Vaccinated Outside Qatar: How To Get Ehteraz Gold Frame?

Doha Guides Team regularly reviews this article to ensure the content is up-to-date and accurate. The last editorial review and update were on 05 February 2024.

Ehteraz app is a contract-tracing app developed by Qatar’s Ministry of Interior as part of the measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The app works with Bluetooth and geo-location technologies so that if a user comes in contact with an infected person or a person in quarantine, he/she will immediately receive a notification.

Ehteraz app will also show a person’s immunity status through coloured QR codes. The app will also show the vaccination details, including dates and type of Covid-19 vaccine taken.

This article explains how people vaccinated outside Qatar can get their Ehteraz Gold Frame (vaccinated status) on their Ehteraz mobile app.


Since Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, Ehteraz app is not mandatory to enter public places. Hence you do not need gold frame on your Ehteraz app. The below content is based on earlier information.

Ehteraz Gold Frame for Vaccinated Users

The Heath Status on the Ehteraz mobile app for fully vaccinated persons in Qatar will remain green with a Gold Frame to indicate that they are excluded from quarantine if the result of the PCR test is negative and that they have completed 14 days from the date of the prescribed doses of the vaccine.

According to MoPH, the Golden Frame will appear around the QR code in the app seven days after the second vaccine dose.

The Health Status of citizens and residents who have received the vaccine outside Qatar will remain green without a golden frame until their vaccine data is updated in the system.

How To Update Vaccine Details If Vaccinated Outside Qatar

If you are a resident or visitor who has been vaccinated outside Qatar, you can send your vaccination details to MOPH to update the details on the Ehteraz app and activate the Golden Frame around the QR code. There are two ways to do this:

Option 1: Uploading vaccination details through the Ehteraz website

Ehteraz’s website has been updated with an option to submit the vaccination details directly to MOPH. Here is how you can do it:

Step 1: Go to the Ehteraz registration website

Step 2: Click on “Register new vaccination abroad”

You will receive a confirmation once the form has been submitted.

You can check the status of your request by going to “My Applications” at the top of the page.

Option 2: Sending vaccination details via email to MOPH

To get your details updated, you can also send an email to [email protected] with your official vaccination card or certificate.

In the email’s subject line, you can write “Request to update vaccination certificate for Ehteraz App“.

In the email body, write the following details:

  • Name
  • ID number / Passport number / Visa Number number (residents have to mention QID number)
  • Mobile Number (number used for Ehteraz registration)
  • First dose vaccination date
  • Second date vaccinationdate
  • Vaccination location outside Qatar (the country from where you took the vaccine)
  • Email address

Here is a sample of the email you can use:

Make sure to attach a clear scan of the vaccination certificate or vaccination card with the following details:

  • Name of the recipient
  • Date of vaccination by each dose
  • Type of the vaccine
  • Batch number of the vaccine
  • An official logo and/or the official stamp of the vaccination authority 

NOTE: If you have separate vaccination certificates for both doses, attach both certificates.

After you send the email, your vaccination details will be updated on the Ehteraz app, and you can get the Golden Frame in a few days.

As this is a manual process, sometimes this may need some follow-up after a few days. You can resend the email or call customer care on 16000 to check if you don’t see any update after several days. You can also contact the Government Contact Center.

Even if the details are updated in the system, this may not immediately show on your app. You may have to try restarting the mobile or clearing the app cache. You can find more solutions in the next article:
