Travelling to Qatar

Travelling with Medicines

Passengers handling medication, such as painkiller, antibiotics or medicines containing sedatives, whilst travelling to Qatar must provide the original prescription from the prescribing doctor or GP before departure.

It is advisable that prescriptions are attested
 by the Embassy. This is a standard requirement and will help with entry into the country.

Medicines should be carried along with their original packing so that customs authorities can easily identify them.

You should not carry more than a 30-day supply of medicines.
