Qatar Travel Advice

Qatar Travel Advice - Added 6th June 2017 - Updated 24th July 2017 - Current 4th December 2019

On 4 June 2017, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar.

There are reports of some border closures affecting road, air and sea routes between these countries and Qatar. This is likely to lead to a level of disruption, including for people travelling to and from Qatar.

Flights between Qatar and Saudi Arabia and between Qatar and Egypt were suspended on 5 June 2017 until further notice. 

Flights to and through Qatar from other destinations are currently unaffected. This includes flights with Qatar Airlines. 

Please check with your airline for the latest update on your flight schedule.

There are currently no government warnings advising against travel to Qatar.

Please follow the travel advice of your Government:
