US, UK, Schengen visa holders eligible for Saudi visas on arrival

  • Saudi News

Holders of US, UK or Schengen visas can now obtain a visa on arrival in Saudi Arabia, it was announced on Saturday.

According to a source in the General Authority for Tourism and National Heritage, quoted by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, the move is a follow-on step to the kingdom’s recent implementation of tourist visas.

The source also said that a committee has been formed to identify goals and mechanisms necessary to implement the tourist visas.

Although holders of American, UK and Schengen visas will now be able to obtain a tourist visa on arrival, they are not eligible for the electronic visa system.

The visitor, however, must have already used his US, UK or Schengen visa prior to arriving in Saudi Arabia.
