Non-Vaccinated traveller from India allowed in Qatar?

By Yasir Riz

Hai. I'm travelling to Qatar from India for the first time for work. I've only been vaccinated one dose only. Am I allowed to travel to Qatar without taking both doses?

I know that I've to stay in Hotel for 10 days since I'm coming from Special Risk Zone countries. But the instruction on the MOPH website is not clear.

MOPH has announced the following updates regarding the COVID-19 travel and return policy, effective midday on Monday, August 2, 2021:
  • ​Updates to the country classification lists.
  • For those coming from the following Special Risk 6-Country Zone (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka): 
    • ​​Those vaccinated/recovering from COVID-19 in the State of Qatar are subject to a two-day hotel quarantine and are allowed to leave the hotel on the second day if the result of the PCR test is negative.
    • The rest of the people are subject to a hotel quarantine for a period of 10 days.

The rest of the people includes non-vaccinated persons also?

Please do the needful.
