On arrival and in quarantine at home for 7 days, residents returning to Qatar must take a coronavirus test and thermal screening. An extra examination must be taken at one of the dedicated health centers on day 6. Depending on the results of this second test, extra action may be needed.

Travelers may be asked upon arrival to view the app. You will find more information on Qatar’s criteria for entry and arrival on the GCO website.

It is still possible for transit passengers to travel to another destination to fly via Qatar, and several flights continue to operate. If you are planning to leave or transit via Qatar, you should check with your airline or travel company for the latest details. At short notice, flights are subject to change or cancellation.
