Covid-19: Saudi Arabia to lift travel ban on March 31
Saudi Arabia will lift a ban on international flights.
Saudi Arabia will lift a ban on international flights from Wednesday March 31, the state news agency Spa said on Friday.
The country will allow its citizens to travel abroad and then return from March 31, and will open all air, land and sea ports from the same date, the agency added.
An official source at the ministry said that the decision was made following a drop in the number of Covid-19 cases in the Kingdom, despite some countries experiencing a “second wave” of the pandemic and the emergence of a new form of the disease that can spread at a faster rate, Arab News reported.
The source also said that the Kingdom is finalising arrangements for further vaccine shipments for the immunisation of people in vulnerable groups.
