Qatar is set to play host to the FIFA World Cup in the months of November through December of 2022. During this time span, there will be more than 2.5 billion spectators witnessing it. Because all the stadiums are located in the tiny city of DOHA, the city will have to deal with the pressure of tourists. As per estimation, the number of rooms does not equal the required number. Either the rooms are getting too expensive or they are not available on my preferred dates. However, there will be a few fans who have relatives living in Qatar. Initially, there was no provision for the fans to enter Qatar without first registering their accommodation details. There was a need to book accommodation on the official website portal of Qatar. Fans, planning to visit their friends or family in Qatar, were clueless. But now Qatar has cleared the confusion , and has allowed local residents to let their friends and family stay with them during FIFA. Locals have again got the opportunity to rent out their private spaces to fans in exchange for money. Let us discuss how one can host family and friends in Qatar for the World Cup.
