The U.S. Embassy in Doha invites current and emerging Qatari professional leaders in a variety of fields to cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts through the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). The majority of IVLP exchanges include visits to U.S. communities over three weeks, although projects vary based on themes and COVID-19 restrictions.

Themes include but are not limited to the arts, sports, journalism, international cooperation, security, government relations, entrepreneurship, law and order, volunteerism, and community engagement.
