Bahrain permitted the entry of Saudi citizens to its territory without routine border procedures on the occasion of school holidays.
The King Fahd Causeway between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain witnessed great congestion with the beginning of school holidays in Saudi Arabia.
The bridge took more than 300,000 travelers, which led to a rush and a delay in the border procedures that lasted for hours, prompting Bahrain to announce permission for Saudi travelers to enter its territory via the bridge without any procedures.
“On the occasion of the school holiday, the Kingdom of Bahrain will allow the entry of Saudi citizens without border procedures as an exception, in order to ease the traffic and reduce the waiting time,” the King Fahd Public Authority Foundation said on Twitter.
The King Fahd Causeway saw heavy traffic toward Bahrain for the third day in a row.
The Foundation stressed that efforts are continuing by all departments to reduce waiting hours, stressing that they make every effort to provide support to the departments involved and coordinate with them continuously.
The King Fahd Causeway Authorities called on all travelers to use the KFCA bridge application to ensure smooth flow of traffic.
