Travelling to Saudi Arabia: Register vaccination status online

No entry without vaccine registration…

All travellers arriving in Saudi Arabia, including nationals of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and holders of new visas, who have been vaccinated with one of the Covid-19 vaccines, need to register their vaccination status online.

Everyone is to complete the vaccination registration process online before their arrival by visiting: https://muqeem.sa/#/vaccine-registration/home.

This process would facilitate and accelerate the entry procedures for the arrivals and reduce the waiting period at entry points.

According to the Public Health Authority (Weqaya), registration is available only to those who have completed taking the doses for the following approved vaccines:

  • Two doses for the Pfizer, AstraZeneca, or Moderna; or
  • One dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine; as well as
  • Presenting proof for vaccination on arrival – The vaccination certificates are required to be attested by the official health authorities in the country of arriving travellers (the Ministry of Health or an authorised health authority).

Those who received only one dose of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca, or Moderna vaccines cannot register on the website, and institutional quarantine measures will be imposed on them on arrival.

The online registration is not required for travellers under the age of 18.

For Saudi citizens and residents, the ‘Immune’ status shown on the Tawakkalna app, either with the first dose or both, and those who have recovered from the virus for a period not exceeding six months, is sufficient.

Otherwise, all those over the age of eight need to submit a negative PCR Covid-19 test taken not more than 72 hours before their scheduled departure for the Kingdom.
