Saudi Arabia Visa – How to Get a Saudi Arabia Visa?

GENERIC VISA INFORMATIONIs your next destination Saudi Arabia? If so, you will have to obtain a Saudi Arabia visa in order to travel to Saudi Arabia on tourism and business purposes. We strongly urge travelers to not have any signs of travel to Israel prior to traveling to Saudi Arabia to avoid complications. Also, you should make sure that your current passport has a minimum validity of 6 months after departing Saudi Arabia. Also, your passport should have a minimum of (2) blank visa pages to accommodate for any visa stamps.

We do not have the exact documents that are required for acquiring a tourist visa, but we will provide you with what is typically asked for. The documents that are typically requested are a Saudi Arabia visa application form, your signed United States passport with a minimum of 6 months validity, (2) approved passport photographs, an itinerary of your trip, and proof of a yellow fever vaccination. Also, you should present a copy of your hotel reservations with the applicants name on the reservation for the hotel, or if staying with family or friends a notarized letter of invitation from them is required. Sometimes, a bank statement is also asked for to prove sufficient funds.

Everything mentioned above should be included in your documents for a business visa with 1 more condition. The condition is a business letter. A business letter will include an introduction of the applicant, state the type of business being conducted, the type of visa along with validity length, and proof of sufficient funds.
