After submitting the form
The Government of Saudi Arabia has introduced a variety of different safety measures within the country to help keep the Covid-19 situation under control and to keep the general public safe.
One of the implemented measures is the Muqeem Arrival Registration that is required to be completed by every incoming visitor to Saudi Arabia (foreign travellers and Saudi residents).
Travellers should provide a proof of being fully vaccinated, a negative Covid-19 test (either PCR or antigen), and wear masks while in Saudi.
Some visitors may need to self-isolate after arrival (if not fully vaccinated). Proof of recovery is not considered valid by the Saudi Government to help avoid the quarantine period.
Children under the age of 8 are currently exempt from the testing requirement.
It’s worth noting that the Covid-19 entry restrictions in Saudi Arabia may change over time (even rapidly), and therefore, it’s best to check the current requirements a few days before arrival to adhere to the applicable rules and cross the border with no issues.
