Saudi Arabia is opening its doors to visitors from all over the world with a new entry visa regime in place as of September 27, 2019. Tourists will obtain a multiple-entry visa valid for a year that will allow them to stay in the country for up to 90 days.
The visa is relevant to tourism-related activities and Umrah (excluding Hajj season) and excludes other activities such as studying.
The new visa system is a historic milestone in opening Saudi Arabia to tourism. International visitors will discover the warm hospitality of Saudi people: our rich heritage, vibrant culture, and diverse and breath-taking landscapes, from the mountains of Abha to the beaches of the Red Sea and the shifting sands of the Empty Quarter.
