By

Qatar’s interior ministry has issued a revised list of 188 professions that allow Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) residents to get visa-on-arrival at Doha airport.

The visa validity will be one month, according to information posted on the ministry website.

The professionals can get visa provided their GCC residency visa is valid for at least six-months, that their passport has at least six-month validity and that they have a return ticket.

The visa can be obtained on paying a fee of QR100 through credit card, Qatari daily The Peninsula reported on Monday.
