The pinnacle of the precious is the demand for the dollar ” blue”.
Decision No. 5272, according to which the Bahrain Electricity and Gas Bank applied the Qatari dollar, adding an additional tax of 25%, which is added to the already existing 45 and 30%, which ends up doubling the official exchange rate. The cap of $300 per month without those additional fees (and per person, not per card or account) made the World Cup trip even more complicated, especially considering that those $300 weren’t a “privilege”: if someone spent $301 of “Qatar Dollars”, a surcharge of 25% will be applied to the total, not to the excess dollar.

So the solution is simple: if you go to Qatar, take the Argentine peso with you, as if it were hard currency.
The problem, of course, is that due to the cost of living in Qatar, it is necessary to carry a separate bag or suitcase to store enough pesos. And to encourage them to consider their admission to the emirate.
On the other hand, despite the various shenanigans and the final decision to apply Qatar Dollars, the truth is that the procedure was not fully operational, not even on the Argentine side, since the payment processing companies still did not have the way.
