However, there is an exemption in which holders of a Business or Tourist Visa to the United Kingdom, the United States or an EU Country should have visited the place before applying for a Saudi Arabian Visa.

The first-degree relatives of those holding the aforementioned visas will also be granted entry and can receive visa-on-arrival.

The authority urged travelers to carry all relevant documents and respect the rules and regulations of the land.

However, this visa will not allow applicants to perform Hajj or Umrah during pilgrimage season.
