Bookings open for hotel quarantine packages for arrivals from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka

By QLNews

With Qatar mandating 10-day hotel quarantine for passengers arriving on flights from or transiting via Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka, Discover Qatar has now opened bookings for the respective quarantine packages.

On its website, Discover Qatar states that the 10-night self-funded quarantine packages are available in 3, 4 or 5-star hotels.

Passengers from these six (High Risk) countries can make bookings for the available dates, starting from April 29 to August 31, 2021.

Passengers from these countries will not be allowed to board their flights without a confirmed quarantine reservation, Discover Qatar specifies.

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.

There are no exemptions from quarantine for those who have been vaccinated or have previously tested positive, Discover Qatar highlighted.

Discover Qatar further issued the following information:

For existing bookings arriving on or before April 28 23:59 Local Doha time

If you have already made your hotel reservation in a different hotel, and are arriving before April 28, 23:59, from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines or Sri Lanka your current Discover Qatar voucher is valid for travel. Discover Qatar will advise you of any changes to your booking and quarantine requirements on arrival.

You will not be asked to pay any additional costs between your original hotel booked and one of the mandatory Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka Quarantine hotels, if there is a price difference. Equally, you will be eligible to claim for a refund if your original quarantine booking was more expensive than the options available.

For existing bookings arriving on or after April 29 00:00 Doha local time

If you have already made your hotel reservation in a different hotel, and are arriving after April 29, 00:00 local time Doha, Discover Qatar will contact you before departure to confirm that your original booking is cancelled. You will need to re-book a hotel following the instructions provided in the e-mail.

You will be required to pay for your new booking in full. Your original booking will be refunded within 15 working days.

New bookings made from April 27 19:00 Doha local time

All new bookings will be required to book a Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka Quarantine hotel for your mandatory quarantine stay in Qatar.

All new bookings will be required to present a Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka Quarantine hotel voucher to be permitted to board a flight departing from or transiting via Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka.

Any bookings made on or after April 27, 19:00 Doha local time which are not in a Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka Quarantine hotel for a flight originating in or transiting via Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka will be cancelled at 100 percent cancellation fee.

Discover Qatar further cautioned travelers to be mindful when making their quarantine bookings. 

If you are not on a flight from or transiting via Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka you should not book a Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka Quarantine hotel for your mandatory quarantine stay in Qatar, the website underlined. In this case, you will not be permitted to check-in and you will not be entitled to a refund.
