How To Validate Hayya Card Pending Accommodation (4 Ways)

International fans who applied for Hayya Card but haven’t confirmed their accommodation details will see their status as “Pending (Accommodation Confirmation)”. Their Hayya Card application will not be fully approved until the accommodation details are entered and validated.

On Tuesday, 4 October 2022, Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) introduced a new option to validate the Hayya card applications for fans booking accommodation via third-party sites.

This article will explain four different methods of how international fans can easily validate their Hayya Card Pending Accommodation, depending upon their choice of accommodation.

For those who are not sure what a Hayya Card is, it is a mandatory Fan ID for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ that will act as an entry visa to Qatar and provide access to stadiums and public transport on match days.

A Hayya Card is required for both resident and international ticketholders. International ticketholders will need to arrange their accommodation plans to receive final approval on their Hayya Cards. In the case of residents, accommodation details are not required as the system will validate their QID number.

How To Validate Hayya Card Pending Accommodation

If you are an international ticketholder and your Hayya application status is pending accommodation confirmation, there are four ways to validate:


Option 1: Fans booking accommodation via third-party sites

If you have secured your accommodation directly with a hotel or holiday rental company, you need to follow these steps to validate your accommodation:

Step 1: Click Accommodation on the Hayya portal and select “Upload Other Platforms Booking”

Step 2: Accept the terms and conditions

Accept the terms and conditions

Step 3: Fill in the applicant and accommodation details

You will need the accommodation category, name, address, start date, and end date.

Fill accommodation details

Step 4: Upload the booking document

The Accommodation Booking Proof should be a PDF file of less than 2 MB.

Upload booking document

Step 5: Click the “Submit” button

Once your request is reviewed and accepted, you will receive a notification email, and your Hayya Card will be fully approved. Your dependants’ accommodation will also be automatically confirmed.

You will be allowed to upload another Accommodation Booking Proof if your request is rejected.

Here is a video explaining the above process:

Important points to note:

  • Only international ticketholders (over 18 years old) who have applied for a Hayya Card with their passport and whose applications have a Pending (Accommodation Confirmation) status can submit an “Other Platforms Booking” request.
  • The uploaded file and accommodation booking address must be clear.
  • Your name on the uploaded accommodation booking document should be clear and the same as your passport.
  • You can add only one Accommodation Booking Proof.
  • Once the Accommodation Booking Proof is added, it cannot be deleted or changed.

Option 2: Book Official Accommodation

International fans can also book their accommodation using the Official Accommodation Agency website. This website offers multiple options like hotels, apartments, villas, cruise ships, etc.

You will be asked to enter your match ticket details when booking accommodation through this website. The system will automatically match this booking with your Hayya application and validate your Hayya Card.

In all cases, once approved, applicants will be able to use their digital Hayya Cards. If you haven’t made your Hayya Card application yet, check out our guide on how to apply for Hayya Card.

  1. Click Accommodation on the Hayya portal and select “Visit on Match Day”.
  2. Accept the terms and conditions.

  2. Accept the terms and conditions.
