Qatari Ministry of Public Health has announced compulsory hotel quarantine on all arrivals from India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Philippines, whether they are travelling through direct flight or via other countries (transit), and even if they have been vaccinated, local media reported.
The Qatari Ministry of Public Health clarified in a press statement: The measure was taken due to the emergence of new strain of coronavirus in India.
