Qatar: Log Book for Bar Patrons

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Qatar, Law

Paraglider [1], at the UAE Community Blog, reports: “The Qatar Tourism and Exhibition Authority and Ministry of the Interior (!) requires that access to any bar shall be on production of a valid ID or Passport. Originals only, no copies. But it is not enough just to flash the card. The details, name, ID number, date and time, are to be manually entered into a log-book…Because there was no explanation accompanying the ruling, rumours are rife.”
