The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Saudi Arabia would let people in with the Hayya Card, which Qatar will give to football fans going to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. According to the Saudi Press Agency, Hayya Card users can spend up to 60 days in the country during the World Cup season, which runs from November 1 to January 23 next year.
They will be able to get into Saudi Arabia 10 days before the World Cup starts in Qatar if they use the kingdom’s unified national visa network to get an electronic visa. They must obtain medical insurance before entering the kingdom.
According to the ministry, people with a Hayya Card can enter and leave the country many times during the time their visa is valid, and they don’t have to go to Qatar first. During the World Cup, the Hayya Card will act as admission permission into Qatar and is required for football fans who intend to attend matches.
“During the tournament, fans from all over the world, including GCC nationals, will not be able to enter Qatar without a Hayya Card,” stated Saeed Al Kuwari, executive director of Hayya. “From the start to the finish of the event, everyone except Qatar nationals and residents will be required to enter the country.”
People who have a Hayya Card get a lot of benefits, like free public transportation on game days.
