The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has announced a new travel requirement for all travellers (Qatar citizens, residents and visitors) entering Qatar who are coming from China. From 6 pm Qatar time on Tuesday, 3 January 2023, all travelers coming from China (regardless of vaccination/immunity status) are required to submit a negative PCR test result at the check-in counter taken within 48 hours of the time of departure to the State of Qatar.

The Ministry stated that the policy update is a temporary measure that has been made to safeguard the passengers coming to Qatar and the community against the virus, with China currently experiencing widespread circulation of COVID-19 within its population.
