Qatar has decided to grant free prompt tourist entry visa for Pakistanis on their arrival, Qatar news agency (QNA) reported Tuesday.

A formal notice published by the Qatari embassy in Pakistan on their website said that Qatar will grant Pakistanis free tourist visa valid for 30 days on their arrival with certain conditions.

The free visa's requirements include 6-month validity of passenger's passport, a confirmed return ticket and having cash equivalent to 5,000 Qatari riyal (about 1,347 US dollars) or a valid credit card.

The visa will be granted for 30 days free of charge and is extendable for a similar period after confirming the return ticket.

In August, Qatar offered visa-free entry to 80 countries including China. Qatar Airways chief Akbar al-Baker said the state-owned carrier, which this year plans to extend its network to 62 new destinations, would be a primary beneficiary of the decision.
