Bringing Insulin Medicine
Hello QL members,
I am going to bring my parents to qatar. One of them is diabetic and inject insulin daily.
She can bring the insulin medicine + injection to Qatar?
Doctor prescription & medical reports also will be brought by them.
Kindly confirm whether above is sufficient?
Thanks & Happy weekend...
Thank you all... I will advise them to bring the medicine with injection and also the reports... Appreciate your timely replies...
Any medicine (except over counter ones) without valid health card will be much costlier to buy in HMC pharmacies. Even private pharmacies need prescription. if visit is temporary better to bring adequate medicines with prescription and reports. if long term stay then health card would be the way to go.
No issues with bringing in insulin, but best to bring the medical note. I would definitely bring in the insulin (small amount at least) as as won;t have to be rushing to look for insulin when they land and might be required urgently.
Why does she need to bring this medicine plus the injection when they are easily available in Qatar? She may bring her prescription though as it may be helpful if she gets to consult a doctor in Qatar.
