Tawtheeq Qatar National Authentication System (Guide 2021)

With several government entities in Qatar moving towards online platforms and digital services, it is important to enhance the electronic authentication and verification tools.

Tawtheeq is the National Authentication System (NAS) launched by Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC). It provides methods for unified access to various government e-services smoothly, safely and quickly.

With Tawtheeq, users can access several e-government services using the same username and password thus saving time and effort and delivering the services faster.

Nowadays you need Tawtheeq to access a number of services like Registering for COVID-19 Vaccine, Applying Exceptional Entry Permit etc.

Tawtheeq offers numerous advantages to both digital service providers and users. These include:

  • User online-registration, user verification, and unified access.

  1. HI,
    My wife and kids are out of doha last two year and they have Qatar ID , and its expired already . So how I can get entry permit to get back them in same ID .
    Thanks and regards,
    Noushad Esmail

  2. Currently i am on Visitor visa in Qatar and i have already received both covid vaccine injection and already registered for NAS. But when i am trying to download my vaccine certificate then i am receiving (SPUB105: Invalid activation code).

    Kindly help to download the certificate.

  3. I would like to seek for assistance regarding the registration of my children who are minors and they are not yet registered under my husband’s Qatar ID. We have been calling NAS since October 5, 2021 and today is Nov 5, 2021, it’s been one month already. Every time he calls different staff answers the phone and they give different advices. Until we spoke to a certain Mr. Seri and advised us that we need to buy Ooredoo to register my daughter’s name under their own mobile nos. This morning somebody from NAS called my husband for 7 seconds (which is registered in his mobile) when he was about to answer the phone the other end hung up the call. When my husband returned the call and they are saying nobody answered. Still he returned the call and they are giving another reason. This evening he called again nothing happened. When I called twice this evening, they also gave different advices and said that they were calling my husband through Teams at 10 AM. For the whole month he’s been calling nobody informed that they were supposed to call him through Teams, yet they called him on Nov 4 through mobile. Mr. Yasin from NAS, told me that the Technical team will call my husband at 10 AM tomorrow through Teams, and my husband has installed the Teams in his mobile. I am desperately seeking for your assistance to help and give us the correct procedure to register the Ehteraz of my daughters under my husband’s Qatar ID. We are law abiding residents of Qatar and I truly hope that you could extend your support.
    Respectfully Yours

      Hi Kathryn, Sorry to hear that. Ehteraz Pre-travel Registration is not mandatory for QID holders. And Ehteraz mobile app is not required for minor children to enter shops, restaurants etc. So just wondering why are trying to do registration for your children?
