No Quarantine required for fully vaccinated Indians on return to Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia lifted the quarantine rule for Indians who have received both doses of Covid-19 vaccines in the Gulf nation. The Indian embassy in Riyadh announced on Twitter that Indian citizens fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in the country can enter the Middle Eastern country directly without quarantining in a third country.
Last month, the Saudi authorities said it will impose a three-year travel ban on citizens travelling to countries on the kingdom’s ‘red list’, including India, in efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus and its new variants, state news agency SPA had reported.
Earlier today, UAE authorities had announced that it has temporarily suspended issuing visas on arrival for Indian passengers who are arriving from or been in India in the past 14 days, Etihad Airways said on Monday. However, no reason has been provided for the suspension.
