Saudi Arabia lifts ban on 11 countries including UAE & Germany

Saudi Arabia had banned travellers arriving from 11 countries- the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the United States, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Japan, and Switzerland, to curb the spread of coronavirus. The ban has been lifted and allowed entry from 30th May 2021. The decision was taken based on the announcements of competent authorities of these countries that they have been efficient in controlling the spread of the virus and the epidemiological situation in those countries has reached certain stability. Saudi Arabia’s civil aviation ministry, the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) however, mentioned the need to follow institutional quarantine measures for those arriving from those countries. All concerned authorities and air transport companies are required to meet the precautionary and preventive health safety measures as outlined by the GACA.
