KSA allows travellers from 11 countries, while Pakistan is not on the list!

Saudi Arabia is lifting a ban on travelers arriving from 11 countries that it imposed to curb the spread of coronavirus, the Saudi state news agency announced on Saturday.

However, travelers are still required to quarantine themselves.

Travelers from the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the United States, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, France, and Japan, will be allowed entry from Sunday, SPA reported, quoting an Interior Ministry source.

The decision has been based on the “Public Health Authority’s report regarding the epidemiological situation in a number of declared countries, which showed stability and effectiveness in controlling the pandemic in some of these countries.”
