Ehteraz Pre-registration & Approval Guide For Expats Having Jobs In Qatar

Travelling to and from Qatar? Did you know that there is a new arriving passengers online registration platform where you need to register when entering the country?

The new Travel entry into Qatar portal – – ensures a quick and easy service upon your arrival, to avoid any delays.

As per the latest Travel and Return Policy by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), expats who currently have jobs in Qatar and visitors may register in this portal to expedite their entry to the country.

Although pre-registration is optional for citizens and residents of Qatar, MoPH recommends that all individuals entering Qatar pre-register to ensure the best experience upon arrival in Qatar.

• Non-residents of Qatar must register via the pre-registration platform on  website and upload all relevant documents such as:

- PCR  test  result

- vaccine certificate

- and other relevant documents (at least 3 days before arrival).

• All passengers must sign an Undertaking and Acknowledgement Form before arriving in Qatar. The form is available on the MoPH website, pre-registration platform website (​) and airline online booking form.

Note: Citizens and residents who are fully vaccinated inside the State of Qatar arriving from one of the Green List countries are exempt from this requirement.
