Using Starling in Qatar 🇶🇦


#1

Does anyone have any experiences to share about using Starling in Qatar?

I’m particularly interested in using it to pay for taxis in Doha and to pay for the ‘visa on arrival’ at passport control.

I recently stopped in Qatar after the first leg of a long haul flight and used my starling card for various small purchases around the airport in Doha. It worked just fine. We didn’t leave the airport so can’t offer any experience of taxis etc. Also we didn’t need to pay for the visa as we were just there for a connecting flight.

Thanks for confirmation Starling works there.

I’ve got a fourteen hour layover at DOH, so plan to use the opportunity to pop into the city…
