According to flag carrier Qatar Airways, Pakistani nationals can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 30 days under the new rules, reports Dawn news. 

They can also apply to extend their stay by another 30 days. 

The conditions include possession of a passport valid for a minimum of six months from the date of arrival , and an air ticket showing that the traveller will be leaving the country, Qatar Airways said.
