Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) has recently released a circular regarding confirmed reservations in quarantine hotels for the passengers travelling out of Doha with a return booking. However, many residents are confused about the requirements prior to the departure. In this context, we reached out to QCAA to have a clear understanding as to who can and cannot depart without quarantine hotel bookings. Scroll all the way down to know the answers to the most frequently asked questions on booking quarantine hotel requirements before departure.

Q: Are there any other specific documents that travelers need to present to board a flight to Qatar other than quarantine hotel booking and visa?

Travelers who are QID holders and currently are out of the State of Qatar need to receive authorisation to be able to travel to Qatar. However, QID holders from low-risk countries are only allowed to enter Qatar from 1 August - 15 September, and the list of such countries has not been announced yet. Therefore, QID holders are advised not to book a quarantine package until approval to return to Qatar has been confirmed. Details of the approval process will be published when the eligibility and guidelines are confirmed by the relevant authorities.

Q: Is the hotel voucher refundable?

No, the voucher obtained from the hotel through the “Discover Qatar" website is nonrefundable.
