  • Saudi authorities took an unprecedented action
    according to which the kingdom would go on
    lockdown. As the coronavirus fears rise and the
    World Health Organization has also declared it a
    global pandemic, the Saudi officials have asked
    the pilgrims and tourists to leave the kingdom in
    the next 72 hours, i.e. till 14th March.

  • In this regard, foreigners who hold Saudi
    Arabias residency or Iqama have the choice to
    stay in the kingdom, return in the kingdom from
    other countries, or leave it within the 72 hours
    timeframe. After 72 hours, no flights would
    operate to and from Saudi Arabia as the country
    would go on a temporary lockdown.

  • PIA, the national flag carrier of Pakistan, has
    announced that the schedule of additional flights
    that will pick the Pakistanis from the kingdom
    would be announced soon.

The Travel Ban Has Been Extended For 45 Days
  • Earlier, the Saudi government not only halted the
    flights but also suspended travel of residents
    and citizens of various states. The countries
    included in this decision were Pakistan, India,
    Sri Lanka, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia,
    Philippines, Switzerland, and the countries of
    the European Union.

Cases Of Coronavirus In The Kingdom
  • Currently, there are a total of 45 cases of
    coronavirus in the kingdom. The officials are
    saying that the virus would spread rapidly if the
    stringent measures are not taken to counter it.
    Therefore, they have pulled out all the stops to
    ensure that the infected people are quarantined,
    and other people do not contract the deadly virus.

  • Though the passenger flights have been banned,
    the operations of commercial and cargo flights
    are still going on. Similarly, the passage of
    exceptional humanitarian cases would also not be
    restricted. In addition, the health workers
    belonging to India and the Philippines are also
    excluded from the decision.
