Saudi Arabia has warned that it will impose fines of up to SR 500,000 (INR 99,00,527) on passengers arriving on international flights from covid-19 affected countries in violation of set protocals regarding the prevention of the coronavirus pandemic.

A similar penalty will also apply to operators or owners of means of transport.

Passengers arriving in the Kingdom on international flights and those responsible for transport and travel through ports of entry must disclose whether they had visited any country affected by an outbreak of the coronavirus or any of its mutated strains.

If they fail to disclose it, strict punitive action will be taken against them.

That violator shall be punished with a fine of up to half a million riyals, and the violator, operator, or owner of the means of transportation shall bear any damages resulting from the contravention.

If the violation is accompanied by a criminal act, the case against the offender shall be referred to the Public Prosecution before the case is filed before the competent court, the Public Prosecution said.
