No Quarantine Require For Completely Vaccinated Travelers Arriving In KSA, Weqaya

RIYADH — All travelers — who have completed 14 days after completing their doses of vaccines approved in Saudi Arabia not require quarantine themselves upon arrival to the Kingdom, Saudi National Center for Disease Control clarified and Prevention (Weqaya) on Sunday.

However, all those above the age of 8 need to submit a PCR COVID-19 negative  test report for a sample taken not more than 72 hours before their scheduled departure for the Kingdom, starting from May 20.

The clarification from Weqaya comes as Saudi Arabia prepares to start international travel from Monday (May 17). However, the move excludes the 20 countries where the ban on flights continues as part of preventive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Weqaya also said institutional quarantine measures will be required to non-Saudis who have not completed their vaccine doses approved in the Kingdom, according to what was announced by the Saudi Ministry of Interior.

The authorities will allow only those citizens to travel who have received one or two doses of the COVID-19  vaccine and those who have recovered from the virus and those under the age of 18 years.

Additionally, it is required to present an insurance policy approved by the Saudi Central Bank, covering the risks of contracting the coronavirus infection outside the Kingdom for travelers less than 18 years old.
