Health insurance requirement for travel to Doha, Qatar

All visitors to Qatar must obtain health insurance prior to arrival in the country.

The Ministry of Public Health in Qatar has published updated entry requirements for the country from February 2023 specifying that health insurance must be obtained covering the intended stay in the country.

The Ministry provides an exclusive list of insurance providers from whom health insurance may be purchased. The list is available from the Ministry website, here.

The standard insurance premium is 50 Qatari Rial per month, which is approximately £11.50.

Please note that the entry requirement may be enforced strictly, resulting in passengers arriving at Doha without proof of health insurance purchased from one of the listed providers being denied entry.

Full details of the Ministry’s scheme have been published on the MOPH website, here.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to contact your Global Travel Management Account Manager.
