Money exchange houses shut from today: GCO Mar 26, 2020 0 126 12345 Qatar has temporarily closed in-person money exchange and transfer service offices from Thursday (March 26), the Government Communications Office (GCO) has announced. In a statement on Wednesday, the GCO said this is part of wider measures introduced by the government to close non-essential shops and public spaces to tackle COVID-19. The most important thing that the people of Qatar can do to contain the spread of the virus is to reduce day-to-day contact with other people. “Throughout the period of closure, money can be transferred through online exchange services, mobile applications and Ooredoo Money. All services allow users to transfer money abroad instantly either online or through their phone,” the statement added. It said full guidance on how to access and use these alternative services will be made available in multiple languages across multiple sites and channels in Qatar.
