Qatar has announced the next step in its National Tourism Sector Strategy 2030. This step, called the Next Chapter, lines out the strategy for the development of products, services and experiences, as well as for the promotion of the destination on an international scale for the next 5 years.

Qatar has also won the bid to host the International Conference on Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development (ICEIRD) in October 2018. The rights to host the conference were secured through a joint bid between Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar University (QU). ICEIRD is a three-day conference organised by the University of Sheffield’s International Faculty.

Furthermore, Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI), QTA, and Qatar Airways have announced that Qatar will allow visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries, effective immediately. A multi-entry waiver will be issued free-of-charge at the port of entry, upon presentation of a valid passport with a minimum validity of six months and a confirmed onward or return ticket.
