Saudi Arabia on Saturday announced the lifting of the suspension of direct flights from Nigeria and other affected countries.
Also, the Saudi Government scrapped major COVID-19 restrictions except wearing of masks in the two holy Mosques in Makka and Medina as well as other places of worship in the kingdom, reports Guardian Nigeria.
The directive, issued by Saudi Arabia Ministry of Interior, and confirmed by Saudi embassy in Nigeria, became effective from March 5, 2022.
Under the new policy, travellers will no longer be required to undergo mandatory COVID-19 quarantine or present PCR test result upon arrival in the holy land. However, the new directive compels all new travellers to Saudi Arabia to secure an insurance that covers the costs of treatment from coronavirus infection.
