The Saudi Arabian government has warned against travel to destinations on the Kingdom’s ban list amid COVID-19.
The Interior Ministry said citizens who have traveled to banned countries will be barred from traveling for three years, state news agency SPA reported.
Saudi citizens have been earlier prohibited from traveling to Indonesia over coronavirus disease concerns. Saudi citizens currently in the Asian nation have been told to exercise caution, and stay away from areas with high infection rates.
Saudi authorities have also banned travel, without prior permission, to and from the UAE, Ethiopia and Vietnam, over concerns about the spread of more-infectious variants of the coronavirus.
