Question: Can unmarried couples stay together in Qatar?

While many unmarried couples do live together in Qatar, this is technically against the law as it is a Muslim country. Even if the couple is engaged while in Qatar, they are not allowed to cohabit together as they are not officially married yet.

Do you have to be married to live together in Qatar?

The countrys laws forbid unmarried couples to live together, so those whove been co-habiting face a stark choice; marry, or live in separate countries. No family visas are granted in Qatar without a marriage certificate. Naturally, the decision to get married is easier for some couples than for others.
