COVID-19 guidelines

Pre-arrival testing 

All international participants accredited for the Team Workshop are required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours prior to departure from the country of origin, regardless of their vaccination status or whether they have proof of a previous COVID-19 infection or not, and regardless of the country of origin.

Note: Qatar has recently removed the requirement of a pre-arrival test for travelers from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), European Union (EU), and United Kingdom (UK) if they are able to present proof of immunity issued by their country. 

Pre-entry registration (also referred to as the Exceptional Entry Permit) 

This document is required to travel to Qatar considering travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You will receive this document by email closer to your travel date.

Arrival testing

Fully vaccinated and/or recovered individuals are exempt from taking an arrival test in Qatar.

Those who are not fully vaccinated and have not been previously infected with COVID-19 are required to undergo a mandatory rapid antigen test within 24 hours of their arrival in Qatar. 

Ehteraz app 

Everyone entering Qatar must have downloaded the Ehteraz application, which tracks the traveler’s health status and must be presented when accessing public buildings, the metro and other sites. The Ehteraz app should be activated upon arrival in Qatar and works with some international SIM cards. Local SIM cards are sold at the airport and staff members can assist with the app.

The Ehteraz app is also required when entering shops, restaurants, shopping malls and other establishments in Qatar, including the event venues. 

Only adults with “green” health status on their app are allowed entry to these places. For fully vaccinated individuals, it is also recommended to have a hard or soft copy of your vaccination certificate (or proof of recovery), as some establishments, such as indoor restaurants and gyms, can only be accessed by vaccinated people.
