Saudi Arabia has temporarily suspended land and sea travel to and from Oman, France, Germany, Turkey and Spain.

The measure applies to both citizens and residents and has been taken to help stem the spread of coronavirus. 

Saudi Arabia's authorities say people coming from these countries - or who have visited any of them within 14 days prior to travel to Saudi Arabia - will not be allowed to enter the Kingdom. .

Earlier today, the country suspended travel to the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria, South Korea, Egypt, Italy and Iraq in response to the coronavirus threat.
