Random COVID tests for travellers arriving at Hamad International Airport
Random COVID-19 tests will be conducted on a small number of passengers arriving at Hamad International Airport, these tests will be free of charge. “As part of Qatar’s comprehensive measures to protect the health and safety of travellers and the community, the Ministry of Public Health, through its medical teams in Hamad International Airport, are conducting random COVID-19 tests on a small sample of travellers arriving into Qatar” said the Ministry of Public Health.
Any traveller may be asked to take part in the random testing and this will be in addition to the existing mandatory pre-travel PCR test requirement. After the test which is free of charge and should only take a couple of minutes, you will be free to continue your passage into Qatar. Your Ehteraz status will remain green while the PCR test results are processed, which should be within 24 hours. Travellers who’s PCR test comes back positive will be notified by SMS regarding the required actions they must then take.
