How to get a visa to Qatar if you are a Filipino citizen or a Philippine passport holder? The requirements and procedures for Qatar visa stamping in the embassy in Manila are listed in this page. Having all the complete documents required submitted to the Qatar Embassy or visa application online can surely result a successful visa approval either your purpose is Qatar tourist visa, business visa, and family visa or visit visa.

Avoid usual airport hassles, all Qatar visas issued to Philippine passport holders must be certified first by the Qatari Embassy here before you take off or depart from the airport. Although there are visas available upon arrival, but that is only allowed to citizens of some countries like Singapore, USA, Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Canada, Australia and many more. Right now, Filipinos must apply for a visa first before they can visit or travel Qatar and its territories.

Before I give the requirements, please remember and make a list of the official address and contact numbers of Qatar Embassy in Manila. The embassy has no official website yet so please don’t transact or process your papers anywhere else. Just go to the address below personally. It is updated as of this post was published.

Qatar Embassy Manila, Philippines

2nd Floor, One World Building No. 10 Upper McKinley Road,
McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City
Telephone: 856-6666/ 856-1222/ 856-1444*
856-1999/ 856-2444*
Email address:

Official: H.E. Jassim Ali Abdullah Al Obaidli (Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary)

Qatar Visa Requirements for Tourist, Business and Family Visa

  • Accomplished Application form
  • Passport at least 6 months valid
  • Authenticated Birth Certificate
  • Authenticated Marriage Certificate (if married)
  • NBI Clearance
  • Bank Statement in the recent 3 months of proof of financial support
  • Invitation Letter from employer stating the reason for visa request (for business visa)
  • 2X2 passport size photos with white background
  • Processing fee

Some people especially with friends or relatives can get visas from Qatar themselves and just send them to you in the Philippines. That visa is also required to be stamped and certified at the embassy in Manila before you leave the country. They will issue visa ticker. Just submit the requirements above or have them delivered via official courier. I think right now it’s via DHL.

Qatar Working Visa Stamping and Requirements

Prepare original and photocopies of the following:

  • Accomplished application form
  • Visa notice
  • Valid passport
  • NBI Clearance authenticated by DFA
  • Medical certificate from an accredited clinic by the embassy of Qatar
  • 2X2 passport size photos with white background
  • Visa processing fee (prepare around P3,000)

Qatar Tourist Visa Stamping Requirements

  • Application form
  • Visa notice
  • Valid Passport
  • Invitation Letter from the Sponsor or Affidavit of Support
  • 2X2 passport size photos with white background
  • Visa processing fee

In case you cannot process and apply personally, you may authorize someone to do the filing in your behalf. Just prepare an authorization letter and let your representative bring valid IDs together with your valid IDs and requirements.

By the way, you can download the Qatar visa application form online but for the embassy here in the Philippines, it is not available yet because the official website is not yet available too. You can just download from other embassies to have ideas on how to fill it up and what information are needed once you're in the Qatar Embassy in Manila.

How many days will they release the visa? Usually it takes 4-5 working days. Schedule of filing by the way is from 9am until 10am in the morning only. Releasing is around 2pm to 4pm. It’s advisable you come early to avoid going back again and again.

Qatar visa stamping can be done via DHL directly but you will be charged few thousands for that. I always recommend applying and processing visa personally to save money. That way, you will learn a lot too. Just wear decent attire when going to the embassy alright.

Another hub filled with good information for travelers to this area. I think the bank statement is a bit much to have to show as proof for requirement.

Hi. I had my visa stamped at the Qatar Embassy here in Manila last October. I had to go personally because I was informed that DHL is no longer authorized to do this on my behalf. Reading through one of your replies here, you mentioned that DHL or the authorized courier may do this. May I be clarified? Can I engage the services of DHL to have my visa stamped so that I do not have to go to the embassy personally? This is quite cumbersome for me because I am from Baguio and I really had a hard time having my visa stamped last October because there was no orderly system of transacting at the embassy.

I am directly hiring a philipina on my company thru a 5yrs work visa but they are saying she cannot leave without having the visa stamped on her passport. If I bring her thru Bangkok or Singapore or Hong Kong does the same rule apply as well or she can have only a copy of her visa without stamping it?

kabansa 2 years ago

mga tol

ang website na ito ay hindi lehitimong pag-aari ng Qatar Embassy, kaya ang sasagot sa mga tanong natin ay yung mga kabansa na merong kaalaman sa pag-process ng VISA pa-Qatar.

mas mainam na magtungo na lang sa Qatar Embassy para masagot ng tama ang mga tanong natin kasi kung aasa lamang tayo sa telepono nila baka hindi rin masagot ng tama ang mga katanungan o kaya sabihin na sumadya na lang sa embassy.

yun lang..
