How to apply for a Saudi Arabia tourist visa?
It is extremely simple to apply for a Saudi Arabia tourist visa. To receive the visa, simply fill out an application form, pay with a valid credit/debit card and provide a valid email address. The Saudi government has created a simple process that allows Dubai citizens to apply for a Saudi tourist visa without having to visit and spend hours at their local KSA embassy. Tourists can complete the entire process online. Because all you need are internet access and the necessary documents to complete the online application process.
To ensure adequate processing time, applicants should submit a Saudi visa application from the UAE at least three working days before the intended date of travel. Weekends and Saudi public holidays are not included in the visa processing time.
Before submitting the form and paying the visa fee, make sure that all of the information on the application is correct. That helps you to avoid delays in receiving the approved visa or application form rejection. This is because even minor errors in the details entered can cause problems with the application’s processing.
Can Saudi Arabia tourist visa holders perform Umrah?
Yes, they can do because Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced that visitors with tourist visas will now be able to perform Umrah. The decision was made to allow as many people as possible to participate in the ritual.
Visitors must obtain comprehensive health insurance to perform Umrah. That includes coverage for COVID-19 treatment, accidents resulting in death or disability and expenses resulting from flight delays or cancellations.
Saudi Arabia tourist visa is valid for one year from the date it is issued. The visa holder will be allowed to stay in Saudi Arabia for a maximum of 180 days this year. These days can be spending in a single visit or over several visits.
The visa cannot be extend for more than 1 year. Any traveler, however, can apply for a new one and pay a new fee. As long as he or she still meets the application requirements. I believe that for most tourists, this should be enough time to travel throughout Saudi Arabia.
Advantages of tourist visa:
- GCC residents can apply for a Saudi tourist visa safely and securely, which was previously not possible
- Travellers can safely pass through Saudi national immigration and stay in the country for a total of 180 days in Saudi Arabia because this is a multiple-entry visa. You cannot stay for more than 90 days in a single visit.
- So, tourists from Dubai can now visit Saudi Arabia without having to deal with time-consuming visa application procedures or visiting the Saudi embassy.
- Travellers can apply visa and make a payment over the internet at any time of day.
