Covid booster dose along with negative RT-PCR test mandatory for entering Saudi Arabia
The Saudi Civil Aviation Authority has made the third booster dose of Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for inbound travellers (18 years and above) who have taken their second vaccine 8 months ago or earlier. Before boarding, a passenger has to ensure that Tawakkalna app is showing the vaccine status as ‘immune’. (Those who have not received the booster dose 8 months after the second dose are not considered immune.)
Passengers must hold a valid negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test certificate of an Antigen test report carried out within 48 hours before departure to the Kingdom, regardless of the immunisation status. Children below the age of 8 years are exempt from this requirement.
