Re: Pfizer - Booster or Fully Vaccinated Dilemma

Re: Any experience / recommendation of freight companies moving to Qatar from UK

Looking at your list, I'd say Doha or in fact the Middle East in general isn't really for you. Dealing with all these kind of things and rolling with it, is par for the course.
