I am Resident in Qatar, My parents want to visit me in qatar for 15 days, Is Hotel booking compulsory fr them for visa on arrival.
Dear Rohit, No need of hotel booking. Ask them to carry a copy of your QID and address where they are going to stay. In immigration if they ask about stay they can tell that they are going to stay with you and show your ID and address. – QatarIndians.com Team
