Message from the Ambassador


These are difficult and unprecedented times. The Australian Embassy Qatar is available for Australians who need assistance.

The Australian Government has capped international arrivals to protect the health of the Australian community. Seats on flights to Australia are very limited and you may not be able to travel at this time. See COVID and the border.

If you’ve been unable to return to Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions and are experiencing financial distress, you may be eligible to access financial support from the government.

All travellers arriving in Australia, including Australian citizens, are subject to mandatory quarantine for 14 days at a designated facility, such as a hotel, in their port of arrival.​ See Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for travellers.

You may be required to pay for the costs of your quarantine. To find out more about quarantine requirements, including whether you qualify for an exemption, contact the relevant state or territory government health department.

Qatar has strict border controls in place, which also apply to Australians with Qatar Residency Permits. For more information, call 109 from inside Qatar or +974 4406 9999 from outside Qatar.

Our advice to Australians in Qatar is available through the Australian Government’s travel advice on Qatar. Please subscribe to ensure you are notified when this travel advice is updated. We also provide updates via Twitter @AusAmbQatar.

Australians remaining in Qatar should follow the advice and direction of Qatari authorities. Stay up to date with local authorities' updates through official sources, such as the Government Communications Office (@GCOQatar) and the Ministry of Public Health (@MOPHQatar).

If you require consular assistance, please email us at [email protected] or call us on +974 4007 8500 from 0830 to 1600 Sunday to Thursday to discuss your situation. To make an appointment for passport or notarial services, please book online.
