Qatar: SMS Features and Restrictions


As with many destinations in the Middle East, Qatar is a challenging market to deliver messages to. Many filters are in place to block SMS and even legitimate A2P traffic is very often blocked. To prevent filtering, Nexmo have a direct route into Qatar Qtel (42701). This, combined with our adaptive routing technology, will prevent filtering and assure a high quality of SMS delivery.
