For visitors, the entry will be allowed only if the person is fully vaccinated 14 days prior to entering the country. GCC citizens who had recovered from Covid-19 in the last 12 months and received a single dose of vaccine will be exempted from quarantine, the ministry said.
All travellers need to present a negative PCR test result done within 72 hours before they enter the country. They should also receive an approval through Ehteraz app before boarding.
Quarantine rules for citizens and residents are fixed after classifying countries into three categories. Countries are classified into red, yellow and green, and unvaccinated travellers are required to undergo institutional quarantine depending on the countries they travel from, the ministry said in its tweet.
