HIA advises passengers traveling during the Eid Al-Adha holidays

By QLNews

Hamad International Airport (HIA) advises passengers traveling during the Eid Al-Adha holiday period to check-in online and arrive three hours prior to their flight to ensure a smooth travel experience.

Passengers must present the green health status on their Ehteraz application, or a negative PCR certificate issued no more than 72 hours to enter the terminal building.

HIA’s self-service check-in and bag-drop facilities are also available, which allow passengers to check-in, print their boarding passes and bag tags; tag their bags, and drop them at the bag drop swiftly before proceeding to border control. 

For the convenience and safety of departing and returning passengers, access to the arrival and departure terminal building is restricted to traveling passengers only. HIA advises to conduct pick-ups and drop-offs at the short-term car park and avoid using the curbside.

HIA recommends passengers keep themselves updated on the travel requirements of the country they are traveling to for a smooth check-in process at HIA. Passengers are reminded that check-in closes sixty minutes prior to departure time.

During security checks, passengers are requested to ensure that they are not carrying any prohibited items such as liquids, aerosols, and gels, and to pack any liquid containers in a clear, re-sealable plastic bag with each being 100ml or less.

Electronic items larger than mobile phones need to be removed from bags and placed in trays for X-ray screening.

Small vehicles powered by lithium batteries, such as hoverboards, are prohibited from the carriage. Passengers are also advised to minimize traveling with pets due to the holiday peak time.

Bag Wrap facilities are also available at HIA’s terminal.

Passengers departing from HIA are advised to download the ‘HIAQatar’ mobile app available for both Android and iPhone for updates and to assist in making the passenger's journey more seamless with real-time information about flight status, baggage claim, time, and direction to boarding gates and food, beverage and retail offers from Qatar Duty Free (QDF).

All arriving passengers terminating in Doha must register and upload all required documents on the following website www.ehteraz.gov.qa.

Following this application, all Doha terminating passengers will be issued a Travel Authorization, which is required to be presented to the airline at the point of departure to be allowed to fly to Qatar.

Passengers should follow the signage in the terminal or ask our staff for assistance to make the arrival process simple.

All traveling passengers must wear face masks at all times, maintain physical distance and follow all safety guidelines present at the airport for their safety.

Good news. Now you can solve existing problems without hindrance and not worry about not having enough time for everything. Even https://edupro.cc/subjects/human-performance-and-recreation/ wrote about it, which is very strange but nice. Good material, I recommend.

Just called HIA to clarify regarding the requirement for negative PCR to enter the terminal, as stated in this article. They said there's no requirement for PCR certificate for departing passengers from their side whatever the case may be.

Requesting the editor to clarify and correct the article.
