Qatar Residency Permit holders currently in Lebanon will be given priority to return

By QLNews

Following the directives of His Excellency Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Lebanese holders of Qatar Residency Permits who are currently in Lebanon and wish to return to Qatar will be given priority with Exceptional Entry Permits in accordance with the travel policy in place amid the gradual lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

Lebanese holders of Qatar Residency Permits will also be able to apply for entry for their immediate family members at the Qatar Embassy in Beirut or via Metrash2.

All Lebanese nationals arriving into Qatar will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival to the Hamad International Airport and are required to adhere to the previously announced quarantine procedures.

All arrivals into the State of Qatar are required to download and install the Ehteraz application on their smartphones.

Qatar has expressed solidarity with Lebanon as it deals with the aftermath of an enormous explosion that rocked the country's capital on Tuesday.

Upon the directives of HH the Amir, Qatar sent urgent medical assistance to Lebanon. An Amiri Air Force plane carrying the medical aid left for Rafic Hariri International Airport on Wednesday morning. The shipment includes essential medical supplies to treat those injured in the Beirut explosion.

In addition to the medical assistance, Qatar also sent a fully equipped team from the Qatari Search and Rescue Team of the Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) to participate in the search and rescue operations in Beirut.

Qatar was quick to offer a helping hand to Lebanon and express its support to the country to help alleviate the impact of the large-scale devastation.
