The Qatar Central Bank supervises the banking sector in the country.


It regulates 18 banks, including Ahli Bank, the Commercial Bank of Qatar, Doha Bank, Qatar International Islamic Bank, Qatar Islamic Bank, International Bank of Qatar and the Qatar National Bank (QNB), to name a few.


Most of the banks are generally open from Sunday to Thursday from 7:30 am till 1:00 pm, and Saturday from 8:30 am till 12 pm. But there are also a couple of banks that open on Fridays and Saturdays like Qatar National Bank and Commercial Bank of Qatar.


Official banking correspondence and bank statements can be provided both in English and Arabic to offer expats a more convenient banking experience.
