This decision imposes home quarantine on all immunized citizens and expatriates for one week from the date of their arrival in the country, and in case they desire to end the quarantine they should make a PCR test and pay inside the country, and once the test is out and is negative from Coronavirus Covid-19, the quarantine will end accordingly, it added.
