Residents can print ‘exceptional return permit’

This facility is in force since 29th November but this service is not available for residents who are already outside the country, or those who left the country before the mentioned date.

As part of the travel and return procedures, residents exiting the country can print ‘exceptional return permit’ instantly from the Ministry of Interior website as soon as their exit movement is registered.

This facility has been in force since November 29, 2020. However, this service is not available for residents who are already outside the country, or those who left the country before the mentioned date, as they are still required to apply for an exceptional return permit through the Qatar Portal, the Ministry of Interior said on its official Twitter account

Last month, the Government Communications Office (GCO) had announced that in continuation of the procedures for gradually lifting the coronavirus restrictions imposed in Qatar and based on general epidemiological indicators locally and internationally, and within the implementation of the previously announced travel and return policy to the State of Qatar, certain changes have been made to the exceptional entry system and they are as follows:

 

Residents who are currently in Qatar and who wish to travel and return again, can obtain an exceptional entry permit from the Ministry of Interior's (MoI) website at any time.

GCO had announced that residents who are currently in the State of Qatar and wish to travel and return will automatically receive an exceptional entry permit upon departure. The resident or their employer will be able to printout the exceptional entry permit from the Ministry of Interior’s website at any point after the resident has departed Qatar. Requests will no longer need to be submitted through the “Qatar Portal” website. The permit will be available automatically upon registration of the resident’s departure from Qatar.

This new automatic exceptional entry permit service does not include residents who are currently outside Qatar and they are still required to obtain the exceptional return permit via the “Qatar Portal” website if they wish to return to Qatar.
