These applications will be used to prove the status of vaccination and examinations from outside the country, with the commitment of those coming from the countries of the GCC to all protocols for entering the country, including conducting a PCR examination.

Students aged 12 years and above who plan to physically attend school next term are required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result prior to attending face-to-face classes.
Regardless of the age group or vaccination status, the updated procedures require all students of private schools and Charter School, including students of determination, to submit a negative test result with a validity period of no more than 14 days to be able to enter school on the first day of the new school year. The same procedures apply to teachers, administrators and third-party contractors.
