Re: KSA Job Offer

Nice to have you back.

Yeah if you are from the UK you have to spend 14 days outside of the UK before entering KSA. When I arrived in KSA in December I had to re-quarantine and re-test.

Re: KSA Job Offer

Re: KSA Job Offer

Ouch! Well hopefully you get back. Not like Emirates to have poor customer service.

Re: KSA Job Offer

Just had my second COVID19 test after having to re-quarantine. I have to say the test here is much better than my UK Fit to Fly test. So much faster and much less invasive - hopefully not at the cost...

Re: KSA Job Offer
