I understand its Govts discretion however, I suggest that at least give residents 2-3 days to return. I am sure sense will prevail. rather than simply banning entry, let the residents go through any process Govt decides.

How can you compare visitors and residents on same scale ?

Most racist decision on history . Nepal has zero confirmed corona cases . Suspending travelers from Poor countries like Nepal will not help Qatar to prevent spreads of Covid 19 .

At least give residents and citizens advance notice so they can cancel trips abroad or come back within a certain time. people went on company business for couple of days and now can't come back.

I think Qatar is not only considered the reported cases in above countries. Considered no of passengers coming from theses countries. it increases the risk.

this is insane if you really want to do this at least give the citizens and residents advance information not to travel as we will ban from this date. many other countries have way more cases than some in the list. I don't know who came up with this genius list?

This is just a racist list. Nepal has one confirmed case, and Pakistan 5. Why are they on this list? Many more cases in Kuwait and Bahrain, why no ban for them?
