The air bubble arrangement between Qatar and India has been extended until December 31, the Indian embassy said on Twitter on Wednesday. "We thank the civil aviation authorities of India and Qatar. Our efforts to facilitate movement between India and Qatar continue," the embassy tweeted.

Earlier, the India's Ministry of Civil Aviation had announced the creation of an air bubble with Qatar from August 18 to 31 for flights to and from either side, as agreed upon by Qatar's Civil Aviation Authority.

The arrangement was then extended until October 31, followed by the latest extension by another two months.

An air bubble is a bilateral arrangement between two countries under which airlines from both countries can operate international flights with a set of regulations and restrictions.

Under the agreement between India and Qatar, "The flights from Qatar to India will carry the following passengers: Indian nationals stranded in Qatar; all Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders holding Qatari passports, and Qatari nationals (including diplomats) holding valid visa issued by an Indian mission in any category covered under Ministry of Home Affairs guidelines dated 30.06.2020."

"The flights from India to Qatar will carry the following passengers: Qatari nationals; any Indian national holding any type of valid Qatar visa and destined for Qatar only,” it adds.
