Expired exceptional entry permit can be extended now for 30 days
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Qatar has worked diligently to protect the health of its citizens and residents.
With its success in flattening the curve, Qatar gradually moved from phase to phase of its easing of COVID-19 restrictions plan.
Qatar Portal accepts applications for entry permits for employers, individuals or companies, government or private sectors, residents, and their family members holding QIDs. These permits would allow their return to Qatar.
An original permit issued for entry is valid for 30 days from the date of the issue.
The Qatar Portal and the official Twitter account of Qatar Government Portal "Hukoomi" have announced the extension of the expired exceptional entry permit to Qatar for a period of 30 days.
According to the "Hukoomi" account on Twitter, holders of expired exceptional entry permits can extend the validity of their permits for a period of 30 days, from the date of submitting the extension request. It is a condition that the previously approved permit be expired, and that the owner of the permit must not be inside the country.
There are 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.
