The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) updated the quarantine policy on their website yesterday.

According to the information available, ​the following groups of citizens and residents returning to Qatar from countries not included in the Green List are exempted from hotel quarantine, and will be subject to home quarantine:

- ​Unvaccinated children aged below 18, whether returning from travel alone or with their parents, are home quarantined for (7) days, provided that both parents are vaccinated. 

- Vaccinated individuals who received their second dose in Qatar and have not completed the specified period of (14) days from the date of the second dose are home quarantined for (7) days or until they complete the duration of (14) days following the second dose, whichever is shorter.

- Unvaccinated individuals aged 75 and above are home quarantined with one escort from the same household.

- Pregnant women returning to the country with their vaccinated husbands, or a vaccinated relative from the same household.

- Lactating mothers and their infants aged 2 years and below returning to the country with their vaccinated husbands or a vaccinated relative from the same household.

- Unvaccinated patients treated abroad at the expense of the State with one escort from the same household. This applies after assessing the patient’s health condition by the relevant department at MoPH. 

​​The above-mentioned groups must sign an undertaking showing their compliance with the home quarantine measures.

However, for those aged below 18, their parents or guardian shall sign the undertaking affirming their children’s compliance with the home quarantine regulations. 

​​​Exemptions from the quarantine policy for vaccinated individuals do not apply for travelers returning from India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.
