Voltage and frequency used in Qatar

All sockets in Qatar provide a standard voltage of 240V with a frequency of 50Hz.

You can use all your equipment in Qatar if the standard voltage in your own country is between 220V-240V. This is mostly the case in Europe, Australia, United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.

If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V-127V (which is most common in the US, Canada and countries in South America) you will need a voltage converter in Qatar. Without a converter you will damage you electronic equipment.

Voltage converters are available trough the links below, you can also choose for a plug adapter and voltage converter in one device.
