How To Make Travel Arrangements To Qatar

International Finance (IF) offers individuals full support and services for arranging university-related travel to Qatar. IF supplies information, forms and requirements so that travelers have a single contact when making travel arrangements. In order for the university to cover travel expenses, the traveler must arrange plans through IF.

IF assists with flight arrangements for travelers including:  

  • Business Travelers
  • Faculty
  • Invited Guests
  • Spouses or Domestic Partners
  • Staff
  • Students

As soon as the traveler's department manager/sponsor authorizes travel dates, the traveler or department should contact IF at with:

  • Traveler's name, department and university affiliation (e.g., staff, faculty, expatriate, student)
  • Anticipated travel dates
  • Special travel needs or requests
  • Information, including requested dates of travel for additional family members to accompany the traveler

Upon receipt of the initial email, IF will respond with travel details, documents and information needed to proceed with travel arrangements.

Authorize and Review Itinerary

To finalize international flights, travelers must obtain their Department Administrator's authorization of the preliminary itinerary. An administrator must approve every trip to an international destination and may not use a blanket approval to cover multiple trips.

As soon as the schedule is decided, IF will forward the initial itinerary to the traveler for review and approval. If possible, alternative requests can be made if the traveler is not satisfied with the initial arrangements.
