Basic Requirements

The Saudi Arabia visa process is something that many international travellers visiting the country will have to navigate, and there are a variety of visa classes. You can apply for your visa up to 3 months before your intended arrival date.

*Please note: Saudi Arabia tourist visas are only issued to people visiting family or friends.

Country-Specific Requirements

Applicants from all countries require a visa to enter Saudi Arabia, except for:

  • Nationals of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and United Arab Emirates.
  • Transit passengers continuing their journey by the same or first connecting aircraft within 18 hours, provided they hold valid onward or return documentation, do not leave the airport and make no further landing in Saudi Arabia (except nationals of Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and Nigeria who always require a transit visa).
  • Holders of re-entry permits and ‘Landing Permits’ issued by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Processing Times

When applying for a Saudi Arabia visa, processing time and fees are very dependent on the visa class, as well as the nationality of the applicant and the time of year. Both the time taken to process the visa application and the cost are subject to change, but by having an understanding of each Saudi Arabia visa class and seeking professional assistance when making an application, you can be assured the most time and cost efficient process possible.
