Weather all year round
Qatar is a desert country with an arid subtropical climate. It is very hot and humid in summer, mild in winter. Winter showers are minimal and rainfall does not exceed 75.2 mm per year. There are two main seasons: a cool season from December to February, and a warm season from April to October, in which we can distinguish a very hot period from May to mid-October, with temperatures exceeding 40°C or even approaching 50°C
The local currency is the Qatar Riyal (QAR) aligned with the USD and of the same value as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) dirham. This destination is not as unaffordable as the ambient luxury might suggest. Hotels and restaurants offer rates that, at equivalent quality, are well worth those in European capitals and flights are very affordable
No more visas to travel to Qatar as a French, Belgian, Canadian, Swiss or Schengen citizen. Presenting a passport valid 6 months after your arrival day and a return ticket will allow you to reside 180 days without any further formalities. The traveller must refrain from arriving in Qatar in possession of alcohol or other prohibited products.
No special instructions in this extremely healthy and polished country. However, at this latitude there is a risk of sunstroke and it is advisable to protect yourself from the sun, especially when it is at its peak, and to drink plenty of water in the desert. It is better not to walk or sleep in the desert without a guide.
