If you're in Qatar and thinking to celebrate social functions at home, think again. The Ministry of Interiror (MoI) has banned all forms of gathering in Qatar in the framework of the country's precautionary measures to prevent coronavirus (Covid-19) spread.



In its statement on Twitter, MoI has announced:

We remind you all to follow strictly the decision to prevent all forms of gathering by the rule of law to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Precautionary measures are implemented to ensure the safety of all. 

In accordance with the decision by H.E. the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), forms of gathering banned by the power of law are as follows:

  • Social functions at home.
  • Majlis
  • Mourning
  • Corniche
  • Courtyards of Mosques
  • Social gathering
  • Beaches
  • Public parks
  • Vehicles (not included in the decision if the travel is for necessary purpose).



So, it is better to delay your party plans for the time being as once you're caught violating, hefty fines and legal charges await you. But, if you're an abiding resident and you know some who aren't, you may report the violators via MoI hotline: 4457 9999.
