JEDDAH — Authorities in Saudi Arabia will introduce e-permits for one hour of walk daily during the curfew period.

The e-permit will available upon request through Tawakkalna application. The permit will be restricted to the neighborhood zone and it will be for one hour only.

The Tawaklana application was launched earlier this month as part of the close cooperation between the Ministry of Health and the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA), which aims to manage the movement permit system of government entities as well as private sector enterprises during the curfew time.

The application consists of many features that contribute to facilitating the access of the authorized persons to travel permits.
