Saudi Arabia lifts entry suspension to residents who received two doses of vaccine.

The Saudi ambassador to Lebanon, Walid Al-Bukhari, announced Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ decision, to lift the suspension of direct entry to the Kingdom, from the countries whose residents were not allowed to enter the Kingdom, and permit the entrance of those who had taken the two vaccines’ batches. Still the arrivals will be subjected to all the precautionary measures adopted in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The memorandum of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not indicate what these procedures are so far, but it is expected that they will be quarantined at home for 7 consecutive days, and not leave the house except to go to the approved examination headquarters to verify the negative test of Corona for the Lebanese expatriate, and accordingly the citizen has the right to go to work and enter all places with the required permit.

Any Lebanese expatriate who violates the instructions of the precautionary measures regarding the quarantine duration, could be subjected to paying a fine up to ten thousand Saudi riyals, and deportation, so the citizen must follow all procedures and instructions.
