Welcome Chinese, the only official overseas hospitality certification programme recognised by the Chinese government.
The organization collaborates with Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) to empower the country’s hospitality, tourism and retail sectors to meet the requirements of Chinese tourists.
Welcome Chinese marketing consultant Anna Klapper said that China is the world’s biggest and fastest-growing outbound tourism market. The tourism world is extremely competitive. However, the ease of visa-free travel is a game changer.
The citizens of 80 countries, including China, India and Russia, can now enter Qatar visa-free, making it the most open country in the region.
The nationals of more than 240 countries are also eligible to apply for a tourist e-visa online to visit the country.
While shopping and retail remain to be key attractions for Chinese tourists, Klapper pointed out that Qatar has a lot to offer in both luxury and business tourism.
