Saudi Arabia has allowed entry to the country with at least a single dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The new travel guidelines came from Saudi Arabia amid concerns around the world about the new variant of coronavirus, Omicron, reports Reuters.
Reuters reports that the Saudi Interior Ministry issued the new travel guidelines on Saturday, the day after the Saudi government suspended flights from seven African countries amid fears of the new variant of Covid-19 ‘Omicron’.
The latest directive states that a single dose of the vaccine is enough to enter Saudi Arabia from any country in the world from next Saturday. However, in this case, after entering Saudi Arabia, the travelers have to stay in quarantine for three days.
Saudi Arabia banned flights from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho and Eswatini amid concerns on Friday over the new variant of coronavirus, Omicron.
