According to an Arab News report, all travellers, including Saudi nationals, arriving in the Kingdom after this date will have to undergo mandatory institutional quarantine,

The restrictions will not apply to travellers who have visited and left the countries, or any other country on which Saudi Arabia has imposed a travel ban, at least 14 days before arriving in the Kingdom.
