Doha: If you are still carrying the old edition of banknotes in your wallet or purse, you have just a few days left to exchange them. Banks in Qatar have reminded citizens and expatriates to exchange old banknotes as the deadline approaches near to replace the old Qatari currency. As per the banks, December 31 is the last day to exchange the old currency note.
“Kindly note that the last day to deposit your Fourth Edition (Older Version) Qatari Riyal Banknotes at our ATMs and Branches is December 31st, 2021,” Commercial Bank said on its official Twitter account, yesterday.
