Saudi Arabia will apply home quarantine upon any of the groups excluded from institutional quarantine who have not completed receiving doses of any of the approved vaccines in the Kingdom, said an official source at the Ministry of Interior.

An examination is conducted within 48 hours after coming to the Kingdom by one of the means approved by the Ministry of Health, proving that there is no infection with Covid-19 and the quarantine period ends with the issuance of a negative examination result, reported Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

A person under the age of eight years is excluded from the examination requirement, and the period of home quarantine for him/her ends after 48 hours from arriving in the Kingdom.

The penalties prescribed for violating quarantine instructions shall be applied when violating any of the provisions mentioned above.

The source stressed the need for everyone to adhere to the precautionary and preventive measures, and not to be lenient in applying health requirements.

The source explained that all precautionary and preventive measures for travel are subject to continuous evaluation by the Public Health Authority (Weqaya), according to the developments in the epidemiological situation.
