Saudi reopened to vaccinated international visitors on 1 August 2021.
All visitors arriving in the country with a valid tourism visa must provide evidence of a full course of one the six vaccines currently recognized: two doses of the Oxford/Astra Zeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Sinopharm or Sinovac vaccines, or a single dose of the vaccine produced by Johnson and Johnson.
Saudi Arabia has launched a web portal at https://muqeem.sa/#/vaccine-registration/home for visitors to register their vaccination status. The site is available in Arabic and English.
Travelers arriving in Saudi Arabia are also required to provide a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before departure and an approved paper vaccination certificate, certified by the official health authorities in the issuing country.
There is no quarantine requirement for vaccinated travelers to Saudi.
All travelers entering on a previously issued tourism visa will be required to pay an additional fee of SAR 40 at the airport on their arrival to cover insurance for any COVID-19 related medical expenses.
Travelers are advised to check the current entry requirements with their chosen airline before they purchase a ticket.
