To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Qatar Airways is offering Indian nationals special fares to 20 ‘Easy Visa’ destinations on both Economy and Business Class. The visa-friendly destinations offer Indian nationals a seamless and convenient process of securing their visas, either by applying online (e-visa), upon arrival or, in certain cases a visa-free arrival. Valid from 4th October to 25th December 2017, Qatar Airways’ ‘Easy Visa’ promotion will offer discounts of up to 40 per cent on Economy Class and 30 per cent on Business Class, as well as special companion fares on select destinations, offering flexibility for two passengers travelling together in business class to receive further discounts.
Qatar Airways Senior Manager for Indian Subcontinent, Naveen Chawla, said, “The offer compliments our expansion strategy at Qatar Airways, which aims to provide travellers with a varied choice of destinations and to deliver an award-winning service on-board one of the youngest aircraft fleets with state-of-the-art-features.” This promotion follows a recent announcement last month by Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI), Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways, allowing visa-free entry into Qatar for citizens of 80 countries, including India. Indian nationals wishing to visit Qatar will not require prior visa arrangements and can obtain a visa-waiver upon arrival. The waiver will be valid for 30 days from the date of issuance and entitle its holders to spend up to 30 days in Qatar during either a single trip, or on multiple trips. This waiver may be extended for a further 30 days.
