booking accommodation from third parties, including hotels and holiday rental websites.
