The Saudi Arabia government is currently enforcing a flight suspension effectively barring inbound and outbound travel to and from certain countries. Fortunately, Nepalese nationals with plans on travelling to Saudi Arabia are not categorized among the list of banned travellers.

So who can travel from Nepal to Saudi Arabia right now? What are the latest travel guidelines? Keep reading to find out.

Can I travel from Nepal to Saudi Arabia?

If you have been fully vaccinated, then mostly yes, you can.

Non-Saudi nationals holding tourist visas are now allowed to enter the Kingdom should they have completed the required doses of one of the COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Saudi Ministry of Health. 

Travellers are required to provide a negative PCR test certificate issued from a verified laboratory that does not exceed 72 hours from the time the test is undertaken until departing to the Kingdom. Vaccinated tourists will be allowed to enter without having to be institutionally quarantined.

International arrivals must also have successfully registered on the Arrival Registration Platform

 

Saudi Arabia vaccination requirements

Saudi Arabia is requiring all non-Saudi arrivals to have been fully vaccinated. A vaccination certificate is thus necessary from one of the following:

  • 2 doses of Pfizer BioNTech
  • 2 doses of Oxford AstraZeneca
  • 2 doses of Moderna
  • 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson

The duration between receiving the last dose (the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the first dose of a single dose vaccine) must not be less than 14 days. Travellers must carry their vaccine certificates at all times during their stay in the kingdom (or proof of health status through applications and accredited programs in the kingdom)

Travellers who have completed two doses of the Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines will also be accepted on the condition that they have received an additional dose of one of the vaccines approved in the Kingdom mentioned above.

Vaccinated travellers, except Saudi citizens and those who are exempt, must fill out the Registration Immunization Information Form before departure.

You can find the full details on the Saudia travel requirements page.

 

Saudi Arabia quarantine requirements

Vaccinated individuals will be exempted from both, quarantine as well as testing requirements, provided they show proof of immunization.

Otherwise, all non-Saudi arrivals over the age of eight must provide a negative PCR test certificate conducted by a verified laboratory issued within 72 hours. Within 24 hours of arrival, all non-Saudi travellers over the age of eight will be subjected to another PCR test and proceed to serve a 7-day institutional quarantine. On the 7th day, a second PCR test will be conducted and if the result is negative, they are permitted to leave quarantine on the 8th day.

Vaccinated individuals will be exempted from both, quarantine as well as testing requirements, provided they show proof of immunization.
