International fans who are attending the Fifa World Cup in Qatar can now invite up to three non-ticketed fans to attend as well.

Hayya Card holders can take advantage of the ‘Hayya with Me (1+3)’ feature, introduced to allow them to invite their friends or family to attend the tournament. The feature is only applicable to Hayya Card holders aged 18 or above, and those who have applied using a Fifa World Cup ticket number.

There is no age restriction on the non-ticketed fans themselves, however, they must have a valid passport and cannot be Qatar ID holders. Another requirement is that they must be able to show that they have accommodation in Qatar during the tournament, which will be held from November 20 to December 18.

Each applicant, except children under the age of 12, must pay a non-refundable fee of QAR500.

Here are the steps Hayya Card holders should follow to apply:

1. Select ‘My Hayya’ and click ‘Action’

2. Select ‘Hayya with Me’
