How to Issue Health Card in Qatar

The citizens of Qatar as well as residents may easily apply for a health card in order to access the convenient services that are provided by the hospitals and public healthcare facilities in the State.

Provide all of the appropriate documents and personal data. Afterward, a PHCC health file number will be issued to you.

Once prompted, you will have to present your passport copy, your ID, and a passport-size photo (4cm X 3cm) for Qatari adults. Children need to provide their birth certificate with their Qatar personal identity number or passport. They will also be required to submit a passport-size photograph. For first-time issue, the vaccination card will also be required.

For GCC National Adult Residents, you will need to submit a copy of passport. You also have the option to submit your ID with the Qatar personal identity number. Submit a passport-size photograph. If you will be renewing your old health card, bring along your old health card as well.
