For visitors, the entry will be allowed only if the person is fully vaccinated 14 days prior to entering the country. GCC citizens who had recovered from Covid-19 in the last 12 months and received a single dose of vaccine will be exempted from quarantine, the ministry said.
All travellers need to present a negative PCR test result done within 72 hours before they enter the country. They should also receive an approval through Ehteraz app before boarding.
