Remarks from the International Road Transport Union


Saudi Arabia

Saudi Customs will allow UAE freight trucks to enter the country, for a period of 5 days, starting 15 April. So far, only Saudi trucks with resident drivers were allowed to enter from UAE to KSA.


Customs are allowing only 25-30 trucks to enter the country, per day, since the start of the pandemic. This has created long queues at the border with Saudi Arabia, which could result in waiting times of up to 3 days.

Customs are allowing clearance to be done at the border rather than inland. This has significantly eased the traffic and the queues are gradually diminishing.
