Life in Qatar

Qatar is a young, ambitious nation with exciting opportunities. Topping the Forbes list of World’s Richest Countries, Qatar has one of the highest standards of living and is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. With a strong economy, attractive salaries, and non-existent tax rate, Qatar attracts top professionals from all over the world.

How is the Qatari Culture?

Qatar has a rich Arab culture and Qataris are known for their generosity and hospitality, which is reflected in the wealth of its customs and traditions.
Islam is the official religion and Islamic influence is evident in clothing, eating, and drinking practices. It is estimated that Qatari nationals make up approximately 12% of the population; Arabic is the official language. As the result of a large expatriate population who live and work in Qatar, English is widely spoken and understood.

What about health and healthcare?

The average life expectancy in Qatar is currently 78 years. High-quality, free or highly subsidized healthcare is provided to all nationals and expatriates. The most prevalent diseases include cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer.

Is Qatar safe?

Incidents of violence are rare in Qatar and crime rates are generally low. Qatar is one of the safest countries in the world and is ranked 30th out of 163 countries in the Global Peace Index, the highest in the region. The Qatar police force is highly visible and capable, providing a high standard of security.

What about education?

Education, particularly women’s education, has been a major focus of the Qatar government in recent years. Qatar follows the policy of compulsory education until the end of the elementary stage. There are a large number of private and international schools. Besides, Qatar Foundation’s Education City, created as a center of educational excellence, houses international universities from the US, UK, and France.

What is the currency of Qatar and how is the economy?

Riyal is the official currency (QAR or QR). The Qatari Riyal is equivalent to approximately USD 0.27.

As the second-largest exporter of natural gas in the world, Qatar has one of the strongest economies. Diversifying its economy, Qatar is investing thoughtfully in other industries such as finance, tourism, infrastructure, aviation, and utilities. The country is becoming a major international center for sports and energy events.

How is the weather?

Qatar is primarily flat and desert-like. However, there are beaches and large sand dunes in the southeast, along the Inland Sea. The climate is characterized by a mild winter and a hot summer. The country has a low annual rainfall, which occurs during the winter months. Autumn and spring are warm with maximum temperatures between 25 – 35℃, and the summer (June to September) is hot with temperatures reaching 40℃ and above.

What about the dressing style?

In keeping with Islamic law, Qatari women typically wear the ‘abaya’, a long black robe over their clothes. They cover their heads with a ‘hijab’ (scarf) and some may wear a think black veil covering their face. Qatari men generally wear the ‘dishdasha’ or ‘throbe’, a white, tunic-like garment reaching to the ankles, with a headdress called a ‘ghutra’.

While Western dresses are widely accepted, modest dressing is expected.
