Qatar Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has announced a set of updates to its COVID-19 Travel and Return Policy

The policy updates have been made to facilitate the process of travel and return to the State of Qatar while fully adhering to all measures that will prevent and protect the community from the threat of COVID-19. The updates to the policy have been made based on the latest COVID-19 indicators in Qatar and internationally.

 

The Ministry of Public Health stated that Qatar’s Travel and Return Policy has been a key measure in the nation’s COVID-19 strategy and that enforcing a strict policy for travelers entering Qatar has played a significant role in Qatar’s successful COVID-19 Strategy.

 

The following is a summary of the key changes that will be implemented and take effect from Sunday, 4 September 2022 at 6pm local time in the State of Qatar.

  • The removal of the list of Countries Subject to COVID-19 Red Health Measures.
  • The removal of quarantine requirements for all travelers arriving from abroad, with the exception of travelers who test positive for COVID-19 who are required to undergo isolation and quarantine in accordance with the procedures followed in the State of Qatar.

Regardless of the individual’s vaccination status, the following pre-arrival and post-arrival COVID-19 testing measures are required for travelers coming to Qatar:

  • Citizens and Residents: Must undergo a rapid antigen test (RAT) within a period of 24 hours upon arrival in the State of Qatar at a Primary Health Care Corporation health center or a Ministry of Public Health approved private medical center.
