Is it Compulsory to Book a Hotel via the Discover Qatar website in the case of the Hotel Quarantine rule?
Before this new rule, it was clear that if someone is asked to do compulsory Hotel quarantine from Ehteraz officials, then the person will have to book from Discover Qatar only.
Now after the announcement of the new rule, people are in a dilemma if their previous Hotel bookings will work which they have done from agency or online booking websites.
As of now as per the tweet from the Indian embassy in Doha (@IndEmbDoh), Yes even students will have to get quarantined in Doha for 10 days to travel further to their destinations.
Also, Indigo Airlines has updated it on their website, so there should be no further doubt about it.
We suggest you, send a mail to Discover Qatar, however as per the latest mail from them –
One can put a Passport number instead of QID while While Booking Hotel from Discover Qatar it is asking for QID of Qatar.
It has to be a family member with whom you can share your room while doing a Hotel Quarantine in Qatar even if you book it via discover Qatar .
We tweeted the same to @IndEmbDoh and tried to figure out the solution
But as always embassy was not bothered to provide the solution or maybe they are still figuring out the option for it.
There is no reply as of now
We tried Calling Discover Qatar’s contact number
We tried contacting discover Qatar’s official number given on the website but it was not reachable at all.
We have sent a mail on Discover Qatar’s official email id
The official email id is – [email protected]
I am an Indian, seeking an on arrival Visa to visit Doha on 3rd August. As per the rules on the official website I am eligible for getting an arrival Visa.
We came to know about the new update that even if the person is vaccinated he or she will have to get quarantined for 10 days.
Sir, I have already booked a Millennium Hotel for 7 nights and I can reschedule my flights and can book a hotel for 3 more nights.
My only concern here is, I have not booked a hotel through Discover Qatar – Please give us clarification on whether the hotel voucher from another vendor or agency shall work or not as they are not giving us a refund.?
Your quick response is expected”
There is no response yet
We called one of the Hotel in Qatar
As per the Hotel, if the person is on Hotel quarantine status then he will have to book the same Hotel from the Discover Qatar website.
