This is what happened with 3 Qatari citizens at the Qatar-KSA border 

Saudi Arabian authorities stopped three Qatari citizens, who are officials of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) General Secretariat, from entering the country and sent them back through the Salwa border.

The website identified the three officials as Fahad Al Hajri, Majed Al Suwaidi and Meshaal Al Khalifa.

The development came less than six months after Saudi authorities passed a decision on July 8 to exclude Qatari nationals working in the GCC General Secretariat from the measures imposed on Qataris as part of the boycott imposed on Doha.

“The Secretariat has received the approval of Saudi Arabia for the continuation of the status of GCC nationals in the General Secretariat according to applicable regulations and to facilitate their stay in their current positions in the host country,” said a letter from the GCC Secretariat to Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“It also applies to Qatari workers in all international and regional institutions based in Saudi Arabia,” the letter added.

The move came a few hours after reports appeared in Kuwaiti media about imminent breakthrough in the ongoing Gulf crisis and the chances of holding the GCC summit in December, in the presence of all the six countries.
