The UK will start charging Qataris for online visas from today as the British government streamlines its electronic services for foreign visitors.
Electronic visa waivers, which were introduced for Qataris in 2014, were previously free, but will now cost £15 (QR79). The other major change is that Qataris will now upload a copy of their passport biographic data page in addition to typing in the details manually. The move is meant to reduce input errors. Qataris must apply for a visa at least 48 hours before departure.
