Exceptional categories include public and military sector employees, diplomats and their families, those working for public or non – profit private sector jobs abroad, businessmen, patients who need treatment aboard, those studying abroad as well as people with humanitarian cases, and sports teams.

GCC citizens and non – Saudi residents with valid residency, or visitors’ visa will be allowed to enter the kingdom as of September 15 on proving they are COVID-19 negative.

The kingdom introduces stringent measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in March, including 24-hour curfews on most towns and cities.

The Kingdom has recorded 325, 651 COVID-19 cases and 4,268 deaths.
