How to get a PO Box in Qatar?
If you’re having items delivered from overseas to Qatar, you can apply for a P.O. Box number at Qatar Post. You can subscribe for a P.O. Box directly from any Qatar Post office near you. You can renew your P.O. Box through the Qatar Post website. You can also check items delivered to your designated P.O. Box or you can even have your items delivered straight from your home.

With the use of these shipping services, you can shop online and use the overseas address they provide you. They will then take care of forwarding the items that you ordered to your doorstep here in Qatar.
