Saudi Arabia’s new vaccine conditions leave Pak travelers in a fix
Saudi Arabia’s new conditions related to the coronavirus vaccine have made life difficult for a lot of Pakistanis aspiring to travel to the kingdom as the kingdom has not included in its list of recommended vaccines, any of the ones that have been manufactured in China.
The cost of the quarantine will have to be paid by the passengers themselves. The proposed conditions will be implemented from May 20. Pakistan launched its coronavirus vaccination drive on February 2, after receiving the first batch of the Sinopharm vaccine. In its first phase, Pakistan has been vaccinating frontline healthcare workers. The campaign will soon be extended to include citizens under 40 years old. Sinopharm, developed by a state-run pharmaceutical company in China, has shown to be 79 percent effective.
