Travel To Saudi Arabia
Traveling to Saudi Arabia has become much easier in recent years due to a number of initiatives and improvements implemented by the government. For instance, the e-visa system has been introduced, allowing travelers from select countries to apply for a visa online and receive it via email within minutes. Additionally, the visa-on-arrival process has been streamlined, with automated kiosks installed at major airports to expedite the process.
In 2023, Saudi Arabia introduced a new free transit visa allowing stopover passengers to stay in the Kingdom for up to four days. The stopover visa will allow passengers to stay in the country for up to 96 hours, enabling more visitors than ever to explore Saudi’s incomparable historical, cultural, and spiritual sites.
