More supermarkets including Family Food Centre, Saudia Hyper, Rawabi and Grand Mall also confirmed that they are implementing the green status rule for entrance.
Residents welcomed this move as many hoped that it will make shopping a stress free experience since people will be more careful about disobeying quarantine rules.
Ehteraz has been made compulsory for all residents in Qatar as part of the precautionary measures to combat the spread of COVID-19. However as of the latest update, people on business and visit visa are not able to activate the Ehteraz app as it needs a QID for the same. An update of the app with these options is not available yet. Some leading hyper markets said they are allowing entry if a copy of the visa is produced at the entrance while others are strictly following the Ehteraz app.
