Saudi Arabia has made it mandatory for all male and female workers in restaurants, cafes, barbershops, and beauty salons.

According to the details, the decision will take effect on Shawwal 1 of this year.

In case of non-compliance with the vaccination instructions, the concerned authorities will have to submit a ‘PCR’ report of coronavirus being negative after every 7 days.

Moreover, the test costs should be paid by the relevant authorities or shop owner.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia’s health ministry had announced that pilgrims who want to perform Hajj this year must receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the details, Saudi Health Minister Tawfiq Al Rabiah has said that participation in the Hajj season will ensure that pilgrims must be vaccinated, as part of the main condition for the pilgrimage. 

“The COVID-19 vaccine is mandatory for those willing to come to the Hajj and will be one of the main conditions (for receiving a permit to come),” a circular signed by the health minister read.
