The Saudi Embassy in the United Arab Emirates said in a statement on Tuesday that Saudi citizens who wished to return to the Kingdom have 72 hours to do so.
The embassy advised citizens that they can go back from Dubai Airport using the Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) flights.
They can also use the land border crossing Al Batha in Saudi Arabia near UAE’s Al Ghweifat border.
Saudi citizens have also been advised to contact the embassy in Abu Dhabi and the consulate in Dubai for assistance.
Saudi Arabia had earlier said it was suspending the entry of those coming from a number of countries affected by the coronavirus, or the entry of those who were there 14 days prior to their arrival.
