Everything you need to know about the FIFA 2022 world cup

by: AugustineMbam


As we count down to the global showpiece in Qatar on 20 November. It is known that an Arab country, Qatar, is the host of the biggest football event in the world and has spent over 15,838 billion to host the FIFA World cup 2022.

It will be held from November 21 to December 18 across eight state-of-the-art stadiums in the country. These stadiums are Lusail, Al Bayt Stadium, Al Rayyan Stadium, Al Thumama Stadium, Al Wakrah, Khalifa International Stadium, Education City Stadium, and Ras Abu Aboud Stadium.

Hamad Global Airport in Doha is supposed to have a consistent in-progression of guests from everywhere, with more than 1300 flights per day for a month, essentially for the FIFA World Cup 2022. Since this is quite possibly the greatest occasion after the pandemic, guests might have a ton of fear concerning visa, travel, convenience, Coronavirus limitations, and, generally speaking, preparation. 

Documents needed

Two of the most important documents that one needs are a Hayya card and a visa.

A Hayya card serves as a fan ID and an entry permit to the matches, and it is necessary to carry the same with the match ticket. This card is compulsory for both international and resident visitors. A Hayya card is required to be on the person whilst entering the country for the FIFA World Cup 2022.  The best part about a Hayya card is that visitors are entitled to free match-day travel.

Indian citizens can go for a visa on arrival, valid for a month after it is issued and extended for an additional month. Medical insurance is mandatory to enter the country for matches.

How to get to Qatar


Qatar, as a FIFA destination, is one of the most accessible venues from India, with numerous flights from Delhi and Mumbai. They also offer World Cup Packages, which allow visitors to plan everything in one go and save money. The package includes a round-trip flight from Doha to India, hotel accommodations with meal options, and reserved stadium seats, allowing you to travel stress-free because everything is pre-booked. You can book your tickets through Qatar Airways or choose more affordable tickets from other airlines, such as Etihad Airways if you don’t mind a three-hour layover in Abu Dhabi.


The FIFA World Cup tickets are generally accessible on a first come, first served basis. According to the official website, the sale of phase two tickets has ended. Fans, however, should not be discouraged however, last-minute sales for this tournament will be available. More details are available on the official website.
