Frequently asked questions
Volunteering offers many benefits, and everyone has their own answer to this question. You will be part of a global event, gaining valuable experience and networking with professionals from various fields. Volunteers gain satisfaction from contributing to the country and the community. Expo 2023 volunteers receive training, an exclusive uniform, a participation certificate and other rewards, but most of all you will make new friends and create lifelong memories together.
Volunteers will perform various tasks to ensure the best experience for visitors, participants, and media. They will be placed with the diverse functions which run the event (these include visitor services, events & cultural experience, media, ceremonies and more) in roles which we consider suitable for volunteers. Volunteers do not need professional skills and you may not be given a role which matches your job. Your biggest assets are a can-do attitude, being a good listener and ability to help people patiently and courteously.
Over the six-month duration of Expo 2023, we expect you to complete 45 shifts, an average of two days per week. A shift lasts 6-8 hours, depending on the role.
Volunteering roles are unpaid. However, you will receive a unique volunteer uniform, access to volunteer-only events, a certificate of appreciation for your contribution and other exclusive benefits.
Public transport (metro) within Doha, meals and refreshments are provided during your shifts.
No. Anyone can apply to volunteer, even if it’s your first time.
Unfortunately not, as we can expect to receive more applications than we have volunteer places. Not being offered a place is not a reflection of your abilities and experience. If your application is successful we’ll invite you for interview.
EXPO 2023 Doha welcomes volunteers with diverse abilities and strives to create an inclusive environment. If you require a carer or family member to assist you, they should also apply to join the volunteer programme. When you have both applied, please contact us to ensure that your applications are processed together, and we'll help you to identify roles to which you are best suited.
The volunteer programme is for citizens and residents of Qatar. However, overseas applicants will be considered if they are self-funded, eligible to stay in Qatar for six months and can obtain the appropriate visa. Visa, travel and accommodation are not provided by Expo 2023.
Expo 2023 is an international event receiving visitors and participants from around the world. Volunteers need to be able to communicate effectively in English to provide information and assistance to everyone.
Volunteers can select and manage their own shifts and we’ll need you most in the evening and at weekends, so there is every chance you can make volunteering your hobby and still do your day job. However, volunteering is a commitment, please consider carefully whether you’ll be able to fit it into your life.
