The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy mandated that all visitors six years of age and older provide proof of a negative PCR test result obtained within 48 hours of their departure or a positive fast antigen test result obtained within 24 hours of their arrival.
Rapid antigen test results that come from legitimate medical facilities and are not self-administered will only be accepted. If visitors do not exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, no additional testing will be necessary in Qatar.
Additionally, everybody above the age of 18 must download the Ehteraz contact tracing phone app, which is managed by the government.
The statement said, “Any public closed interior areas must be entered with a green Ehteraz status (demonstrating the user does not have a verified case of COVID-19).”
Vaccination is not required for the extraordinary flood of 1.2 million visitors anticipated for the event from November 20 to December 18, but fans will need to wear masks while travelling by public transportation.
According to the announcement, anybody who tests positive for COVID-19 while in Qatar must isolate in accordance with the Ministry of Public Health’s regulations.
