Apply for a business visa to Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian business visa is for limited business transactions with a Saudi sponsor, whether an individual or a company. In theory, this visa grants the right to conduct business meetings and negotiations. However, individuals can also use the Saudi business visa to provide temporary or short-term services such as management consulting or technical services.

It is important to distinguish between a business visa and a work visa. For those who intend to take up employment in Saudi Arabia, it is necessary to obtain a work visa before travelling. If your business visa states 'prohibited to work', this means that you are not authorised to undertake work for a Saudi company and be paid for it. Violation of this requirement may result in detention, deportation, monetary fines and a ban on re-entry to the Kingdom.
