The Qatar Distribution Company (QDC) has been functioning on an appointment-only basis since May 31, 2020, due to COVID-19 regulations. Before this, those with a valid permit may schedule a shopping appointment through SMS, while the QDC Permit Office accepted renewals and new applications via email. However, all appointments and permit purchases will be made online beginning June 16. As a result, the ability to apply for a permit through email and schedule an appointment via SMS has been disabled.
Confirmed SMS bookings and permit confirmation emails received before this date will be honored, according to a post on QDC’s Facebook page. Retail Store appointments will begin on June 16th, while Permit Office appointments will begin on June 21st.
