The Saudi Arabian Ports Authority, Mawani, and Customs have announced the continuity of business activities in all Saudi ports receiving container and all types of cargo vessels around the clock. Imports and exports continue to flow seamlessly in full compliance with the health and safety measures and protection guidelines prescribed by the Ministry of Health to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Both authorities are taking all the necessary precautions to regularly sanitize their facilities, as well as providing their staff with protective gear.

Traders, cargo owners and agents are invited to continue their business as usual, emphasizing the importance of preventative guidelines issued by the Saudi National Center for Disease Prevention and Control, and Ministry of Health.

Entry of customs brokers to customs arenas or administrative facilities is restricted to the utmost necessity. All transactions are being carried out through the Fasah platform and its technical support.
