Saudi Arabia reopens the Al-Durra port that links it with Jordan
The Al-Durra port, which connects Saudi Arabia and Jordan, has been opened on Wednesday, according to Saudi authorities.
The port had to close on December 26th due to maintenance work.
“Al-Durra outlet, located in the Haql Governorate in the Tabuk region, will begin providing its services to all travelers, importers, and exporters, beginning today”
Saudi Zakat, Tax, and Customs Authority announced on its website.
It went on to say that the port’s maintenance work was completed 100 percent of the time during the closed phase, well ahead of the scheduled reopening date.
All operating authorities have worked together to ensure that the port is ready to accommodate passengers.
With the start of the shutdown of the Al-Durra port, the government advised tourists from Saudi Arabia and Jordan to go to the “Halat Ammar” port in Tabuk or the Haditha port in Al-Jawf.
All arrivals and departures to and from the Kingdom, as well as those desiring to import, export, or transit, are serviced by the two ports.
