7hrs stopover

My friends and I will travel from Istanbul to Kuala Lumpur and our layover is 7hrs. Is it possible for us to go out, at least to Saoq Waqi within this short period?

First thing is if you are entitled for visa on arrival in Qatar. Visitors from only 34 countries are allowed visa on arrival, so please check before you make any plans. Link below can help in determining if your are national of one of the 34 countries.


Generally 7 hours should be enough to visit souq waqif but it is better if you can advice what time you would be landing, what day of the week you would be landing.

Because if you are landing around midnight there is not point in going to Souq as it will be a ghost town excluding couple of 24 hours restaurants everything else would be closed.

Take Care
