Saudi Arabia has temporarily built a coronavirus shield around itself by stopping air and sea links between it and nine countries.
The Kingdom has also restricted the entry for arrivals from and travel to the nine countries.
This includes the restriction for passengers from the United Arab Emirates, the State of Kuwait and the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Republic of Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Republic of South Korea, the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Republic of Italy and the Republic of Iraq.
The Kingdom has also suspended the entry of those coming from those countries, and those passengers who were there 14 days prior to their arrival.
An official source at the Ministry of Interior said the measures were part of its efforts to control the new Coronavirus (COVID19).
