New port linking Saudi and Qatar to open tomorrow with over 12000 vehicle capacity

AlEkhbariya, a Saudi News Channel, has announced that the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will begin on Monday, 8 August 2022, the trial operation of the passenger section of the new Salwa port linking Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

The port's capacity would be 12,096 vehicles on arrival and 12,726 vehicles on departure, with the old port accommodating only 3,000 vehicles, which meant a capacity greater than before.

According to Al Sharq, the Saudi channel confirmed that raising the capacity will contribute to providing the best services to all operators, and those crossing to and from the Kingdom, especially during the next phase of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
