Qatar Reopens to International Travellers

The State of Qatar has reopened its borders to international travellers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The new measures will allow people who are fully vaccinated with vaccines that are approved for use by the Ministry of Public Health in Qatar to visit Qatar without the need for quarantine.

The new arrangements will also make it easier for citizens and residents of Qatar to travel in and out of the country, enabling fully vaccinated people to bypass the quarantine requirement when returning to Qatar. All visitors – vaccinated or non-vaccinated – will be required to undertake a PCR test up to 72 hours prior to travel.

However, travellers are advised to check the entry requirement of the country they are travelling from and will return to from Qatar, before booking any flights and should understand that those policies can change with very little notice.

In order to visit Qatar, international visitors, citizens, and residents must register and upload required documentation such as a vaccination certificate, valid PCR test up to 72 hours prior to travel, and personal details through the Ehteraz website.

Travellers must apply for authorisation through the Ehteraz website (free of charge) at least 12 hours before their planned departure to Qatar. All inbound travellers are advised to submit their application as soon as they have all their required documentation to ensure they can board their flights as planned.

Airlines are advised to only let passengers board who have a valid travel authorisation for Qatar from the above effective date.
