Tourist visas for Saudi Arabia, which have expired during the kingdom’s ban on international travel, will be renewed for three months, free of charge.

The announcement was made by the General Directorate of Passports, in cooperation with the National Information Centre.

International flights from Saudi were suspended on March 21 in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, with the exception of humanitarian and emergency cases, medical evacuation aircrafts and private aviation.

This was in addition to repatriation flights for those wishing to return to their home country during the pandemic.

It was announced on Wednesday that domestic flights would resume gradually from May 31 (Sunday).

Saudi Arabia, which has reported the highest number of coronavirus cases in the Gulf (76,726 cases), said on Tuesday that it will begin easing restrictions in a phased manner this week, with the evening curfew relaxed between 6am and 3pm between Thursday and Saturday.
