Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Qatar COVID entry restrictions?

First of all, you must confirm whether the country you come from is considered exceptional red, red or green. In either case, you will have specific restrictions when entering Qatar.

All incoming visitors must take a COVID test before the trip. Make sure to take a PCR test within 72 hours of your arrival and show the negative results. According to the classification of your country, you may or may not need to quarantine.

As the COVID-19 restrictions frequently change, we recommend you check our product page FAQ section to get up-to-date information. Also, remember that you need the Qatar Entry Registration. It’s mandatory for all international travelers.

Do I need a COVID vaccine or vaccination certificate to enter Qatar?

No, you don't. As of today, COVID vaccination passports or certificates are not mandatory to enter Qatar.

Now if you are a Covid vaccine certificate holder coming from green list countries, you won't need to follow a quarantine.

Approved vaccines are Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson.

Travelers that have received full vaccination of Sinopharm, Sinovac, Sputnik V, Covaxin (conditionally approved vaccines), must also present a Serology Antibody test with a positive result before travelling to Qatar. Passengers that do not show these documents must follow a 7-day quarantine

People who have received two doses of a conditionally approved vaccine followed by one dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and after 14 days from the last dose will be considered fully immune.

Since information may change quickly, we advise you to follow up on the latest Qatar travel updates and/or contact your local embassy.

What is the Qatar Entry Registration, and how do I apply?

The Qatar Entry Registration is a health declaration that requests personal and health details from travelers. It’s valid for up to 15 days and provides a single entry to Qatar. However, it doesn’t replace a visa, which means you must get one if your country demands it.

The application process has three steps:

  • First: Complete the online form with personal information and choose a processing time.
  • Second: Verify that your details are correct and pay for the service with a debit or credit card.
  • Third: Attach the necessary documentation and apply.

iVisa.com Recommends

Visit Bin Ghannam Island, locally known as Purple Island. It’s only one hour away from Doha, near Al Khor city. Explore its natural beauty, exotic wildlife, and peaceful environment. During the second millennium BC, the island was the main site of the purple dye industry of the Kassite civilization. In ancient times, purple was related to royalty, which meant the industry thrived back in the day. The island offers kayak and hike opportunities. Also, you can find campsites. We recommend visiting between November and February when the weather is cooler. Unfortunately, the island doesn’t have any facilities, which means you must bring all the supplies during your trip.

Continue to the Desert Falls Water and Adventure Park, one of the most impressive theme parks in the Middle East. It offers 25 water slides, rides, and attractions. Explore the Katara Beach Club, a gorgeous beach club with plenty of leisure activities for all ages. Check the gondola rides, jet skis, and robot sharks. We’re sure you will have a blast with your whole family. Qatar is the perfect destination for your
