Last updated: October 2022

This year, the middle eastern nation of Qatar is hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022. The World Cup begins on November 20 and continues until December 18. The 32 national teams will play 64 matches across eight venues during the most important football championship in the world.

The Organizing Supreme Committee expects more than a million fans to travel to Qatar for the event. Therefore, the government of Qatar has launched a mandatory Fan ID called the FIFA World Cup Hayya Card Qatar. This is a travel document to facilitate entry into the country and attend matches for local and international fans.

Find out everything you need to know about the Hayya Card Qatar and other entry requirements for Qatar during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. When you're ready, iVisa can help you apply online.

What is a Hayya Card (Fan ID)?

As part of the World Cup preparations, the Hayya card is part of the country’s security strategy. The digital Hayya Card, also known as a Fan ID, is a mandatory entry permit that allows entry into Qatar and access to stadiums.

This personalized and secure identification document has the cardholder’s name, photo, status, match tickets, Hayya Card number, passport number, QR Code, and other important information linked to it. The electronic registration is straightforward and can be done online in just a few minutes.

Who must apply for the Hayya Card?

Everyone who will enter Qatar or wants to attend World Cup football matches needs a Hayya Card. This includes Qatar residents who have a match ticket and those who wish to visit Qatar during this time but are not match ticket holders.

The iVisa experts can help you obtain the Hayya Card as long as you have a match ticket. However, if you currently do not have a match ticket but still wish to enter the country during the Qatar World Cup event, keep an eye on the online Hayya platform, where you can find updates on registering your Hayya account soon.

Validity of Hayya Card

The Qatar Hayya Card is a Fan ID issued by the government of Qatar for those attending the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. This document replaces an entry visa but is only valid for the duration of the tournament.

You should apply for a Hayya Card as soon as you have confirmed your match ticket purchase. The process is the same, whatever the port of entry into Qatar.
