Despite the fact that Trump is banning citizens of multiple countries from entering the US, the rest of the world is managing to stay welcoming. In particular, we're talking about Qatar, who just very recently granted visa-free entry into their country to citizens of 80 different countries.
A brave act that will hopefully have a positive effect on Qatar's tourism industry and economy, it goes to show that friendly hospitality and grudge-free travel can still exist. As for visitors, the Middle Eastern country is a beautiful place to visit, with a lengthy shoreline along the Persian Gulf, an arid desert, and plenty of beaches and dunes to explore. Venture to the country's capital, Doha, and you can also stand beneath awe-inspiring skyscrapers and soak up ultramodern architecture.
According to a press release by Qatar Airways "Nationals of the following 33 countries will not require prior visa arrangements and can obtain a visa waiver upon arrival in Qatar. The waiver will be valid for 180 days from the date of issuance and entitle its holder to spend up to 90 days in Qatar, during either a single trip or on multiple trips."

And while you'll notice The UK, Canada, and the US aren't included in the above, they do receive visa-free entry as well — simply for a shorter timespan. The press release goes on to say "Nationals of the following 47 countries will not require prior visa arrangements and can obtain a visa waiver upon arrival in Qatar. The waiver will be valid for 30 days from the date of issuance and entitle its holder to spend up to 30 days in Qatar, during either a single trip or on multiple trips. This waiver may be extended for a further 30 days."
