Residents who have obtained an Exception Entry Permit to enter Qatar but couldn't travel before its expiry can now apply to extend the permit for an additional 30 days.
However, certain conditions have to be met before applying for the extension, Qatar's e-Government Portal, Hukoomi said on Monday.
They are:
*That the extension request is submitted at least one day after the expiry of the previous permit
*The holder of the permit must not be inside the state.

The temporary service allows employers, whether individuals or companies, government or private sectors, to apply for entry permits for residents and their family members holding QIDs under which they can return to Qatar.

Starting August 1, applications for the permit can be submitted through the Qatar Portal.
