Saudi Arabia will lift its suspension on citizens travelling abroad and open land, sea and air borders on Monday May 17, the Interior Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
Saudi citizens who have received two vaccination shots, or one shot at least two weeks prior to travel, those who have recovered from the coronavirus within the last six months and those who are under 18 years old will be allowed to travel, the ministry said.
In January, the authorities had postponed the end of the travel ban for the public and the full reopening of entry points to May 17.
Saudi Arabia announced on Sunday 11 deaths from COVID-19 and 937 new infections.
