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.

I have been so, so busy since Sunday, and as such unable to sit down and write my report on my visit to the Podiatry Clinic (foot clinic) in Hamad until now.

I cannot do anything but praise HMC for the quality of service I received. From arrival to departure I felt welcome and well looked after. The consultation seemed to confirm my thoughts, that I have a muscle injury not an orthopaedic problem. An MRI scan has been booked to confirm this, following which the best course of treatment can be established. The doctor seemed knowledgeable and he gave me complete confidence in his expertise.

A nice big stockpile of painkillers was prescribed, and I am now looking forward to my MRI to get to the bottom of this issue.

Thank you HMC for providing a fast, courteous and productive service. Drawing parallels with the UK’s NHS I would prefer HMC by far. For a start I didn’t have to mortgage my house to pay for hospital parking, for a second I was seen well within my expectations which I doubt would be the case with the NHS.

If you read some of my older posts you will know I am very capable of moaning. But this is a happy content and grateful post, and I hope HMC can continue with their excellent work.
