A number of precautionary measures will be implemented on all arrivals from the Abu Samra border crossing following the opening of the air, land and sea borders between Qatar and the sisterly Saudi Arabia, the Government Communications Office (GCO) has announced in a statement.
From Saturday, the following procedures are in place based on Qatar’s current Covid-19 travel and return policies:
* All arrivals to Qatar from the Abu Samra border crossing are required to undergo a Covid-19 test and obtain a virus-free certificate no more than 72 hours before travel.
* All arrivals will be subject to hotel quarantine for one week. The hotel accommodation is to be booked through the Discover Qatar website prior to arrival. All travellers from Qatar wishing to travel through the Abu Samra border crossing must make a reservation for hotel quarantine for the date of return before leaving the country.
* All arrivals must sign a formal pledge to adhere to hotel quarantine and follow the policies and conditions of the quarantine, in addition to downloading the Ehteraz application, which traces Covid-19 infections.
These measures are subject to change based on Covid-19 public health indicators in Qatar and around the world, the GCO statement notes.
