Saudi Arabia will be restricting access to public spaces to only those who have been from August 1, the Kingdom’s Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs said.


Unvaccinated individuals will be barred from entering public establishments, such as malls, restaurants, retail stores, and markets, among others. Anyone visiting these spaces will need to show proof of vaccination, the ministry said.


“In line with the ministry’s efforts to protect the public’s health, vaccination is required to enter public and private facilities, while complying with precautionary measures to maintain public health,” the ministry said.


This follows the decision last week to bar citizens from traveling abroad if they haven’t received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
