Americans in Qatar are a large expatriate community who numbered around 3,800 in the year 1999.[1] In recent years, this figure has more than doubled and various estimates now put the number of Americans in Qatar to be up to 8,000.[2] Most Americans within the country tend to be based in the capital city of Doha and are largely attracted by the tax-free inducement of the gulf state. American expatriates run a number of community organisations, meetups and get-togethers. There are also many American schools throughout Qatar, often consisting of U.S. teachers and students.
