Qatar Technical Information for Travelers - Voltage / Plug / Region - WPR

Qatar Technical Information for Travelers

Qatar Technical Information - In Short

Qatar Technical Information - In Details

Qatar Voltage

The voltage in Qatar is 240 V which is the same voltage used in Australia, Kuwait, and Malaysia.

Note that the 240 V is the highest voltage used in the world and therefore the most dangerous.

240 V has an advantage over lower voltage such as the 110 V that it is cheaper to transmit. On the other hand, 240 V is more dangerous than lower voltages.

Qatar Electrical Frequency

The electrical frequency in Qatar is 50 Hz.

Note that most household and electrical/electronic equipments nowadays support multiple frequencies, so generally, electrical frequency is not an issue compatibility wise.

Qatar Plug/Socket Type(s)

The plugs used in Qatar are D or G.

Plugs/sockets are usually an issue when it comes to traveling, so always make sure you travel with a universal plug adapter.

Qatar DVD Region

Qatar uses DVD Region 2.

DVD Region 2 is used in Europe, the Middle East, and Japan.

Note that a region 2 DVD cannot play on a DVD player supporting another region. There are, however, some region free DVD players available that can be used to overcome this.

Qatar Blu-ray Region

Qatar uses Blu-ray Region B.

Blu-ray Region B is used across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Theoretically, a region B Blu-ray disc should not play in Blu-ray disc players supporting another region. However, most Blu-ray discs are now region free (meaning they can work on any Blu-ray disc player), and most Blu-ray players are also region free. Hence, compatibility is rarely an issue (for now) when it comes to Blu-ray discs.

Qatar GSM Freqency(ies)

Qatar uses the GSM 900 GSM frequency.

When travelling, make sure that your phone supports the GSM frequency of the country you’re traveling to. Usually the supported GSM frequencies are printed on the box of your phone as well as its manual.
