The Ministry of Public Health has launched an awareness campaign to prevent smoking in Qatar, especially in indoor places.
The Ministry’s campaign starts by raising awareness of Law No.10 of 2016 on the control of tobacco and its derivatives. The law prohibits smoking in closed public spaces, including a ban on smoking in cars with minors under 18 years. These offences can lead to a fine of up to QR3,000.
Shops that allow indoor tobacco use or allow the sale of tobacco products to minors can face steep fines and up to three months closure.
The law also prohibits advertising or promotions for tobacco products and bans the use of electronic cigarettes, sweika and other chewing tobacco products.
