Qatar private schools will teach ‘in person’ again from start of September


by Laura Rainbow

After months of partial closure due to COVID-19 pandemic, schools in Qatar have been told they will reopen for classroom-based teaching on September 1, 2020.

At about 9pm on Thursday, July 16, Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education announced that schools in Qatar will ‘return to in-person education’ — as opposed to online learning — at the start of September.

However, currently, people without existing residency permits or citizenship may not enter Qatar, making the business of moving to the country a mystery for new recruits and their employers.
