What are the benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine certificate?

Quarantine exemptions

Qatar residents in possession of vaccine certificates would be exempted from quarantine requirements following trips abroad or coming into contact with a COVID-19 positive case. The Heath Status on the Ehteraz mobile app for fully vaccinated persons in Qatar will remain green with a golden frame to indicate that they are excluded from quarantine measures. 

To be considered fully vaccinated and obtain the gold frame, individuals must belong to the following categories: 

  • individuals who have had two doses of MOPH approved COVID-19 vaccines and no more than 9 months have passed following administration of the second dose
  • individuals who have received their booster dose. The additional dose will ensure the gold frame remains for a further 9 months

Access to public places

A vaccine certificate will grant you access to public places in Qatar. As per the latest regulations, all public establishments and venues must adhere to the following:

  • In mosques across Qatar, Ehteraz App must be downloaded by all staff and worshipers, and check that the status is green to allow entry.
  • Likewise in all religious complexes across the country, Ehteraz App will be downloaded by all staff, congregation, and visitors. Entry is allowed only for those with green status.
  • All wedding guests must also be vaccinated with green status. 
  • All social gatherings can be attended only if the status is green on Ehteraz. 

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.
