2- No social distancing is required in all places (closed and open).

3- No need to wear a face mask in open places. However, you are still required to wear a face mask in closed places. 

4- PCR is not required before entering Saudi Arabia.

5- People coming to Saudi Arabia on a visit visa need to have COVID-19 insurance to cover the cost of the treatment from infection. 

6- Passengers coming to Saudi Arabia do not need to do any institutional or home quarantine. However, Muqeem Vaccine Registration is still required.

  • It includes people coming from India and Pakistan.
  • People who are already in institutional quarantine have to complete the process.
  • If you have paid the fee for institutional quarantine, you can take a refund from the airline/agent.

7- The suspension on direct flights from specific countries has been lifted. Now people from anywhere in the world can directly enter Saudi Arabia without any quarantine requirement.
