Saudi Arabia has announced that travel restrictions will be lifted for citizens at the beginning of 2021.


Starting January 1, all international travel restrictions which have been implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be lifted, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) announced on Sunday.

Travel via the borders to and from the Kingdom includes via air, land and sea.

Meanwhile, as of this week on September 15, the Kingdom will partially ease restrictions on international flights in order to permit citizens and residents to travel who are in “exceptional circumstances”.

Back in March, Saudi’s borders were closed due to the pandemic and have remained closed since.

To date, the Kingdom has had 325,651 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 302,870 of which have fully recovered. There has been a total of 4,268 deaths.
