Introducing the Qatar Media Portal

As we approach the final countdown to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, we are delighted to share the details of key platforms and services available to journalists and broadcasters covering the tournament. We thank you for your continued support of Qatar’s preparations ahead of this internationally-renowned event.

To support the widespread coverage of the 2022 World Cup, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has launched the Qatar Media Portal.

The Portal delivers exclusive content and services to support reporting on the tournament and acts as a one-stop shop for permits and accreditation.

Permits and accreditation

The Portal will provide an integrated platform for Hayya entry permits, as well as permits for filming and photography equipment for all media and broadcast representatives entering the State of Qatar.

This includes Host Country-Accredited Media and FIFA-Accredited Media, as well as FIFA Media Rights Licensees (MRLs) and Non-Rights Holders (NRHs). Host Country media accreditation for non-FIFA Accredited Media is also available on the portal, as well as facilities for equipment clearance procedures (excluding drones).

The Portal will also facilitate a range of services including interviews with Supreme Committee and government spokespeople, studio bookings, and media tours.

Access to assets

Registered users will be granted access to the Qatar’s Host Country video and photography archive, a substantive collection of content resources for use by media and broadcast representatives. These assets are available to media representatives attending the tournament and those covering the event remotely.

Access to key sites and facilities

Although Host Country-Accredited Media will not have access to some official tournament-specific sites - such as stadiums, training sites, the Main Media Centre, and the International Broadcast Centre – they will receive access to several high-quality media facilities. These include the Host Country Media Centre in Msheireb Downtown Doha, as well as several centrally located broadcast studios which will meet their requirements.

On approval, FIFA-Accredited Media, FIFA MRLs, and NRHs will receive a Host Country Upgrade Pass that will serve as their film and photography permit throughout their visit to Doha. This will enable them to access the FIFA Fan Festival and Host Country Media Centre, and film festivities across several iconic sites in Doha. Throughout the duration of the tournament, all media and broadcast representatives will also have access to free public transport.


Media and broadcast representatives are encouraged to register as soon as possible and explore the various services the portal offers.
