Flyers from India will have to carry a COVID-19 negative RT-PCR test report in English. The test must be taken not less than 48 hours before the scheduled flight. 

The negative RT-PCR report carried by all the passengers must be conducted by an ICMR certified lab.

 The printed or soft copy of the RT-PCR report must be in English, it must not be hand-written.

Airlines flying to Doha have posted about this on Twitter.

 

Passengers also have to undergo mandatory hotel quarantine of 10 days in a dedicated facility only. Home quarantine will not be allowed.

They will also have to undertake an RT-PCR test at the quarantine facility at their own expense within one day upon arrival in Doha.

Apart from India, passengers boarding the flights originating from or transiting through Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka will also have to follow the above guidelines.
