Travel money for Qatar

Another popular option is to use a Pre-paid Travel Card. Your Debit/Credit Card provider will charge you 2% from market mid-rate, but your bank may also charge an extra 3% as an “Overseas Transaction Charge” plus “Overseas ATM” fees for withdrawing cash.

Sending money to Qatar

The Qatari riyal (QAR) is fully convertible, and Qatar does not restrict overseas transfers of funds from capital gains, interest, dividends, royalties or management fees. The Qatari riyal has been pegged to the US dollar (USD) at a rate of QR3.64 per US$1 since 1980.

When sending money to Qatar it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Qatari rial amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted QAR amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Qatar.
