The restaurants and cafes across Saudi Arabia are no longer required to have gender-segregated entrances, as per the officials.
The ministry of the municipalities and the rural affairs tweeted on Sunday that it was eradicating the many requirements for the restaurants, which includes the need for a separate entrance for the bachelors and a separate entrance for the families.
Eateries have long asked for one entrance for single men and another for women and families only. It was not clear whether a bar on the seating inside the restaurants would also be removed.
There was no announcement of the changes to other public setups, like schools and hospitals, which apparently are likely to remain separated for now.
