Saudi Arabia is welcoming the Indian universities to start their campuses there. At present, the dialogues are going on between IIT Delhi and Saudi authorities, he said. Mr Sayeed also assured that the embassy is trying to bring back Indians to Saudi Arabia, who were stranded in India after the lockdown. “We have received positive response from the competent authorities,” he said, adding that through the Vande Bharat Mission flights, the embassy has helped over 6 lakh Indians to return to their home country during the Covid-19 lockdown. He also clarified that Indian vaccination certificates are not required to be attested from India for registering with the Tawakkalna app, the Saudi Government’s mobile app to track Covid-19 in real-time and control its spread.

The ambassador urged social activists and entrepreneurs to come forward and support the parents who are unable to pay their wards’ tuition fees due to financial constraints.

He also offered to help the Indian business community registered with the Ministry of Investment (previously known as Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority or SAGIA).
