Non-QID holders can now register on the EHTERAZ app through the visa option.

Aside from supermarkets, more establishments have announced that they are now implementing the screening of GREEN status on the EHTERAZ app before entry.

[Update: June 3]

Some of the community members have mentioned on Tuesday, June 2, that some people who do not have QID were allowed into the hypermarkets by showing their passport and visa so we reached out today Wednesday, June 3, to the hypermarkets and supermarkets to verify this.

Carrefour, SPAR, Mega Mart, Safari, Ansar Gallery, and Rawabi, all responded that only those with EHTERAZ app on their mobile phone with GREEN healthy status can be allowed inside. According to the Regional Manager of Lulu Hypermarket, those without QID and under tourist/business/visit visas can show their passport and visa copy to enter. Al Meera replied with "Please make sure to show your visa to allow you to enter Al Meera branch."

In response to the recent decision to make the installation of the app mandatory, several hypermarkets and supermarkets in Qatar now require customers to show the EHTERAZ app upon entry and only those with "GREEN" code, indicating a healthy status, will be allowed inside.

Al Meera Consumer Goods and Monoprix Qatar announced on Tuesday, June 2, on their social media accounts this decision to ensure the safety of everyone. Carrefour later announced on their social media accounts on Wednesday, June 3. Lulu Hypermarket also announced the decision on its website while SPAR posted on their Instagram story.

Take note that the QR Health Code within EHTERAZ App now shows a timestamp to ensure that the health status is up-to-date.

As an alternative if you're not able to download the EHTERAZ app on your smartphone or your status is not green, you can still shop for your grocery needs at these grocery delivery services in Qatar. You can order online and have it delivered straight to your doorstep.
