Meet the Host of the 2022 World Cup

From the U.S. Department of State:

“Qatar does not allow individuals with HIV/AIDS to enter the country . . . Qatari authorities have confiscated the passports of U.S. citizens who acquired Qatari citizenship . . .  In several cases, Qatari authorities informed U.S. citizens that their U.S. citizenship had been revoked. However, foreign governments have no authority to revoke the citizenship of a U.S. citizen . . . The Embassy strongly encourages U.S. citizens to avoid large crowds and demonstrations whenever possible . . . Local and third-country-national young men have been known to verbally and physically harass unaccompanied, expatriate women . . . Qatari police have arrested U.S. citizens suspected of or witness to a crime, including traffic accidents involving injuries to pedestrians or the occupants of other cars, traffic arguments, slander, and a variety of lesser offenses . . . Insulting someone in public is considered a punishable offense . . . Proselytizing is illegal in Qatar . . . Homosexual activity is considered to be a criminal offense, and those convicted may be sentenced to lashings, a prison sentence, and/or deportation.”
