Saudi Arabia partially lifted the suspension of international flights from September 15, six months after travel restrictions were imposed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will end all restrictions on air, land and sea transport after January 1 next year, the Interior Ministry said, on a specific date to be announced in December.

The airline normally flies to more than 85 destinations worldwide.

Meanwhile, the General Directorate of Passports (GDP) called on Saudis and expats traveling from the kingdom to comply with their destinations’ health requirements and to commit to the directives and regulations.

Some destinations require a number of procedures and specifications in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 in a way that ensures that the passengers’ flights are not cancelled and are not returned to their country upon arrival.

The directorate said that those requirements and procedures are constantly updated and without prior notice.
