Tourists who plan to visit Saudi Arabia must have a visa unless they are citizens of countries that are authorized to enter the country without a visa. Tourists must present the required documents including passport, health insurance and confirmation of hotel or travel program booking. Tourists can obtain an e-tourist visa, which will be valid for 30 days or a year, depending on the type of visa.

Saudi Arabia has become more attractive to tourists and businesses by reducing insurance fees for tourist visa. This change is an important step in the development of the tourism sector in the country and may attract more tourists to Saudi Arabia.
