Residents who need to renew visitor and tourist visas and sort out their exit permits should take note that the office near Doha International Airport is relocating.
Starting Sunday, the Visa, Entry & Travel Permits department will move to its new headquarters in an administrative building near Hamad International Airport.
The office is popular among those who need to visit the immigration department during the weekend, since the main immigration department in Madinat Khalifa is closed on Fridays and Saturdays.
According to the Ministry of Interior, the new office will be located near the Cargo section.
For those driving on the highway toward HIA, the new immigration office will involve taking a separate turnoff that comes before the exit for the HIA arrival and departure terminals.
The moves comes a little more than a year after Qatar shifted all airport operations to the much-larger HIA, after outgrowing the DIA.
