Qatar introduces airport tax on passengers | The National

Qatar introduces airport tax on passengers | The National:

"Qatar’s government will levy a new airport tax on passengers from Tuesday as the country seeks new revenue streams amid falling oil prices.

Every passenger leaving Qatar from Doha’s Hamad International Airport, including transit passengers, will be charged 35 riyals ($9.61) for using airport facilities, according to a statement by the airport.

The charge will apply to tickets issued after August 30 and for any travel starting on December 1 onwards and would be used to "further increase the airport’s capacity and invest in new infrastructure", the statement said."
