Local Resources for U.S. Citizens

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

The State Department maintains several resources that are useful for the U.S. expatriate or traveler. We provide general information about international travel and living abroad, travel alerts, travel warnings, and country specific information. The State Department maintains an electronic travel registration system that we use to disseminate important warden messages and to assist U.S. citizens in trouble abroad.

Residents of Qatar

Our Consular Section maintains several resources for the benefit of U.S. citizens in Qatar. We provide legal information, medical information, instructions about how to marry, and about how to obtain a U.S. police clearance for a Qatari residence permit application.

U.S. Citizen Rights, Obligations, and Benefits

U.S. citizens living in Qatar can still exercise their rights and are still subject to obligations under U.S. law. If eligible, they are also entitled to receive federal benefits while living abroad.
