Qatar shifts some countries from green list to red in latest travel policy update

Qatar has updated its green, red and exceptional red lists it uses to categorise countries based on its COVID-19 risk assessment.
While several countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the US, have been moved from the green list to the red, the exceptional red list has been whittled down to nine.
The expanded red list now features 47 countries instead of the previous 23, while the truncated red list has 159 countries instead of 175.
The new lists will come into effect on January 1, 2022.
