Saudi Arabia becoming more and more accessible to tourists

Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage

‏Opening its arms to more international visitors, the Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage (SCTH) recently announced that visitors can now use their existing UK, US and Schengen area country visas to obtain Saudi Arabia visitor visas at airport arrivals, regardless of their citizenship.

Those wishing to benefit from the new regulation must have previously used the visa to travel to any one of these countries before entering Saudi Arabia.

At the moment, citizens from 49 countries are eligible to apply for an e-visa online or get a visa on arrival. The tourist visa grants visitors a stay of up to three months per entry.
