Non-citizens and residents would be allowed in after registering online proof, in advance of their journey, of having gone 14 days since receiving full vaccination with a Kingdom-approved vaccine.
Meanwhile, the Saudi General Directorate of Passports on Thursday announced that travelers from outside of the Kingdom needed to complete an online vaccination register prior to their arrival in the country.
The electronic process would help to speed up passenger entry procedures but is limited to citizens of Gulf Cooperation Council countries and holders of new visas.
The passports directorate added that it had completed travel procedures for citizens through 19 land and air entry points after the suspension of travel abroad was lifted.
