Entry into Qatar
The State of Qatar has temporarily suspended (as of 9 March 2020) the entry of all those traveling from the following countries into Qatar:
Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Syria, and Thailand.
The suspension affects all individuals intending to enter from these countries, including visas upon arrival, those with a residence or work permit, and temporary visitors.
Authorities have placed a temporary hold on stopover services in Doha for the purpose of connection, booked through Qatar Airways’ partner and subsidiary, Discover Qatar, or booked directly through qatarairways.com.
Passengers with onward connections will not be permitted to leave Hamad International Airport (HIA).
All current stopover bookings will, therefore, be canceled. A full refund will be offered, with support offered to make alternative travel plans with Qatar Airways.
