  • The PCR test is required for everyone above 8 years old.

What about children?

Children below 12 years old can also travel directly to Saudi Arabia without being vaccinated if they are accompanied by a vaccinated iqama holder.

However, they are required to complete a 5 days home quarantine in Saudi Arabia. A corona test will be conducted on the 5th day of arrival for children above 8 years old.

Vaccinated outside Saudi Arabia?

It is important to note that those Iqama holders who have taken COVID19 vaccines from outside Saudi Arabia are not allowed to directly enter the Kingdom if they are coming from 10 banned countries even if their Tawakkalna status is immune.
