Customers to receive refunds of quarantine packages within the next 14 days

By QLNews

Qatar has imposed new entry requirements for passengers arriving from six countries – Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka with travelers from these countries needing to enter extended periods of mandatory quarantine of 10 days.

As a result of these new and immediate requirements, Discover Qatar canceled all customers’ existing hotel bookings, regardless of country of origin, for Welcome Home quarantine accommodation from April 29 and anyone holding a booking will need to rebook.

Yesterday, Qatar Airways tweeted, “We are pleased to announce that all of the Welcome Home bookings canceled as a result of the new MoPH entry rules have been processed. You should receive full refunds within the next 14 days.”

Mandatory quarantine is a requirement for passengers from the six countries arriving in Qatar as their final destination and this is regardless of previous vaccination history or immunity against COVID-19. 

Effective April 26, 2021, arrivals into Doha on flights from the six countries will also need to present their PCR test taken within 48 hours of the flight departure when checking in.

Maintaining public health and safety is the primary concern of Discover Qatar whilst also accommodating those who need to travel to the country.

The stringent hotel quarantine requirements continue to protect Qatar and its residents while relieving the burden on medical staff and facilities by safeguarding against any COVID-19 additional transmissions.
