It has finally happened – Saudi Arabia has lifted travel restrictions on 11 key countries including the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Despite travel restrictions being uplifted overall, these countries were still on the ban list due to  the spread of a variant strain of coronavirus

However, according to the Saudi Public Health Authority (PHA), these countries have shown stability in containing COVID-19.

Passengers from the UAE, Germany, the US, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, the UK, Sweden, Switzerland, France, and Japan may now enter the Kingdom with the implementation of quarantine regulations.

 

However, 13 countries remain on the Interior Ministry’s no-go flight red list.

They are Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Turkey, Armenia, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Belarus, and India.

Citizens wishing to travel to these countries need prior permission
