Travellers, both citizens and residents, presenting the approved apps from these countries and regions will be exempt from completing the pre-entry online registration. In addition, fully vaccinated (i.e., those who received a third COVID-19 shot or who had a second dose within the last 9 months) and recovered (within the last 12 months) travellers are not required to present a pre-travel RT-PCR test upon arrival.

However, they are still required to obtain a rapid antigen test at a private clinic in Qatar within 24 hours of arrival.

A pre-travel RT-PCR test is required for unvaccinated/non-immune travellers, in addition to a 5-day quarantine period.

For guidance on vaccination, home/hotel quarantine and COVID-19 test-related measures*, please refer to the current Travel Policy:
