Of all of the countries in the world, Qatar is the leader in highest per capita GDP. This is due in large part to the country’s vast oil reserves and industry, accounting for roughly 70 percent of the government’s revenue, 60 percent of its GDP and 85 percent of its earning from exporting this natural resource.
If your business has been considering breaking into Qatar’s emerging markets, you may have heard that Qatar virtual phone numbers are the most efficient way to do so. In this article, we’ll cover the technology behind virtual phone numbers, the types of phone numbers available, and why Qatar is quickly becoming the go-to choice for entrepreneurs.
What are Qatar Virtual Phone Numbers?
The technology behind Qatar virtual phone numbers is driven by cloud computing, particularly advancements made in VoIP (“Voice over Internet Protocol”). Essentially, when Qatar virtual phone numbers are dialed, the calls are instantly routed through the internet and delivered to another phone number, which is the “destination phone number.”
Qatar virtual phone numbers function just like “normal” phone numbers, while also being identical in look and usage. For instance, a Qatari dialing your Qatar virtual phone number doesn’t need to dial outside of the country to reach your business headquartered outside of the country. Similarly, virtual numbers mirror the same country code and numbering sequence that Qataris are familiar with, aiding your company’s effort to blend in with domestic businesses.
Types of Qatar Virtual Phone Numbers
Let’s take a look at some of the most common Qatar virtual phone numbers available from United World Telecom:
Local Phone Numbers: These local phone numbers, also referred to as “geographic phone numbers,” enable you to specifically target cities and regions throughout Qatar to access local markets.
Toll Free Numbers: As you may know, toll free numbers charge the subscriber (your business) and not the caller. Toll free Qatar virtual phone numbers enable your business to extend toll free service to Qatari citizens and businesses that would otherwise be impossible with domestic toll free phone numbers.
Vanity Phone Numbers: If your business is looking to add a unique marketing aspect to your Qatar virtual phone number, then vanity phone numbers are key. Simply put, vanity phone numbers are phone numbers with a visually appealing set of digits that are more easy to remember than a random set of digits that comprise normal phone numbers. By tying these Qatar virtual phone numbers into your business, it immediately gives you an advantage over other phone numbers and raises your brand awareness.

Why Choose Virtual Phone Numbers?
As mentioned in the introduction, Qatar is becoming the first choice among entrepreneurs that want to be on the front line of business. Since the 1960’s the country has undergone massive changes and opened its borders to commerce, leading to the world’s highest GDP per capita income in the world. Surrounding countries like Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have taken notice and partnered with the country for trade, particularly in the country’s massive oil and petroleum industries. Consequently, other industries have sprung up in Qatar and the country has seen an unprecedented modernization in recent decades to accommodate visitors and businesses alike. It’s no surprise that Qatar has been considered one of the top candidates to host the Olympics, narrowly missing a bid in 2016 but is up for consideration in 2020.
