What are the benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine certificate?
Currently, quarantine is NO longer mandatory for all travellers, citizens and residents alike, arriving from abroad. However, travellers who test positive for COVID-19 after arriving in Qatar must undergo self-isolation measures in accordance with the procedures followed in the State of Qatar.
Nonetheless, fully vaccinated individuals in Qatar will have a golden frame around their Health Status on Ehteraz. Moreover, the Health Status of citizens, residents, and visitors who have received the vaccine outside Qatar will remain green without a golden frame until their vaccine data is updated in the system or through the Overseas Vaccine Portal.
Booster vaccine certification
The Qatar government will reduce the validity of your vaccine certificate to nine months after your last second dose of the Qatar-approved vaccine. After nine months, you will need to obtain a booster dose to maintain your “fully vaccinated” status.
Those eligible for the booster vaccine may download their updated certification 24 hours after receiving the additional jab and maintain their Gold Vaccinated Status on Ehteraz. The golden status is mandatory for individuals looking to access using most public facilities and establishments.
