Saudi Arabia reopens all sea, land, air borders

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia on Sunday reopened all sea, land, and air borders, which were closed on Dec 20 last year due to a new variant of the coronavirus, reported Anadolu Agency quoting the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

 SPA said the country’s borders, which were temporarily closed as part of measures against the mutated COVID-19 virus, were reopened as of Sunday.

Those who want to come to the Kingdom from the UK and South African Republic and don’t possess Saudi citizenship will be required to spend at least 14 days in a country where the mutated virus is yet not seen, the news agency said.

Saudi citizens, who were allowed to enter the country for humanitarian or other obligatory reasons, will be subjected to a 14-day quarantine at their homes and asked to have a PCR test on the sixth day of their arrival.
