QID Holder

Earlier Qatar has suspended inbound flights with the exemption of the Qataris return to their motherland as one of the precautionary steps to forbid the spread of coronavirus, due to this many expatriates and residents did not return to Qatar.

One of the common questions is that the people whose Qatar ID expired and currently they are outside the country due to COVID-19 restrictions, will they be allowed to return to Qatar with an expiry Qatar ID?

The Ministry of Administrative Development Labor and Social Affairs announced earlier that “The Expatriates who are not allowed to come to Qatar due to COVID-19 after the ban is lifted are permitted to enter into Qatar even if their QIDs have expired or stayed more than six months stay outside Qatar.”
