Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy had launched the “Hayya With Me” (1+3) feature in 2022, allowing international fans with match tickets and approved Hayya Cards to bring up to three non-ticket holders.
On 30 January 2023, Qatar Ministry of Interior (MOI) announced that the validity of Hayya Cards will be extended until 24 January 2024. MOI has also announced that international fans with Hayya Cards can bring up to 3 friends and family members using “Hayya With Me” option.
This article will explain how Hayya Card holders can bring guests (friends and family members) using the “Hayya With Me (1+3)” by sending them Hayya With Me voucher code.
NOTE: The below article has been updated with new requirements for 2023.
17 APRIL 2023 UPDATE: The Hayya Portal has been updated with new branding and features. The rules for Hayya With Me are the same as before. The only difference is that now the host has to invite the guest before the guest applies for Hayya.
What is ‘Hayya With Me’
Hayya With Me is a feature that allowed a match ticket holder to invite up to 3 non-ticketed guests to enter Qatar during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. Hayya With Me allowed non-ticketed guests, such as relatives or friends, to enter Qatar and enjoy the festivities, including fan zones, concerts etc. However, they cannot attend any matches without a match ticket.
The Hayya With Me feature is back in 2023, and allows international fans to bring up to 3 friends and family members (who do not have Hayya Card).
If you are a Hayya card holder looking to visit Qatar, please check our guide on how to visit Qatar using Hayya Card in 2023.
Can all Hayya Card holders bring non-ticket fans?
This feature is only available to international fans aged 18 or above who applied using a match ticket number. They should also have confirmed accommodation and approved Hayya Card. Qatar residents are not eligible for this feature.
Is this feature free for international fans?
In 2022, there was a fee of QR 500 per non-ticketed fan above 12 years. Children below 12 years could be added free of cost. The good news is that in 2023, there is no fee for Hayya With Me. It is issued completely free of cost.
Requirements for “Hayya With Me”
The following are the requirements for applying for Hayya With Me (1+3) feature:
- The applicant should be an international fan (Residents are not eligible)
- The applicant should be aged above 18
- The applicant should have a confirmed accommodation
- The applicant’s Hayya Card should be approved
- The guest should have a valid passport
- From 1 February 2023, visitors are required to have health insurance
How Hayya Card Holders Can Bring Non-Ticket Holders
The process to invite non-ticket holders will be a two-stage process.
Stage 1: To be done by the Hayya Card holder
The first stage should be done by the Hayya card holder as follows:
Step 1: Log in to your Hayya account
You should use the same email and password that you used for creating the account in 2022.
Step 2: Select ‘My Hayya’ and click ‘Action’
Step 3: Select ‘Hayya with Me’
Hayya With Me option will be shown as a drop-down menu. The Hayya Card application should already be approved for this feature.
Step 4: You can see three voucher codes
These are your “Hayya With Me Voucher Codes”.
Step 5: These voucher codes should be given to non-ticketed guests
Please note that each guest needs a different “Hayya With Me Voucher Code”. Multiple guests cannot use the same code.
Stage 2: To be done by the guest
The second stage should be done by the guest (friend or family member) as follows:
Step 1: Create a Hayya Account and Login
- Go to the Hayya Portal.
- Click “Apply For Hayya”.
- If you don’t have an account, sign up here using your email ID.
- Once your email ID is confirmed, log in using the same email ID and password.
Step 2: Click on “Apply for Hayya”
This option is available on the top menu.
Step 3: From ‘Applicant Category’, select ‘Hayya with Me 2023’
Step 4: Enter the voucher code received from the Hayya Card holder
This should be the “Hayya With Me Voucher Code” received during the first stage explained earlier.
Step 5: Click on ‘Validate my Voucher’
The system will validate the voucher. Once validated, you can proceed with the application.
Step 6: Review and accept the terms
This will be active only if your voucher details are validated.
Step 7: Upload photo and passport details
For more details on photo and passport files, please see this article on how to apply for a Hayya Card.
Step 8: Enter your personal details and contact information
Step 9: Click on the “Review & Submit” button
You will receive the updates in your email. Once your application is approved, you will receive an entry permit to the State of Qatar via email.
Stage 3: Accommodation
The guest should have confirmed accommodation before travelling. If the guest is using a hotel accommodation, he only needs a hotel booking. The details of hotel booking should be uploaded to “Upload Other Platforms Booking” on the Hayya portal.
If the guest is staying with a Qatar resident, the resident should register his property on Hayya portal and add the guest to it. Here is our guide on how to register on Hayya portal to host family and friends. As per the new update in April, the host should invite the guest before the guest can apply for Hayya.
Note: Nowadays National Address Certificate is also accepted instead of Tenancy Contract.
Here is a video explaining all about the Hayya With Me option in 2023:

How long can a guest stay with hayya card voucher code invitation?
Hi Rachana, If Hayya With Me is approved, you can stay until 23 January 2024. Last date of entry is 10 January 2024.
Please advise whether Indians are eligible for new hayya visa policy, with option A1 tourist visa.
Hi GK, During press conference it was mentioned it is for those who are not eligible for VOA. Currently Indians are able to apply, but we don’t know if it would be rejected. We are waiting for some clarification about this.
Are they not giving Hayya permit to those who are already in qatar
Yesterday my status shows data error and the reason they mention is (you already have active family visit visa)
Please tell what is the problem is it because they are updating Hayya portal ?
Hi Asma, After the Hayya portal update this week, we are seeing this error when someone applies for Hayya inside Qatar. Seems like a new policy.
Hi DGT, i am already in qatar with hayya card my accommodation type is removed and duration is showing 0 so is there anything to worry for people who are already in qatar by using hayya card..?
Hi Aisha, This is the same for everyone after new update. Nothing to worry.
Recently I have applied for Hayya entry permit for my wife and my two daughters . My daughters got approval but for my wife it’s showing data error (you can’t proceed as you are on family visit visa) as they are on visit visa right now
I have called Hayya customer care they said it’s technical error
Want to ask if anybody else is facing the same problem?
And please tell if it’s technical errror then how much time they take to fix it as their visit visa will finish in the beginning of next month
Hi Fawad, Hayya system is having some updates now. Only they can confirm when the errors will be fixed.
same i have recived data error ,it u are request approve or still pending mine is pending from 15 days .
hi DG Team
recently.. changes have been made in hayya card. the accommodation type is removed and instead of duration with the number 0 is shown. this has hppened to most of my friends !!!
Hi Hadi, They are rebranding Hayya and there will be more changes in the coming days. Nothing to worry.
When im entering to Qatar Accomodation For can i show National address certificate thats enough or Tenant agreement needed
Hi Mohammed, National Address Certificate is being accepted.
Dear DG Team,
My family will be entering Qatar through Hayya this month. When they are in Hayya card, Can I apply RP for my family as I will be eligible to apply after two month. If RP approved, is my family required to exit and enter through RP visa?
Hi Gopalakrishnan, From what we have seen with others, those who are on Hayya visa are now facing issues while applying for RP. When they contact MOI, they are being asked to exit and cancel Hayya before applying for RP. Our advice is to come using Family Visit Visa and apply for RP later. Those on Family Visit Visa can change to RP without exit by paying QR 500.
The same issue popup will come up when u apply for visit visa also ie previous visa exists for same person if u apply for family visit for a person having hayya. Even if u are able to submit for visit visa, it will be rejected with comments person has valid unused visa(if outside Qatar) and person in country with visa(if inside Qatar)
Hi Siraj, Thanks for the update.
Hi, is the age of 17 years old guest with hayya card can travel alone to enter qatar?
Hi Rubi, Yes, children can travel alone if they have entry permit.
Can we enter through abu samra border by hayya entry permit.
Hi Rayees, It was allowed until recently. You can double check with Qatar Government Helpline at +974-44069999 or [email protected] (to make sure the rule has not changed).

Hi! I applied for Hayya on March 8 and until now it’s pending, almost a month now. I tried to call and email them but I didn’t get any answer. Is there anyway to follow u what is the causing of delay? Is it depends on nationality? and what is the maximum time of waiting? Hope you can assist me. Thank you so much.
Hi Darl, The only way to contact is to call or email them. Average time is 2-3 weeks.
Hello DG! Your post is very informative. I would like to ask if I can register my daughter who is a minor under hayya so she can visit Qatar. I tried applying her under family visit visa and immigration said that for now only Hayya is accepted.
Hi Gemo, Yes, you can do that. But note that if you want to change to RP later, your daughter will have to exit the country.
I applied the hayya for my mother in-law and complete all the procedures now its under process. While i was updating guest with me I forgot to logout her hayya account and upload all the accommodation details from her hayya account and she received invitation email from hayya host name herself
But all the detail’s including my name, id, otp, etc is registered by my name. Is it going to be a problem? What should i do please suggest
Hi Ram, If she has the invitation email, it should be OK.
I have applied the hayya card for my father. It was rejected because of sequence of name, than later after putting everything correctly hayya team has generated the ticket. As per them, technical team will review the application and amend automatically. Since now 10 days has been passed I didn’t receive the approval on hayya card. How much time will it take.. Shall I start the new application? please guide.

Hi Umar, 2-3 weeks is normal now. If it has been 3 weeks, please contact Hayya helpline. Or else please wait. Deleting and applying again may delay it further.
