Non-Saudi citizens who had been in any country identified as having the new covid variant strain must spend no less than 14 days in another country (such as the Philippines) BEFORE entering KSA.  (Saudi nationals and certain humanitarian and urgent cases are exempted from this requirement but will be required to undergo a 14-day home quarantine after arrival in KSA.)
