Saudi Arabia announces the re-entry of tourists from countries around the world, starting from the first of August

Yesterday evening, the Saudi Ministry of Tourism announced that the Kingdom will open its doors to tourists, and lift the suspension of entry for tourist visa holders, starting from August 1, 2021.

The ministry said in a statement, "Tourists who are fully immunized can enter the Kingdom without the need for an institutional quarantine period, provided that an official certificate of vaccination is presented upon arrival, and proof of a PCR test and the appearance of its negative result within 72 hours from the time of departure."

Visitors to the Kingdom are also required to "register their data related to vaccination doses on the new electronic portal dedicated to this".

Their data is also recorded through the “Tawakkalna” application, and shown to enter public places, bearing in mind that those who are fully vaccinated are those who received two vaccination doses of one of the approved vaccines in the Kingdom, which is Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson.

Those wishing to obtain a tourist visa can apply through the website "Spirit of Saudi Arabia"
