GCC and EU health apps are now valid for entering Qatar

DOHANEWS, 16/03/2022

Qatar has announced a new travel and return policy that will go into effect starting 7pm on Wednesday.

Both GCC and EU citizens and residents who are either fully vaccinated or recovered can now use their country’s COVID-19 tracking applications in Qatar, according to the Ministry of Public Health’s latest update. This means that they will no longer have to complete the mandatory Ehteraz pre-travel registration.

Valid GCC health applications:

  • Bahrain: BeAware
  • Saudi Arabia: Tawakkalna
  • Kuwait: Shlonik
  • Oman: Tarassud
  • UAE: Al Hosn

As for EU nationals and residents, the Union’s COVPass application will be accepted in Qatar.

Taking a PCR test before travelling to Qatar is now also optional for GCC and EU residents and nationals alike, unless the departure country is on the Red Health Measures list. For travellers who choose to opt out of taking a PCR test, they must have a rapid antigen test done at an authorised medical centre within 24 hours of arrival in Qatar.

According to the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), the COVID-19 vaccine immunity is valid for 12 months after taking the booster shot. As for those who have recovered from the virus, their immunity is also valid for 12 months.
