ETS Security Overview – Qatar

Qatar’s political situation is considered to stable through the leadership of Sheikh Tamin who has made significant efforts in ensuring the national infrastructure is a priority, specifically due to the countries’ large natural gas reserves. That being said Qatar has had issues with other countries in the region due to its relationship with radial and Islamic groups. Recently the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia attempted to embargo the country in order to pressure Qatar to draw a hard line against such terror groups

There is an ongoing threat of terrorism in Qatar and also its neighboring countries. The attacks can happen and strike anywhere. The main targets can be western hotels, oil and gas facilities, beach locations and expatriate housing to name a few. Although security is generally good in Qatar attacks cannot be ruled out and travelers should be particularly vigilant in crowded areas such as markets and mosques.

Road conditions are considered to be good as but the level of driving is poor and high-speed driving and accidents are frequent. It is important that your driver is knowledgeable and safe while you travel throughout Qatar to minimize your level of risk while traveling
