How To Get Hayya Card Without Match Ticket (Early December)

Since 01 November 2022, only people with the Hayya Card and match tickets are being allowed to visit Qatar. The only exception is Hayya 1+3 option which requires a match ticket holder to apply for bringing guests along. The good news is that these restrictions will be eased soon.

Fans without match tickets will be allowed to enter Qatar from 02 December 2022 when the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ group stage matches will be completed, the organisers have announced on 03 November.

This article will explain how you can get Hayya Card without match ticket and enter Qatar as a visitor during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

  1. I applied for early December and it was rejected. No specific reasons were given for rejection. Now I cannot amend or reapply and it states ”unable to resubmit application. You have reached the limit of resubmission opportunities”. I have sent an email to your technical support but I don’t get an accurate answer. You call international support, but then again it keeps on giving automated answers which are not relevant. Honestly, now I’m losing interest.

  2. My hayya application got rejected using early December access and now i can not even update my application or resubmit it. Now i have tickets in my hand (match day December 1) and accommodation have been booked and paid in full amount(which costed me about 7000qar).

    Neither technical team could help me or i myself.

  3. Hi i m applying for hayya card (early december). Submitted application date 16th November but application status still in pending .

      Hi Samuel, As per the currently available information you need until 23 December 2022. You don’t need it from the 24th onwards.

  6. I have a transit of 19 hours and dont really need accommodation. Would i still have to book accommodation? If so is airbnb accepted?

    1. Doha Guides Team

      Hi Atif, (1) If you have a match ticket you can choose the Match Day Visit option. (2) If you are planning for the Hayya Card without a match ticket option, please check directly with Hayya Service Center: +974-4441 2022. We are not sure if Match Day Visit can be used under this option. You can also ask them about Airbnb.

    Please help in this matter i need to book my accomdation as soon as possible.

    1. Doha Guides Team

      Hi Abdullah, Was your application rejected because of the age issue? If yes, you can book accommodation directly with hotels also. Thir party accommodation is also supported.
