Qatar launches e-portal at Hamad International Airport

Travelers arriving from Hamad International Airport now have a more convenient way to facilitate their entry into the country. With the launch of the pre-registration facilities, entry into Qatar is now made smoother and hassle-free.

This pre-registration service is optional for citizens and residents, who can use the e-gate service at HIA arrivals. Registration, however, is mandatory for visitors. It also does not cover any of the legal requirements for entry into the State.

“Applicants including citizens and residents vaccinated within Qatar will immediately receive a message stating the approval without attaching any documents,” says Major Abdullah al-Jasmi, head of the Administrative Affairs Section at the Airport Passports Department and a member of the Quarantine Unit.

“Regarding the hotel quarantine, some travellers book a tourist hotel that was not on the list of approved quarantine hotels. In order to avoid this, the platform was linked to Discover Qatar. When the traveller makes a reservation for the quarantine hotel and attaches the reservation photos, the registration portal, through a specific technology, ensure the hotel reservation is with an approved quarantine hotel, to ensure time and money are not wasted. All these procedures and the process of responding to the visitor’s application does not take more than 12 – 24 hours maximum.”

These e-methods are made in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), as well as with HIA administration and Airport Security Department. The portal also serves those who arrival at the Abu Samra Land Border of Qatar. Simply register on the Ehteraz platform and enter the required data to apply.

Registering allows a person’s status to appear at the MoPH, showing vaccinations or any cases of COVID-19. Visitors are required to provide their visa number, passport number, type of vaccine, and the date of dose. They must also indicate the last infection, if any, of the virus.
