The eVisa to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an electronic visa that allows eligible citizens to travel to Saudi Arabia for purposes of tourism.
The tourist eVisa for Saudi Arabia was introduced by the Saudi government in 2019 in order to facilitate the process of applying for a visa and open the country up to foreign tourism.
The Saudi Arabia online visa is a multiple entry visa which allows a stay of 90 days with each entry to the country, for a total stay of 180 days during its validity. The Saudi visa online is valid for a total of 1 year from the date of issue.
Those who apply for the Saudi online visa are granted a Mandatory Insurance Policy linked to the eVisa, which is a compulsory requirement to travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. An insurance provider is randomly assigned by the government of Saudi Arabia at the moment the eVisa is processed.
Eligible citizens are able to complete the simple Saudi visa application online in just a few minutes. It is necessary to fill in the Saudi Arabia eVisa form with personal and passport information and travel details, and answer a few security questions in order to receive an approved Saudi tourist visa via email.
Once approved, the traveler is able to use their Saudi eVisa to enter Saudi Arabia through any of its seaports, as well as certain designated airports and land border checkpoints.
To visit Saudi Arabia for purposes other than tourism, such as for business activities, foreign citizens will be required to contact their nearest Saudi Embassy or Consulate.
