There’s been plenty of information out there on traveling from neighboring countries and FIFA has published how to park at the Abu Samra border in Qatar and make it into Doha, but it’s been a struggle to find details.

For example, FIFA has said fans can travel via land to Abu Samra and park their cars but only for Match Day visits or stays of at least 5 nights and with minimum of 3 people per vehicle. What if you wanted to drive to Qatar for just a few days or you are traveling solo? Fans have been left alone to figure this out.

We created a detailed post on traveling into Qatar from Saudi Arabia via bus/Careem and taking a bus from UAE to Qatar. Please read that.

Saudi Arabia – Here For You Platform & Details

This article is to highlight the Here for You platform launched by Saudi Arabia.

The entire platform is aimed at providing the details for navigating through Saudi Arabia to get to Qatar. This can be staying within the country, using the shuttle flights, driving to the border, using a bus or even Careem.

If you go to their website, the best packet of information is a downloadable Travel Guide pdf. Image below:
