Saudi Arabia has on Sunday announced the reopening of borders and the resumption of international flights after a two-week suspension aimed at stemming the spread of a new COVID-19 strain.
Making the new announcement, Ministry of the Interior, according to the official Saudi Press Agency, said;
The government ordered the lifting of precautionary measures related to the spread of a new variant of coronavirus.
Saudi Arabia has recorded more than 363,000 cases, including over 6,200 deaths –- the highest among the Gulf Arab states – but has also reported a high recovery rate.
It would be recalled that Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia, suspended international flights and access through land crossings and ports on December 21.
Other Gulf countries, Oman and Kuwait, who had taken similar measures, have also lifted them in recent days.
However, travelers returning from Britain, South Africa or “any country where the new variant of the coronavirus is spreading” are subject to more restrictions, the statement added.
Foreigners coming from those countries must spend 14 days in another country before entering Saudi Arabia, and show a negative test.
Saudi nationals returning from those countries will be able to enter directly — but must then spend two weeks in quarantine on arrival, and be subject to tests.
