What is Physical Hayya Card?
A physical Hayya Card is a printed card format of the Hayya Card. The contents are similar to that of the digital version.
This personalised and secure identification document includes the cardholder’s name, photo, status, match tickets, Hayya Card number, passport number, QR Code, and other important information.
Do you need a physical Hayya Card during the World Cup?
A physical Hayya Card is not mandatory during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. You only need a digital Hayya Card on your smartphone. Many fans prefer to get a physical Hayya Card to keep as memorabilia.
02 OCTOBER 2022 UPDATE: According to the Hayya support team, Qatar Post is not accepting requests for free delivery of physical Hayya Cards.
The last date to apply for free delivery of a physical Hayya Card was reportedly 30 September 2022. Earlier Qatar Post used to deliver the card free of cost to everyone, including international fans who requested the card.
However, you can still get a physical Hayya Card by visiting a Hayya Service Center with your digital card (mobile app).
How To Get Physical Hayya Card From Hayya Center
The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has opened two Hayya Service Centers in Doha. Located at Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena (ABHA Arena) in Al Sadd and Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) in West Bay, the service centres will support fans with Hayya Card inquiries face-to-face and printing physical cards.
You can simply visit either of these centres with your digital card (mobile app) and collect the card and plastic tags (cardholders) free of cost. Recent visitors say it took only 10-15 minutes to get their cards printed.
Hayya Service Center Timing
The Hayya Service Centres will be open daily from 10 am to 10 pm and from 2 pm to 10 pm on Fridays until 23 December 2022.
|Saturday to Thursday||10 am to 10 pm|

Hayya Card Lost: What To Do
If your physical Hayya Card is lost, there is nothing much you can do now. Hayya Service Centres are not reprinting for those who already printed the card once.
