I wonder how much of the 1600 volunteers mentioned are Qatari nationals?

If you are going to post an article you may wish to abide by forum rules and reference the source correctly. Even if it is meaningless drivel. The underlined section appears as if you are trying to highlight something important or make a point. Think you should stick to what you do best ignoring very obvious questions relating to the inability of Qatar (Dohole) to host a football tournament (s) of size and the sickening double standards shown to them by the world's football bodies.

Hassle-free visa for Asian Cup fans

DOHA: Football fans from abroad, particularly from the Asian countries and Australia, who are wishing to attend the Asian Cup 2011 in Doha can take advantage of a new entry visa being offered by Qatar.

The visa will be available on arrival at the airport and other ports of entry for foreigners visiting the country during the tournament that kicks off on January 7.

Football fans can now apply on line through the e-Government portal and the websites of the AFC Asian Cup and the Qatar Football Association.

“The new entry visa is part of our efforts to attract as many foreign tourists to the country as possible during the Asian Cup. The Qatar Local Organising Committee of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2011 (QLOC) is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior and e-Government to facilitate easy entry for football fans from all over the world during the tournament,” Asian Cup director Hilal Al Mohannadi told The Peninsula yesterday.

Applications can be posted through a special link available on the AFC Asian Cup website, www.afcasiancup.com, the QFA website, www.qfa.com.qa and Hukoomi website, www.gov.qa.

This visa will be issued on arrival at the airport or border only during the duration of the tournament. The applicants must carry a return ticket to the point of origin and must possess the amount of QR5000 or equivalent or a valid major Credit Card.

“These requirements will be strictly enforced by the Airport Authorities on arrival. Failure to meet any of the above requirements will result in denial of entry to the country,” according to the Hukoomi website.

The single entry visa will be issued for a duration of a maximum 30 days. A fee of QR100 will be charged for each visa.

The applicants are required to fill a simple form with personal details and details of the dependents travelling with the applicant, if any. They will be informed about the status of the application.

Al Mohannadi said the visa would be available to people from all nationalities without any “discrimination.”

“We hope the new entry visa would give a further boost to football fans planning to visit Qatar for the Asian Cup. We are also expecting a number of visitors from other GCC countries. People have already started applying since the service was launched today,” he added.

Sixteen countries are vying for the coveted AFC Asian Cup, hosted in five stadiums across the country. The tournament runs from January 7 to 29.

Ticket prices start from QR5 and can be purchased online through the website, www.afcafcasiancup.com or at AFC outlets in Villaggio, City Center, Landmark and The Mall.

Oh I forgot to say good job on referencing (you are learning.. slowly).

I wonder if the good people in Dohole will extend their non discriminatory visa policy beyond the Asian Cup or just keep it for the duration of the tournament in an effort to compensate for their non existent football culture and pathetic crowd numbers (and yes 100 000 pre tickets sold is pathetic Australia will triple that in 4 years time even without buying a world cup a month before kick off).

Qatar?? The country that stole the world cup hosting by vote rigging and bribery, with the most garbage football team, the worst technical report ever given to any nation and all the while conducting modern day slavery.

Shame the likes of David Proctor as well weren't awarded the same luxury but he wasn't a slave at least initially, he was forced to become one.

Sources are not a priority.

All I hear is nagging, Australia didn't even host it once yet, not to mention the world cup.

Where did you even get the 100K figure ? so much BS in your comments

Well that's a great attitude. I'm sure if you were a journalist you would have the same opinion if pin heads where posting your work without reference. Wonder what the mods would think?

All I hear is nagging, Australia didn't even host it once yet, not to mention the world cup.

The so called nagging is in response to your complete ignorance and inability to answer logical question posed to you. You best response seem to be 'blah' - very intelligent and mature!

Yes Qatar ! Qatar which is the first to host the Asian Cup TWICE.

Qatar, World Cup 2022 HOST. Yes Qatar ! Qatar which is the first to host the Asian Cup TWICE. Qatar, World Cup 2022 HOST.[/QUOTE]


Ill address both points together as they are essential just you repeating yourself...


We have been in Asia for 5 years - how long has Dohole been a member?Regardless, despite what the sad little world you live in might lead you to believe, the Asian Cup is not considered that big of a deal in the wider view of world sport. Sure it may have large viewer audiences due to some very big member countries, but unlike the world cup (ill get to 2022), Olympics, RWC, Tour De France, Commonwealths and even the Euros there is no real interest/prestige in it outside of Asia. You have hosted it twice -> big deal! We have hosted 2 Olympics, 2 Rugby World Cups, Several Commonwealth Games and many other world standard events.

Yes we know, the whole world knows you bought the World Cup. Do you think that gains you any respect in the sporting world? Quite the opposite. Do have any idea the amount of people outside of the gulf are disgusted by this. Has any other announcement in sport ever caused this much outrage across the world? Why do you think moron? Because you crappy little dive of a country does not deserve it and the pin heads (such as yourself) who thinks this buys you sports cred are a joke and deluded.

Where did you even get the 100K figure ? so much BS in your comments

Just confirms you actually don't read this forum. Go back two pages you moron. One of your fellow sympathisers posted it there.

Now I have responded to all your points - let see if you do the same. I'm not holding my breath. Expecting you to perform your usual routine of ignoring the points you can't answer and posting complete dross.
