The Saudi Arabia government are implementing a phased approach to ease curfew restrictions. From 31 May – 20 June the curfew will be between 8pm to 6am, restricting movement throughout the country. After 21 June the curfew will be lifted in full, aside from the Makkah region.
The Saudi customs authority will start the process of increasing staffing numbers and are expected to reach 50% employees by 7 June, 75% by 14 June and 100% by 21 June. Domestic flights will start operating effective 31 May, with International flights still suspended, continuing to cause capacity constraints. However, commercial aircraft are operating to carry freight and freighter schedules have been ramped up. Cross-border road freight into Saudi Arabia for onward transit to another country is now prohibited with the exemption of medical supplies, foodstuffs, military and humanitarian relief. Foreign drivers and trucks are also restricted from entry in to Saudi Arabia; however, they are able to change driver at the border to a Saudi national who is able to drive foreign trailers for domestic distribution, before returning the trailer to the border.
