Saudi Arabia will partially lift its suspension of international flights on September 15 to allow “exceptional categories” of citizens and residents to travel, the state news agency SPA said on Sunday.

The kingdom will scrap all travel restrictions on air, land and sea transport for citizens on January 1, 2021, it said.

In March, the kingdom suspended international flights to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Others are patients who need treatment abroad, those studying abroad as well as people with humanitarian cases and sports teams.

GCC citizens and non-Saudi residents with valid residency or visitors’ visas will be allowed to enter the kingdom as of September 15 conditional on proving they are COVID-19 negative.

The kingdom introduced stringent measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in March, including 24-hour curfews on most towns and cities.

The Kingdom has recorded 325,651 COVID-19 cases and 4,268 deaths.
