Using the Postal Service in Qatar
Q-Post's General Post Office in Doha
Q-Post's main post office is located on Corniche Road, and there's little chance of missing it it's huge! You have to drive up several levels of the stepped car park to get to the entrance. and you'll also get a good view of the city here. Inside, the building is pleasant enough, and there's internet access as well as a cafe where you can relax.
There is no organized system of street postal addresses in Qatar. To receive letters, customers must rent out a post office box.
Renting a Post Office Box
You'll need to fill a form available either at the post office or on their website (see below). The form must be submitted along with a copy of your ID and the fee. (At the time of writing it costs QR300 annually to rent a box in the main Post Office along with an initial fee of QR260.) You can also purchase an electronic card to open your post office box the price depends on how swanky a card you want (head office only).
