 Data Date: 2019


According to the World Bank Doing Business report for Qatar (2019), land ownership records are not publicly available. However, the report indicates that maps of land plots are freely available online. Indeed, Qatar operates a GIS portal where legal boundaries are shown. However, cadastre information (zone, street and building number, utilities identifiers) are not available for all properties. Thus, while Qatar has a central registry for domestic real estate, we consider that it is not available online to the public.
