Truck drivers coming from Saudi Arabia must have a negative COVID-19 test, certified by the Saudi health ministry and taken within 72 hours before arriving at the port.
Incoming drivers and trucks will not enter Qatar. Goods will be unloaded at the border port and then reloaded onto local trucks for transportation into Qatar.

Doctor Aisha Ibrahim Al Ansari, Director of Pharmacy and Drug Control says “we will soon receive the first delivery of Moderna vaccine, and while this will be of a limited quantity initially, this is an encouraging development and we can expect regular, larger deliveries of both Moderna and Pfizer Biontech vaccines, to arrive in Qatar in the next days and weeks.”
