Is it possible for me to go from the United Arab Emirates to Qatar?

Yes, all UAE citizens who have been inoculated are allowed to travel to Qatar, but they must show confirmation of their immunizations. In addition, travellers to the UAE must meet the following requirements to be allowed to travel:


  • Have received three doses of any vaccination that has been approved;
  • Have received two doses and are free of COVID19 infection;
  • Have not been infected with COVID19 for more than three months from the date of the recovery certificate, regardless of the number of vaccination doses received;
  • Have had two doses of any recommended vaccination, with the second dose administered within the last six months.

Tickets for the World Cup and a Hayya card are required

According to the latest Qatar entrance criteria, international football fans without a World Cup ticket and the Hayya card will not be able to enter Qatar for the World Cup.

Fans will also need to obtain the Hayya card before attending World Cup matches. As a result, it's better to take care of this obligation after you've purchased your World Cup tickets.

There are certain restrictions on travelling to Qatar for visitors from the United Arab Emirates.


·  Vaccination is required

Travellers who have been vaccinated outside of Qatar must produce the original immunization certificate, as well as any other supporting documentation –in Arabic or English– as confirmation that they have received the vaccine, which must include at least the following information:

  1. The traveller's name must match the name on the passport.
  2. Vaccine dosages and administration dates (one dose for the Jansen vaccine and two doses for other vaccines)
  3. The vaccine's type/name
  4. The vaccination batch's serial number and QR code (if available)

To be deemed immune-inoculated, travellers must be vaccinated with one of the vaccines listed below upon arrival in Qatar:

  1. BioNTech/Pfizer (Comirnaty)
  2. AstraZeneca (Covishield / Oxford / Vaxzevria) 
  3. AstraZeneca (Covishield / Oxford / Vaxzevria) 
  4. Johnson & Johnson / Jansen (only one dose)

Conditionally approved vaccines in Qatar

  1. Sinopharm
  2. Sinovac
  3. Sputnik V
  4. Covaxin

For persons who have two doses of conditionally recommended vaccines and 14 days following the second dosage, a Serology Antibody test with a positive result is required before travelling to Qatar to be deemed fully vaccinated. After receiving a complete vaccination of a conditionally approved vaccine, travellers who received a dosage of Pfizer, Moderna, or Astra Zeneca are regarded as entirely immune.

Visas are required or not

Visitors from the United Arab Emirates do not require a visa to visit Qatar. However, there are some mandatory requirements there, which you can ask directly to some visa experts like Voyage Plan Travels. They have the knowledge of all your questions regarding visas.

Requirements for documentation

The Al Hosn app will be honored and accepted in Qatar in place of online pre-travel registration for UAE nationals and residents who match the immunity criteria. This is because it indicates Immune status, and they do not need to complete the Etherize website pre-registration.

Nevertheless, UAE visitors must use international SIM cards to download and activate the Etherize app on their phones.
