Expired exceptional entry permit can be extended now for 30 days

By QLNews

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.

From August 1, 2020, residents who are stuck abroad due to COVID-19 could apply for exceptional entry permits through the Qatar Portal website.

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.

How to apply for Entry Permit?

- Create new account on Qatar Portal or Log in to your existing account (if available).

- Click on “Apply for Exceptional Entry Permit”.

- Read terms and conditions and prepare all required attachments before starting the application.

- Enter the application page and fill in the required information correctly and completely as shown in the passport.

- Enter your email correctly to receive approval on your application.

- Print permit and keep a copy of it and a copy of the quarantine undertaking to be presented to the airport official.

The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) recently revised the list of low-risk countries. The list of low-risk countries will be reviewed and updated regularly based on public health indicators in Qatar and around the world.

Please remove this exceptional permit system for those who wants to go for vacation to their home countries and kindly remove mandatory quarantine too for those... people missing their families in this hard time.
