Border status

Arrivals from countries that are not included in the list of low-risk countries and in which COVID-19 testing centers have been accredited are required to obtain a virus-free certificate from there no more than 48 hours before traveling. Check MOPH website for the current list. If no accredited testing centers are available, they may arrive in Qatar but they are required to quarantine in a hotel, at their own expense.

Travelers must have a quarantine hotel reservation made at www.discoverqatar.qa for a duration of 7 days. Travelers from a low-risk country and have been in that country for at least 1 week will be allowed to travel to Qatar and home quarantine.

Travelers with temporary residence permit and personal visit visa holders must first send a request to return through the Qatar Portal website. Once approved, check the "Type of Quarantine" stated on the certificate. If this states "Hotel" then book a quarantine package hotel from Discover Qatar. They must have a copy of Exceptional Entry Permit and Discover Qatar Hotel Voucher, as well as flight documents when they check-in for flight. Dates for arrival and hotel check-in must match.

Downloading Qatar’s track and trace app, Ehteraz, is mandatory for everyone in Qatar. Travelers may be asked to show the app upon arrival.
