Hi there, anybody please give a suggestion for my clarifications. my wife has to get a covaxin almost 4 months before, but still, it vaccine was approved by the Qatar government. now few days before they issued the visa. I booked a hotel quarantine also 10 days with an air ticket for next month 1 week. I am confused I bring my wife from India to Doha. Give me a proper reply. even I can't go in Qatar government also
Parents travelling from Mumbai to Doha with unvaccinated children aged 8 yrs and 14 yrs should book hotel for 2 days or 10 days ? All are resident permit holders and parents are vaccinated in Qatar.
I called MOI helpline and they advised for 2 days.
Has anyone travelled with unvaccinated children above 12 years?
Need some clarity about the rule..
Why you all say, its must to quarantine for visitors for 10 days if they have got 2 doses of vaccinations outside qatar?
Qatar moph new update says
Those who have been vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 in the State of Qatar are subject to a two-day hotel quarantine and are allowed to leave the hotel on the second day if the result of the PCR test is negative.
Which means as i understand it says those "who are vaccinated" or "those who got covid inside qatar and recovered in qatar" ( it doesn't say those who are vaccinated inside qatar)
Because the vaccines doesn't change country to country , if you take pfizer inside qatar or india or anywhere, its still the same vaccination, there no even a drop of change. So why would qatar government allow only the people who took vaccination inside qatar ?(even in the full moph travel document they only talk about vaccination approved by qatar, not vaccinated inside qatat)
But for the people who got covid inside qatar and recovered in qatar , has a meaning because the qatar system of tracking and medication is far more better than in any of these countries, for an example if someone got covid and treated or just self quarantined, qatar government has all the details..but in our countries if someone gets covid or and if they self quarantined there is no any valid tracking or proofs to show...
So thats why they only allow 2 days quarantine for people who got covid only inside qatar, but for the vaccination i think it will be okay if you take it anywhere with valid proof.. please check and confirm..
And also in there travel policy (full document) when they talk about vaccinated people they doesn't say it must in qatar, they only say approved vaccines by qatar....
But when they talk about covid recovery patients they mention it inside qatar (and some gcc countries)
Please correct me if i wrong...
I'm from Srilanka and I intend to travel to Qatar on work visa soon. I have taken both the jabs of sinopharm and it's passed the 14 day mark since the second jab. Should I book hotel quarantine for 2 days or 10 days to Qatar? Please clarify
Is it mandatory that 14 days need to complete after 2 nd dose of vaccination from india (covishield ) to travel qatar for 2 days hotel quarntine or compulsary 10 days hotel quarantine in qatar even after 2nd dose with 14 days completion of indian vaccine...if anybody know please clarify...also please update for family visit and residential visa approval process for expatriates..
@Ainz you are not eligible for 2 days Quarantine
2 days Quarantine option only for those who took vaccine in Qatar or recovered from Covid 19 in Qatar
rest all are subjected for 10 days Quarantine
So if you are traveling from India, Pakistan on visit, vaccination does not make any difference as you must quarantine for 10 days unless you are resident with vaccination in Qatar
Two days quarantine is applicable only if you took both shots of the vaccine in Qatar or recovered from Covid while you are in Qatar (using Ehteraz they will verify, I think.)
Vaccinated outside Qatar will not be considered, (whatever vaccine you took) so 10days Quarantine is MUST.
So if we're traveling from INDIA and are fully vaccinated in India with covishield (approved vaccine), then 2 day quarantine until test result for Covid-19 comes. If tested negative for covid-19, no quarantine. So we don't need to book 10 day quarantine hotel right?
