Top Shisha Spots in Qatar

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) in Qatar has announced that starting today, January 29, shisha services may be offered in open spaces of restaurants and cafes in tourist areas.

MoCI issued a decision to prohibit shisha or hookah in all restaurants and cafes operating in the country, last January 8. This decision comes in light of the current health conditions and ihas been made to protect the community in Qatar from COVID-19 and the Omicron variant.

Now, they are made available only in outdoor areas of the said establishments.
