The Qatari Riyal is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of $1 USD = 3.64 QAR which means that there is not a lot of variation between the best and worst rates on offer. It can sometimes be more beneficial to take US Dollars as well as or instead of Qatari Riyals, unless you find a particularly good deal, or your destination lies outside of the big city areas in Qatar where you will find it more difficult to pay in US Dollars. The average order value we have seen, between 1st August and 31st October 2013, is for £1400.
The exchange rate of the Qatari Riyal is quite stable due to its pegged status, and if you are a frequent traveller it is worth keeping hold of left over currency to use on your next trip. Alternatively, many currency buy back services will exchange Riyals back into Sterling on your return if you are not planning on going back to Qatar any time soon.
British citizens must pay for a visa upon arrival in Qatar and payment is accepted by credit card only.
If you applying for a residence permit you will be required to undergo medical examinations including blood tests and a chest X-ray to screen for certain diseases and testing positive may result in deportation.
