In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency late Thursday, the 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 Aug. 1 (Sunday).

Fully vaccinated tourists can enter Saudi Arabia without needing to enter an institutional quarantine provided if they present vaccination certificates upon arrival and proof of negative PCR tests conducted within 72 hours from the time of departure.

Where to register the data

Visitors to the Kingdom are also required to register their data related to vaccination doses on the new electronic portal https://muqeem.sa/#/vaccine-registration/home.

“Tawakkalna” (coronavirus) application also records the data which is needed to be shown to enter public places including shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Temporary visitors are allowed to register with their passport details.

Tourist Visa

In the statement, the ministry said that those wishing to obtain a tourist visa can apply through the visitsaudi.com website.

Which vaccines?

According to the statement, fully vaccinated are those who have received two doses of a vaccine that is approved in Saudi Arabia, which is Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson.

Those who have taken two doses of the Sinopharm or Sinovac vaccines will also be allowed if they have received an additional dose of one of the four above-mentioned vaccines.
