The State of Qatar has reopened its borders to international travellers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with vaccines that are approved for use by the Ministry of Public Health in Qatar.
A new streamlined set of measures designed to make travelling to Qatar as easy as possible, while maintaining the necessary precautions to continue to protect against the spread of COVID-19, has been implemented and is effective immediately.
Nationals from 80 countries including India can travel to Qatar and they do not require a prior visa. Travellers can obtain visa waiver open arrival to destination, reported the Times of India.
Indians who have received Covishield jabs can travel to Qatar.
However, travellers are advised to check the entry requirements of the country they are travelling from and will return to from Qatar, before booking any flights and should understand that those policies can change with very little notice.
Qatar Tourism is looking forward to welcoming international visitors back to the State and showcase the best of the country, as Airline prepares to welcome the world for the FIFA World Cup 2022 and wishes all visitors a safe journey.
However, the Ministry of Public Health advises all visitors to continue to be vigilant and adhere with all preventive measures including wearing face masks which are mandatory in Airlines’ (indoors as well as outdoors at all times), avoiding crowded places and sanitizing hands regularly.
