Saudi Arabia Reopens Borders

Saudi Arabia has announced it will reopen its borders and resume international flights after a two-week suspension. Riyadh suspended international flights and access through land crossings and ports on December 21 2020.

Upon arrival in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), all non – Saudi citizens who are more than 8 years old must submit a negative RT-PCR test result from an accredited laboratory in their home-countries. The said tests must have been carried out within 72 hours before departure for Saudi Arabia.  They will need to carry out a 7-day home quarantine after their arrival in KSA.

Non-Saudi citizens who had been in any country identified as having the new covid variant strain must spend no less than 14 days in another country (such as the Philippines) BEFORE entering KSA.  (Saudi nationals and certain humanitarian and urgent cases are exempted from this requirement but will be required to undergo a 14-day home quarantine after arrival in KSA.)
