Ministry Of Public Health Updates The List Of Covid-19 Low-Risk Countries

Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has revised the list of low-risk countries on its website. People travelling from these countries to Qatar can do home quarantine for a week after taking a Covid-19 test at the airport. 

“As the State of Qatar continues to implement its travel policies, the list of low-risk countries has been updated based on public health indicators in Qatar and around the world. Changes will come into effect on Saturday, 15th August 2020, MOPH said in a statement.

The below countries are subject to change at the discretion of the MoPH.

As per the travel policy announced by the Government Communications Office, arrivals to the State of Qatar from low-risk countries are required to take a coronavirus test upon arrival at the airport, and to sign a formal pledge to adhere to quarantine at home for a week, noting that the traveller’s status on the Ehteraz application will be yellow, which means that they are required to quarantine.

After the week has elapsed, the traveller must go to one of the dedicated health centres to get another coronavirus test. If the result is positive, the traveller will be transferred to isolation, and if it is negative, the quarantine period ends at the end of that week and the traveller’s status on the Ehteraz application will change to green.
