DOHA: Malaysians will no longer need to pay any visa fee to visit Qatar, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said.
The Deputy Prime Minister said Qatar’s Prime Minister and Home Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani informed him of this during their meeting here.
He said Malaysians would also be accorded the visa-on-arrival facility allowing them to stay in Qatar for 60 days and an additional 30 days on application.
“This is a new decision which was reached and agreed with the Qatari government,” he told Malaysian journalists here.
Dr Ahmad Zahid said the change would take effect after a follow-up meeting to be handled by Malaysia’s Ambassador to Qatar Datuk Ahmad Jazri Mohd Johar. — Bernama
