The French Embassy in Qatar announced the reopening of France to visitors from Qatar, in light of the current improvements in the COVID-19 situation in both countries. The reopening starts this Wednesday, 9 June.

The announcement was made via the official Twitter account of the French Embassy in Qatar, @FranceauQatar.

Starting on 9 June, Qatari or third-country travellers from Qatar may re-enter France without quarantine upon arrival if they are fully vaccinated and already have a valid visa.

Upon departure from Qatar, travellers will have to present evidence of their complete vaccination. They should have completed their second dose of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca vaccines at least two weeks before departure, four weeks after the injection of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and two weeks after a single injection for those with a history of COVID-19.

In addition, travellers should also present a negative PCR test taken at least 72 hours before their flight or a negative antigen test taken less than 48 hours.

Previous special conditions remain for persons not yet fully vaccinated. The embassy is working to reopen the visa service in the coming weeks.
