If you want to go out and have some drinks, then for this you must be above 21 years of age. If you are over the age of 21, you can expect to be able to purchase alcohol at a “licensed bar or restaurant.”

For the FIFA World Cup, the Qatari government has eased some of its restrictions on the purchase of licensed beverages. In which beer is being provided before and after the match in the premises of eight stadiums.

4. Clothing

Fans have been advised to wear “modestly” clothing. Qatar has prohibited wearing shorts or sleeveless tops in the UK, citing the tourism authority via The Independent newspaper. If found to be so, then entry into buildings or stadiums can also be denied on official grounds.

Smoking is prohibited in all public places in Qatar, including museums, sports clubs, shopping malls and restaurants. Violators will also be fined.
