Qatar is making its debut appearance in South Asia Travel and Tourism Exchange (SATTE) at the 26th edition, being held in New Delhi until January 19, in a bid to strengthen and grow the destination’s presence and appeal in the Indian market. Qatar’s delegation to the industry’s most prominent trade event in India is being led by Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) and consists of representatives from hospitality partners and tour operators.
Thanks to Qatar’s openness, Indian citizens can now enter Qatar visa-free. The visa waiver is valid for 30 days from the date of issuance and entitles its holder to spend up to 30 days in Qatar, during either a single trip or on multiple trips. In addition, there are 176 flights every week connecting Indian cities to Doha offered by Qatar’s award-winning national airline, Qatar Airways, as well as IndiGo, Jet Airways and Air India Express.
In 2018, Qatar welcomed more than 400,000 Indian visitors, representing a 20% increase compared to the previous year, QNTC said in a statement. Qatar’s pavilion will showcase the country’s expanding tourism and hospitality options. The delegation includes representatives from eight hotels and two destination management companies.
