A passenger of Qatar Airways told International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that he and other passengers on December 12, 2012 on the airport of Doha were discriminated. They had to spend 15 to 20 hours on the airport.The passengers had received 24-hour temporary visas (STPC) and had made hotel reservations through travel agencies or directly through Qatar Airways offices in Tehran,
Upon arrival into Doha Airport, airport authorities refused to allow the group of Iranian passengers to be transferred to hotels. The reason for the refusal was cited as a new directive by Qatar’s Immigration Office, which stipulates that Iranian passengers must re-apply for permission in order to be transferred to hotels.After waiting for hours, the passengers were transferred back to the transit area.
This problem has stemmed from political issues, and according to the airline staff, it is a new requirement for Iranian, Syrian, an Jordanian passengers only since early December 2012.
The eyewitness reported that between a period from 8 and 24 hours, only Iranian and Syrian passengers faced this clear discrimination.
