Applications for Exceptional Entry Permit now open on Qatar Portal

By QLNews

It's been a step many residents wishing to return to Qatar have been waiting for, and now as of August 1st, the application for Exceptional Entry Permit to Qatar is live on Qatar Portal.

The temporary portal is to aid in the return of residents who have been stuck abroad since the temporary entry ban on flights into Qatar was implemented, amidst the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, to Qatar. 

The process was previously announced on July 23rd in preperation for Phase 3 of the easing of restrictions in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, and allows applications to be done under two types of accounts - one for Qatar residents and citizens and another for visitors and business representatives. 

For Qatar residents and citizens, one needs to enter the QID and a personal mobile number, while visitors have to enter the email and number before moving to the next step of adding personal details.

Check out our previous article for the full application process guide by clicking here.

For more information, call 109 from inside Qatar or +974 44069999 from outside Qatar.

For any queries, or concerns related to COVID-19 in Qatar, the public can contact a 24/7 hotline set up by the Ministry. The hotline number is 16000 and is toll-free.

Here's everything you need to know about the virus, including ways to protect yourself.

@analyst1, as mentioned you applied successfully for the permit, has it been approved and did you get the permit? How long did it take?

Appreciate your help as the one I applied on 2nd August has status "processing".

By Ali35• 1 year 11 months ago.

Has any body received permission to travel to Qatar from South East Asia (Pakistan, India, Nepal, BD or Sri Lanka )?

I have applied successfully for one of my wards stranded overseas.

I think if one does not meet the requirements e.g. stay abroad and age etc or some disease then this error message might be appearing.

An other possibility is that system was down or overloaded at that time.
