Saudi Arabia to Resume Direct Flights for Expats on December 1st

Fully vaccinated travellers from Egypt, Pakistan, Brazil, Vietnam, Indonesia and India will be allowed direct entry so long as they spend five days in quarantine post-arrival.

After the kingdom closed its borders to a number of countries due to the global surge COVID-19 in cases linked to variants in Britain, South Africa and Brazil earlier this year, Saudi Arabia has announced that it will lift the entry ban on expats from six countries, including Egypt, starting December 1st.


Fully vaccinated travellers from Egypt, Pakistan, Brazil, Vietnam, Indonesia and India will be allowed direct entry so long as they spend five days in quarantine post-arrival, regardless of their vaccination status. This move will open the door to the one million and six hundred thousand Egyptian workers based in Saudi Arabia to recommence their work in the kingdom.
