Keep up! Staying abreast of Saudi tourist visa changes.
For those who are not aware, Saudi Arabia recently announced game-changing e-visa regulations for tourists. On September 27th a high-profile event provided the backdrop for a game-changing announcement that online and on-arrival visas would now be available for 49 countries.
Following hard on the heals of this ground-breaking moment, the Saudi government revealed that other nationalities who have a valid commercial or tourist visa from the US, UK and EU
Schengen area will also now be eligible for the tourist e-visa. The potentially transformative affects of these steps cannot be overstated. Less than a month ago, Saudi Arabia was one of the most difficult places in the world to visit. Now its one of the easiest! We tested the process online and had an e-visa issued in less than 5 minutes. So what does it entitle a successful applicant to?
All e-visas are valid for 12 months from the date of issue and allow multiple entry during that time. Single trips are limited to 90 days, which should give even the most curious and intrepid travelers time to cover most of the existing and accessible destinations. According to official sources, Saudi Arabia has issued 24,000 tourist visas in the first 2 weeks of availability, which is pretty impressive and bodes well for the future!
