Passengers travelling from specific airports in some countries will be required to present a Covid-19 RT-PCR negative test result when checking in, with effect from August 13 (Thursday).

These countries are Bangladesh, Brazil, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka. They will also be required for passengers travelling with Qatar Airways from India, Nepal, Nigeria and Russia when we resume our services to these countries.

Test results must be issued within 72 hours before departure, from laboratories that are approved by Qatar Airways, and paid for at the passenger’s expense. (For a list of approved laboratories click here.)

Those who do not have a copy of their medical test certificate alongside a consent form (Click here to access the consent form) will not be permitted to travel on Qatar Airways flights.

Children below the age of 12 years are exempt from this test, if accompanied by family members who have presented a negative test result.

Since August 1, passengers travelling to Massachusetts, US, are required to fill out a travel form ahead of departure to confirm arrangements for a 14-day quarantine or that they can produce a negative Covid-19 test result that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to arrival.

Passengers travelling to Spain, Greece and the UK must fill out a form up to 48 hours ahead of departure, while those travelling to the Maldives must fill out a form up to 24 hours ahead of departure.
