I was going through the list of requirements for travelers to Doha on their website.
It said people from COVID countries like India, Pakistan etc were subjected to 10 days mandatory quarantine.
The text is unclear about whether it applies only to arrivals with Qatar as their final destination.
It seems to imply passengers transiting via Doha (who are Indians from India) don't have to be subject to quarantine.
I need some help in figuring this out. I have reached out to Qatar via Twitter and am still waiting to get clarification on the requirements.
This is what their travel restriction page says about Indians and those from red list countries:
Travelers from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam: Exemptions from quarantine policy for vaccinated individuals does not apply. The following measures are implemented for travelers coming from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Philippines and Vietnam whether they are traveling through direct flight or via other countries (transit), which include: All passengers whose original flight is from the said countries are subject to mandatory COVID-19 PCR Test done 48 hours before departure from the testing centers approved by their local health authority. Knowing that no one can board the flight to Qatar without a valid Negative PCR certificate.
All passengers transiting through Qatar must have the mandatory pre-travel PCR test as mentioned in point 1, and in case they require another PCR test for their onward destination, they can have it at Hamad International Airport on a standard fee of QAR 300/- per test.
