ABOUT Saudi VISA

Saudi Tourist Visa

Saudi Arabia has become one of the easiest countries to travel to, allowing citizens from 49 countries to apply online for the Saudi e-Visa or obtain a visa-on-arrival at a Saudi port of entry. The Saudi tourist visa is for travelers wishing to enter Saudi Arabia for tourism, short-term business, or pilgrimage purposes, not including Hajj and long-term activities, such as employment or study. The Saudi tourist visa options are:

  • e-Visa: Citizens from 49 countries and GCC residents are eligible to apply online for Saudi e-Visa, allowing them a 90-day stay within a 1-year eligibility period.
  • Visa-on-arrival: Citizens from 49 countries are eligible to obtain a visa-on-arrival at a Saudi port-of entry, allowing them a 90-day stay within a 1-year eligibility period. Citizens of any nationality who hold a USA, UK and Schengen tourist or business visa are also eligible for a visa-on-arrival, as long as they have used their visa at least once and are traveling with a Saudi national carrier. It is important to note that Saudi visa-on-arrivals require a credit/debit card payment at Saudi points of entry.
  • Consulate visa: Foreign nationals not eligible to travel visa-free or obtain a visa-on-arrival must apply for a Saudi sticker visa at their nearest Saudi embassy or representation office abroad. Saudi sticker visas are granted as single-entry for 30 days or multiple entry for 90 days.


The Saudi tourist visa is multiple entry and valid for 3 months within a 1-year validity period, (unless otherwise specified on the visa). It is important to note that the maximum stay duration allowed in Saudi Arabia is a maximum of 3 months and is non-extendable.
