Stringent Covid-19 travel restrictions have been in place since March 2020.  U.S. citizens visiting Qatar are advised to check the U.S. Embassy website for the latest information on travel to Qatar.  As of June 2021, Qatar has reopened its borders to tourist and business travel, with numerous conditions.

Travel Requirements
