The Qatar Media Portal will enable media and broadcasters (non-accredited and FIFA-accredited) to apply for a range of services and permits, including Host Country Accreditation, Entry Permit (Hayya) and Film/Photo Permit through a single-registration form. The Qatar Media Portal enables three groups of media to apply for their respective accreditation / permits, as follows:

Host Country Accreditation

Pertains to non-FIFA Accredited Media looking to obtain Host Country Media Accreditation, an Entry Permit to the State of Qatar and a nationwide Film Permit

Host Country Accreditation grants access to the following sites: Host Country Media Centre, Host Country Broadcast Facilities, FIFA Fan Zones and FIFA Fan Festival

Host Country Accreditation does not permit holders from entering FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM sites

FIFA Accredited

Pertains to FIFA Accredited Media looking to obtain an Entry Permit to the State of Qatar and a nationwide Film Permit

Digital Portal Access Only

Pertains to Media seeking to obtain access to the Qatar Media Portal with no intention of visiting Qatar, and as such, don’t require Accreditation, Entry Permit and/or Film Permit

Successful accredited applicants will also receive a Digital Hayya Card, which is needed to access stadiums with a spectator ticket and enables use of the public transport system, free of charge.

The application process at the Qatar Media Portal has been streamlined to enable non-FIFA Accredited Media applicants and FIFA Accredited Media applicants to complete a single application to generate their desired Host Country Accreditation and/or Permits.

Important Notes:

Media must hold one of the two accreditations only. FIFA Accredited Media must not apply for Host Country Media Accreditation and Media seeking Host Country Media Accreditation must not hold or intend to apply for FIFA Media Accreditation

All information provided in the application must be accurate

All personal information must be identical to the information included in the applicant’s Passport or Qatar Identification Document (QID)

The application process takes around 5 to 10 minutes

It is advisable that all information and attachments required as part of the application are readily available with the applicant ahead of commencing the application, including:

  • o Passport or Qatar Identification Document (QID) Scan (JPEG 2 Mb) – valid at least until 30th June 2023
