March 2021 might look like the end of a travel ban for Saudi Arabia as the country has announced that international flights will resume from March.

Saturday was a day of travel bookings and agencies receiving enquiries.

After a ten month international travel ban and suspension of tourism owing to the pandemic, the country is all set to welcome tourists from March 31, 2021. The authorities, after observing the significant decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country, have decided to end the travel suspension. 

As per the statement from the Ministry of Interior, the travel ban will be lifted but a few preventive measures and restrictions will be maintained. Earlier Saudi Arabia had planned to resume international flights from January 1, 2021, but had to postpone owing to the discovery of a new strain of COVID-19.

From March 31, citizens can travel to other countries and return back as well. The ban will be lifted from all air and sea routes, and land borders will also be opened.
