The FIFA World Cup is nearing and reservations for serviced apartments in Doha for the month of November are facing positive growth following 2 years of tourism downturn due to COVID-19. While FIFA World Cup has been hosted every four years, the year 2022 brings about a revolution as the mega sporting event is hosted by an Arabian country for the first time, guaranteeing more tourist arrivals to hotel apartments in Doha for longer stays.
As part of the country’s COVID-19 travel requirements, travellers are requested to download the Ahteraz app to their smartphones. This mobile application is the source of all information about tourists, including details of their stay and vaccination status. Further, only vaccinated individuals will be allowed to attend the FIFA World Cup, which is to be held from 21st November to 18th December 2022. While the mask mandate may have been taken off in many countries and areas of the world, wearing a mask during the event and in all public places is considered mandatory.
