RIYADH — Saudi Arabia will allow the entry of travelers from 11 countries starting from May 30, following a suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Saturday, citing an official source at the Ministry of Interior.

The move is mandatory for all non-vaccinated travelers to abide by institutional quarantine procedures for a period of 7 days and obtain a valid health insurance document to cover the risks of coronavirus.
The institutional quarantine is enforced at a facility under the supervision of the health authorities as opposed to home quarantine. The non-vaccinated travelers also must undergo a PCR test for coronavirus on the first and seventh day of their arrival.
While the Kingdom officially lifted its suspension on citizens traveling abroad on May 17, it has warned citizens from traveling to 13 countries without permission due to security circumstances and the instability in a number of countries, and also the continuation of the coronavirus pandemic.
The countries that Saudi citizens have been advised against visiting are the following: Afghanistan, Armenia, Belarus, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Turkey, Venezuela and Yemen.
