The Saudi tourist e-Visa is offered to foreign nationals from 49 countries and to GCC residents wishing to travel to Saudi Arabia for tourism activities, including Umrah, except during Hajj season. Indian nationals are not on the list of 49 countries. If you are an Indian national, who is also a GCC resident, who has an eligible occupation and a residency visa valid for at least 3 months, can apply online for the Saudi Arabia e-Visa.
If you are an Indian citizen wishing to work in Saudi Arabia, you can apply for a Saudi work visa, provided you have received a valid job offer and a signed employment contract from a Saudi employer. You will also be asked to provide personal information and undergo medical screening, among other requirements.
Saudi Arabia has excellent visa application turn-around times. Please note that times can vary, as each application is reviewed on an individual basis, and officials weigh many factors, including visa type, nationality, and purpose of visit
Indian nationals can begin the Saudi visa application process at the Saudi MOFA portal, after which they will submit their application to their nearest Saudi Arabia embassy or representation office.
