Addresses in Qatar

There is no organised system of street names and postal addresses in Qatar. To receive letters, customers must rent out a post office box. PO addresses should be laid out in a format of at least three and no more than five lines.

For example:

  • Addressee
    PO Box number
    Locality name

PO Boxes

PO Boxes are available to rent from any post office that provides this service. The main post office in Doha is situated on the Doha Corniche. To set up a PO Box it is necessary to complete an application form, which is available from all post offices. The form should be submitted along with a copy of ID and the fee. An electronic key card is then issued for a small additional fee.
