The move opens up a key market for the UAE just weeks before the start of Expo 2020 in Dubai. It also gives UAE citizens and residents another option for quarantine-free travel.
“Saudi Arabia is the authentic home of Arabia, a destination reminiscent of the mystique and romance of ancient civilizations, rich in iconic sites and unexpected stories infused with the unparalleled hospitality for which Saudis are famous,” said Fahd Hamidaddin, executive director of Saudi Tourism.
If you’re considering a trip to Saudi Arabia, here’s everything you need to know about traveling there, from what vaccinations are accepted to what to do before you leave and of course what to see once you get there.
At the time, the United Arab Emirates was included on a list of countries from which travel was banned, but the kingdom is now open to travelers from the Emirates, South Africa and Argentina have also been removed from the banned list.
Likewise, many cities apply curfews or access restrictions to some monuments for security reasons. Some countries do not allow entry to places of restoration and leisure if the official vaccination certificate or negative PCR test is not presented by QR code. Please consult for more details.
We recommend that you take out health insurance for the entire duration of your stay. Please note that in some countries, it is mandatory for entry into the destination.
The list of countries or areas at risk, as well as the criteria for inclusion in it, is published on the website of the Ministry of Health and on the SpTH website. As a general rule, the lists will be reviewed every seven days.
VERY IMPORTANT: all diagnostic tests for travel abroad must be at least in English, and show: name and surname of the holder, date of sample collection, type of test performed, authorized health center performing the test, negative test result and issuing country.

The cascade of country restrictions began Thursday night when the United Kingdom announced it would temporarily suspend flights from South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini.
Singapore has opted to ban entry to all non-residents from Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe, while returning nationals and permanent residents from any of these countries will be required to spend 10 days at home. Malaysia has also taken similar measures.
Meanwhile, Germany plans to declare South Africa a “virus variant area” as of Friday night, which will mean that airlines will only be able to enter from the country to repatriate German nationals.
The United States will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries as of Monday. Following advice from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Biden administration will restrict travel from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

Complimenten aan @ggdkennemerland voor het adequate handelen. De reizigers met een positieve testuitslag gaan met hun reisgenoten naar een quarantainehotel, overige passagiers in thuisquarantaine.
