In the interest of the General Transport Authority to facilitate the procedures of citizens and companies, coordination has been made with the security authorities on the following mechanism for receiving and delivering vehicles according to the following:
*The allowing period for these companies begins from the date of 28/08/1441, and for a period of (5) five days, to be from six in the morning until three in the evening, for the cities and governorates in which a total ban is applied, namely (Dammam, Khobar, Dhahran, Qatif, Hofuf)
* The companies referred to above are reviewing the department's police department to request the necessary permits to open their branches, and permits for their employees and they also provide them with a list of names and proof of identity for the tenants or car owners that have been transferred by the car transport companies to agree to their movement during the grace period allowed to them.
*These establishments are obliged not to conclude any new contracts during the allowing period referred to in paragraph (1).
Accordingly, we hope that the governorate police department to which you are affiliated will quickly review within a period of (24) hours prior to the date of application, to complete the procedures for issuing the necessary permits, and to coordinate with your clients to receive rental cars, and to deliver cars transported on trucks to their owners by car transport companies, during the indicated allowing period above.
