Qatar has been working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of its citizens and residents as it fights the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with all its might.

The Government of the State of Qatar today announced the temporary closure of in-person money exchange and transfer service offices in Qatar starting, effective 26 March. This is a part of wider measures introduced by the Government to close non-essential shops and public spaces.

The most important thing that the citizens and residents of Qatar can do to tackle COVID-19 is by reducing day-to-day contact with other people.

Throughout the period of closure, money can be transferred through online exchange services, mobile applications and Ooredoo Money. All services allow users to transfer money abroad instantly either online or through their phone.

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.
