All passengers arriving in Doha on flights that originate from the UK will be required to stay at one of the following dedicated quarantine hotels:

  • Intercontinental Doha Hotel (5-star)
  • Mercure Grand Doha (4-star)

All passengers who have already made their hotel reservation in a different hotel, and are arriving before 6 am local time on 23 December 2020, will have their reservations automatically transferred upon arrival.

All passengers who are not on a flight from the UK, should not book either of the hotels for their mandatory quarantine stay in Qatar; they will not be permitted to check-in unless their boarding pass states that their journey commenced in the UK, and they will also not be entitled to a refund.

For arrivals up to 6 am on 23 December any differences in the cost of the passengers' original quarantine hotel will be eligible for a refund claim. After 6 am local time on 23 December, passengers will be required to pay any additional costs between their original hotel booked and either of the mandatory UK quarantine hotels, if there is a price difference. Equally, passengers will be eligible to claim for a refund if their original quarantine booking was more expensive than the options available.

Three more countries were added to must quarantine in dedicated hotels list as of December 22. Read more about it here: Arrivals from UK, South Africa, Netherlands and Denmark must stay in dedicated quarantine hotels: Discover Qatar
