All visitors over the age of six must produce negative Covid-19 tests before flying to Qatar for the tournament, which starts on November 20, authorities said in new health guidelines.

The 29-day tournament will be the first major global sporting event with fans since the outbreak of the Covid pandemic in December 2019.

The Qatari organizers and world soccer’s governing body FIFA have said they want the event to be a sign that the world is getting over the devastating pandemic.

But they have warned that health guidelines will change if the threat flares up again.

Fans will be required to wear masks on public transport in Qatar and anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 “will be required to isolate in accordance with Ministry of Public Health guidelines”, the health ministry said.

The ministry added that it may force players, referees and officials to remain in a safe “biobubble” if coronavirus cases take off “to enable the safe operation and continuation of the event.”
