UAE | COVID-19 | KSA: Preventive measures for travelers against COVID-19

INFORMATION RELATED TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK

The Saudi authorities have announced the partial resumption of international flights, specifying that the total reopening of international flights will take place on January 1, 2021, although they have specified that this date could be revised depending on the circumstances.

The authorities have confirmed that in this way, non-Saudi citizens who hold a valid visa (Exit / Re-Entry visa or a residence permit (Iqama) or visit) will be able to enter and leave Saudi Arabia.

Likewise, foreign citizens who decide to enter Saudi Arabia must present a PCR certificate with a negative result issued by an accredited laboratory dated no earlier than 72 hours prior to arrival in the Kingdom, as well as comply with all preventive measures regarding COVID -19 determined by the Saudi authorities (among them, the completion of a sanitary entry form, the temperature measurement upon arrival, as well as a quarantine, in accordance with the parameters specified by these sanitary authorities).

The use of a mask and social distance are mandatory in all public places.

Travel outside of large urban centers and main roads is discouraged. In particular, it is recommended that you completely refrain from traveling to the border regions with Iraq and Yemen, as well as limit travel to the Eastern Province as much as possible.

In the event that you finally decide to travel to the country and even for a short period of time, it is convenient to inform the Embassy of your country of the dates of your stay, as well as the location and contact information.
