Direct entry ban for expats from 9 countries continues: Jawazat

Expatriates from 9 countries will not be allowed to enter the kingdom directly unless they spend two weeks in a third country, Jawazat has reiterated.

The nine countries facing a ban include India, Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, Indonesia, Lebanon, Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa. Expatriates must not pass through any of these banned countries in the past 14 days before their entry into the kingdom.

Earlier this year, Saudi authorities banned entry from 20 countries, including these 9 countries, except for Saudi nationals, diplomats, health workers, and their families. 

In May, authorities lifted the direct entry ban into the kingdom for 11 countries, out of a total of twenty that were previously banned.
