(Tuesday), the General Authority of Civil Aviation announced the launch of the first international flights after allowing travel for excluded groups, confirming the operational readiness of Saudi international airports for this stage. The authority clarified in its statement that the controls include not allowing non-Saudis to enter the Kingdom’s territory except after submitting proof that they are free from infection with the “Corona” virus from a reliable and approved authority outside the Kingdom, and its date does not exceed 48 hours.
He stressed the commitment to health preventive measures that impose home quarantine on those coming from outside the Kingdom for a period of three days, provided that there is a negative (pcr) examination certificate, and that there are no suspicious symptoms, indicating that it will update the traveler’s guide that includes the approved health protocols for travel. The authority indicated that the date set for the full lifting of the suspension for international flights will be announced 30 days before the date of January 1, 2021, and the Ministry of Health, if required at that time, may raise a request to set preventive health requirements for travelers and carriers during travel.
