Qatar Vaccination Certificate Format
The Ministry of Public Health has recently updated the format of its COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate to include the booster dose of the vaccine and to enhance alignment with international travel requirements.
The updated certificate format now includes details of COVID-19 vaccine booster doses for those individuals who have received it and contains additional information in alignment with the Qatar Airways IATA Travel Pass Digital Passport’ Mobile App, as well as the European Union Digital COVID-19 Certificates.
For those who have previously obtained and printed their MOPH COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate, the Ministry has stated that the previous certificate format remains valid and can continue to be used as proof of vaccination in Qatar and abroad; and it is not required to re-print or re-download the new certificate format.
Below is the sample image of the latest design of the Covid Vaccine Certificate in Qatar.
The Covid Vaccine Certificate issued by Qatar MOPH features a secure QR code. It includes all the information you need to prove to airlines and authorities that you have had your COVID-19 vaccinations.
Please note that some authorities may accept the electronic version with QR code on your mobile phone, but some may need to see the printed certificate. So if you are travelling abroad, carrying a printout with you is safer.
Updates to Qatar Vaccination Certificate
Your covid vaccination certificate will be updated when you receive each dose of vaccine. This includes any booster dose which you may receive in the future.
The new certificate will be available seven days following the last dose administration date for individuals completing their full course of the primary vaccine series.
For individuals receiving their third dose/booster dose, the new certificate will be available within 24 hours after the third dose has been given.
Covid Vaccination Certificate From MyHealth Portal
It is also possible to download your Covid Vaccination Certificate from your “MyHealth” portal. It is available under “Health Records” –> “Documents”. However, we do not recommend using that as the vaccine certificate format used is not updated. It is better to download it from the MOPH website, as shown above.
Benefits of Covid Vaccine Certificate
A Covid Vaccination Certificate soon becomes an essential travel document in the post-pandemic world. International travellers are now required to show vaccine certificates to avoid quarantine in the destination country.
Moreover, in many countries, you must show proof of vaccination before being allowed to enter indoor areas like restaurants, shops etc. Hence, it is highly recommended that you print and keep copies of your Covid Vaccine Certificate while travelling.
