Indian Embassy issues advisory for its citizens

In the wake of ongoing diplomatic crisis in Qatar, the Indian Embassy in Qatar on Wednesday issued an advisory to Indians living there.

No security threat in region

The Embassy assured that it is monitoring the situation closely and is in touch with the Qatari authorities to ensure the safety and security of Indian nationals in Qatar.

  • The Qatari authorities have conveyed that they will take all necessary steps to ensure that normal life, including supplies of food items, is not affected,
  • There is nothing happening in the region that suggests any threat to the physical safety and security of residents in Qatar, the statement added.

Do not pay heed to rumours

The Embassy has called upon citizens to keep update of the latest news and do not believe in rumours without cross-checking facts.

The Embassy also suggested the citizens to contact their travel providers for advice on modifications to their travel arrangements and also remain alert to further developments.

ADVISORY FOR INDIAN NATIONALS IN QATAR

On 5th June 2017, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt announced that they were cutting diplomatic relations with the State of Qatar, along with closure of air/sea/land travel links with the State of Qatar.

These countries also have ordered their citizens to leave Qatar, in addition to ordering Qatari citizens to leave their territories. Subsequently Maldives, Yemen, Mauritius, Mauritania and Jordan took similar steps.

Air connectivity provided by several airlines between these countries has been disrupted, as a result of cancellation of a number of flights.

The airlines concerned have reportedly offered refunds for tickets booked on these cancelled flights. Indian travelers are, therefore, requested to contact their travel providers for advice on modifications to their travel arrangements and also remain alert to further developments.

The Embassy of India is monitoring the situation closely and is in touch with the Qatari authorities to ensure the safety and security of Indian nationals in Qatar.

The Qatari authorities have conveyed that they will take all necessary steps to ensure that normal life, including supplies of food items, is not affected. There is nothing happening in the region that suggests any threat to the physical safety and security of residents in Qatar.

Please update yourself of the latest news and do not believe in rumours without cross-checking facts. The Embassy will be providing updates on its Twitter handle from time to time as required.
