The Qatar Ministry of Interior has stated that visa waiver holders are permitted to stay in the country without having to extend their visa or paying additional fees; however once Qatar declares that conditions have returned to normal and flights start to operate again, they will be given a grace period in which they must leave the country. All other visa holders, such as business and family visit visas may extend their visa and pay the fee online. Such visas may currently be extended for an additional month. It is understood that the visa may be extended one day prior to expiry.
