Crime & Security in Qatar

Qatar is considered a safe country both for visitors and residents. The crime rate is much lower than in some western countries, but you should still take sensible precautions with valuables and cash, and avoid unfamiliar areas especially when alone or at night.

Western women might experience harassment, but it will likely be more annoying than threatening; such as having a man circle around the block whilst you walk down the street, or whisper at you to get your number in the store, but for the most part it will be men staring since it's normal.

Perhaps the biggest danger to the safety of visitors is the standard of driving on Qatar’s roads. Accidents are commonplace, so make sure you’re expecting the unexpected when driving, and be especially careful if out and about on foot.
