The Qatar Postal Services Company (Qatar Post) has issued a set of special-edition COVID-19 postage stamps in honor of all frontline workers, such as medical and health care staff, police and military personnel, and postal workers, who provided their essential services to the community members during the global pandemic (COVID-19) crisis. 

The COVID-19 stamps set consists of two stamps worth QR 7 and an envelope for the first day issue at QR 8, and the folder itself will be sold to the public for QR 70. There are currently 10,000 stamps and 1,000 envelopes printed and ready for purchase. This set is available at all branches across Qatar. 

Qatar Post adopts the strategy of documenting major events hosted by the country through issuances of postage stamps. Under a cooperation agreement with FIFA, Qatar Post has become the exclusive provider of all postage stamps for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which aims to shed light on the legacy and history of the State of Qatar in football.

Qatar Post invited customers and philatelic collectors in Qatar and around the world to enjoy this edition in appreciation of each and every frontline worker’s relentless efforts during one of the most exceptional periods in modern human history.
