Quarantine bookings of all Qatar returnees, regardless of country of origin, to be cancelled: Qatar Airways
Existing quarantine bookings of all people returning to Qatar, regardless of the country of origin, from April 29 will be cancelled, Qatar Airways announced on Wednesday afternoon.
Qatar has imposed new entry requirements for passengers arriving from six countries – Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka – with travellers from these countries needing to enter extended periods of mandatory quarantine of 10 days.
As a result of these new and immediate requirements, Discover Qatar must, with regret, cancel all customers’ existing hotel bookings, regardless of country of origin, for Welcome Home quarantine accommodation from 29 April and anyone holding a booking will need to rebook.

All customers will be refunded in full following the cancellation and an email confirming this along with details of how they can rebook packages depending on their country of origin. Unfortunately, due to the additional demand for quarantine accommodation, it may not be possible for customers to rebook the same accommodation previously selected, as many hotels will be allocated to travellers arriving from the specific six countries.
Discover Qatar greatly regrets the inconvenience this will cause to those customers who have already arranged for quarantine but it is necessary to comply with the new entry conditions to Qatar introduced by the government in response to the changing situation internationally. Due to the short timescales of the restrictions and the numbers of bookings affected, it is not possible to contact everyone individually to make alternative arrangements and customers can make their new arrangements online.
