Saudi Arabia is opening its doors. 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.
Tourists from eligible countries can apply for a tourist visa online through our fast and easy-to-use e-Visa portal ahead of their trip or get their visa upon arrival in Saudi Arabia via visa kiosks at immigration. Tourists from other countries should apply for a consulate visa through Saudi embassies and consulates.
Applying for a tourist visa to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is easy. If you are from one of the 49 eligible countries, you can apply through the e-Visa website. Other countries need to apply through their nearest Saudi embassy or consulate.
