Doha: Ehteraz, the Covid-19 tracking app, has got a new update on android play store. The app now allows people without QID to register using their Visa number.
The new update has two options on the home screen - “QID Registration” and “Visa Registration”. If you choose Visa option, it will ask for your mobile number, Visa number and Nationality to get the verification pin.
Now many commercial and public establishments in Qatar have made green status on Ehteraz app compulsory for entry into their premises. Most supermarkets and banks check for green status before they allow customers inside.
Before rolling out this update, it was not possible for business visa and visit visa holders to register on the app. Now the latest version allows even people on Business visas to register on the app.
Ehteraz has four different colour codes indicating your health status. Green means healthy, yellow is quarantined, grey is suspected and red means confirmed.
The government has made installing the app on your smartphone compulsory while leaving your house.
