Saudi Arabia has announced it will lift travel bans to curb the spread of the corona virus from January 1, but the ban on international flights for people with certain conditions has been partially lifted since Tuesday, September 15.
The Saudi Interior Ministry has said that “from January 1, 2021, airports, ports and border checkpoints will be opened.”
“Exit re-entry, employment, residence, visit visa holders, foreigners will be allowed to come to Saudi Arabia.”
Safeguards will be put in place to prevent the spread of the corona virus.
The Interior Ministry said in a statement that travel restrictions would remain in place until the end of 2020 due to the corona virus and the second wave of the Code 19 epidemic in many countries and the lack of corona vaccine.
The statement said that 30 days before January 1, 2021, the final date for lifting travel restrictions and allowing travel will be announced. If necessary, the Ministry of Health will then set safety measures for travelers.
