Saudi Arabia has lifted the temporary ban and is resuming international flights, opening land, and seaports on Sunday.
The Kingdom has suspended international flights and closed overland and seaports from December 20 as a new variant of coronavirus was spreading.
An official source said that the kingdom stipulated that any foreign passenger, who wished to enter Saudi Arabia from the United Kingdom, South Africa, and any other country determined by the Ministry of Health (in which the new mutated type of COVID-19 has spread) must spend at least 14 days outside the country impacted with the mutated virus before entering the Kingdom.
The passengers will have to go a PCR test after the expiration of this period to prove they do not carry coronavirus.
Passengers from the nations which have recorded cases of the new strain will be quarantined in their homes under observation for 7 days, and undergo a PCR test, before the end of the quarantine period, on the sixth day of arrival.
Whereas, precautions will remain in place with regard to other countries, including home quarantine for seven days, or the home quarantine for three days, and a PCR test.
