Omikron’s presence was first confirmed in Saudi Arabia in the Gulf. The infection was confirmed by a Saudi national from North Africa. The Ministry of Health said he and his associates had been quarantined.
The Kovid variant was reported when six countries, including India, were allowed direct entry into Saudi Arabia. No need to stay in another country for 14 days to come to Saudi anymore. In addition to India, citizens of Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil and Vietnam are also allowed to enter. The ban on those in these countries has been lifted at all airports and land naval borders. But expats are worried that the new situation will lead to stricter travel restrictions.
Saudi Arabia has already banned flights from 14 African countries, including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho, Iswatini, Malawi, Zambia, Madagascar, Angola, Seychelles, Mauritius and the Comoros. The entry of non-Saudis coming directly or indirectly from these countries has also been suspended.
