Before planning a trip to Saudi Arabia, foreigners must ensure that they possess a valid visa. In order to simplify the process of obtaining a visa, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has launched a tourist eVisa in 2019. According to the new visa policy, citizens of 49 eligible countries can apply for a visa online, allowing them to discover the rich heritage and experience the warm hospitality of the Saudi people. Other nationalities need to visit their nearest embassy or consulate to apply for a regular tourist visa.

On this occasion, the Minister of Tourism, Ahmed Al-Khateeb, said: “We welcome tourists again, and we are very happy to receive the Kingdom’s guests again after a pause due to the repercussions of the Coronavirus pandemic.”

He added: “We focused our efforts during the pause on close cooperation with our partners in all sectors to ensure a safe return through which visitors to the Kingdom can enjoy exploring its tourist treasures, important destinations and landmarks, enjoy unique tourist experiences and learn about the culture of generosity and hospitality characterizing Saudi society.”
