Safety in Qatar

1. A vision for safety and security

 One of four pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030, Social Development, highlights the creation of a “safe, secure and stable society based on effective institutions.” The vision for safety is deeply embedded in the development of the country, and Qatar seeks to promote tolerance, openness, and constructive socio-cultural dialogues within the context of its Arab and Islamic roots.  


2. World Ranking

Qatar ensures the well-being of its citizens, residents, and visitors through its world-class public infrastructure and public safety. Qatar has earned the number one rank for “Safest Country in the World” on the Numbeo Crime Index, for two consecutive years in 2021 and 2022. The country’s capital, Doha, is also ranked the second safest global city in 2022. These achievements are a testament to the successful policies implemented by the country’s leadership to safeguard a stable and high quality of life in Qatar. As a result, visitors can experience Qatar’s tourist attractions and sites with a strong sense of security.

3. Cleanliness

Visitors to Qatar can enjoy worry-free travel knowing that all hotels in Qatar are “Qatar Clean” certified. Qatar Tourism initiated the ‘Qatar Clean’ program during the COVID-19 pandemic, in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health, to implement best practices in hygiene and cleanliness. Protocols across the hospitality sector have since been extended to all tourism establishments across the country and continue to maintain impeccable standards of safety and cleanliness after COVID-19.
