Does it include the flights to India and Pakistan?
Saudi Arabia imposed a ban on flights coming from 20 countries including India, Pakistan, Egypt, Brazil, and Argentina on Feb 02, 2021.
According to the GACA Circular, the travel permit does not apply to countries to which the concerned committee decides to suspend travel which means that the flights from those 20 countries will continue to remain suspended even after May 17, 2021.
