On 1 June 2020, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued updated travel advice for Saudi Arabia, which reads in part as follows: “If you need to travel to the airport during curfew hours, show your boarding pass or booking confirmation at checkpoints. Iqama holders can also request permission via the Tawakkalna app, though this is not essential.

“If you are a British national or resident located in Makkah and cannot secure permissions via the app, you can request an Embassy letter to support your transport to Jeddah airport by emailing KSA.Info@fco.gov.uk.”
