Qatar eases travel policy to prep for FIFA World Cup

The Covid-19 travel and return policy in Qatar has been revised and now has eased measures in order to make things more convenient for visitors during the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In an interview with the Gulf Times, Tawfeeq Travel Group CEO Rehan Ali Syed said that “This is a very timely move by the authorities to tell the world that Qatar has taken the utmost precautions to ensure the virus is kept under control. Opening up the country is extremely important as we are just two months away from the historic 2022 FIFA World Cup.”

This is also in line with the recently revised quarantine requirements as well as the removal of the list of Countries Subject to Covid-19 Red Health Measures. Thankfully, all these are possible thanks to the effort of the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) with its efficient Covid-19 response when it comes to various health hazards. Of course, travellers who test positive for Covid-19 will still have to undergo isolation and quarantine.

According to Outing Qatar founder and managing director Mosaad Moustafa Eleiwa, “We are experiencing a significant increase in our bookings compared to the previous months. Further, our helicopter tours are almost fully booked until the end of September. Globally, all the current indicators show that we are moving from what is called the new normal to our normal life since the end of 2019. Leisure and business travel are almost back.”

In the meantime, fans of the FIFA World Cup will now be able to express their football fandom along with eager memorabilia collectors as Official Licensed FIFA World Cup 2022 products are now available on the Qatar Post e-store. These include playing cards, trophy replicas, water bottles, notebooks and more. According to its social media post, “Order your Official Licensed FIFA World Cup 2022 products and have them delivered to your doorstep.”
