Saudi Arabia allows vaccinated tourists from countries not facing travel ban

Fully vaccinated tourists from countries not facing travel ban will be allowed to enter into the Kingdom, Saudi Arabia’s civil aviation authority said on Friday.

In a circular, the General Authority of Civil Aviation has asked all airlines operating in the Kingdom, including private carriers, to allow entry to travelers holding tourist visas from countries from which they are allowed to come to Saudi Arabia in line with the announcement of the competent authorities and on recommendations of the health committees.

Currently, the countries facing the travel ban are India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Egypt, Turkey, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Lebanon.

The ban has been prompted by the continued surge in cases of coronavirus and its variants in these countries.
