Business Visa

If the many massive developments Saudi Arabia has been working on lately are of interest to you, you’ll be happy to know that the Kingdom is rolling out a brand-new business visit visa to Saudi Arabia. The new online service called “Visiting Investor” allows foreign investors to apply for a digital visit visa and explore all the business opportunities the Kingdom has to offer.



The Saudi Arabian eVisa was first introduced back in 2022 through a decree signed by the Ministry of Tourism. Residents of the GCC can apply for a tourism eVisa before arriving in Saudi Arabia via an online portal. The Kingdom’s visa-on-arrival scheme has also been extended to permanent residents of the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the United States are among the 63 eligible countries. Through the visa, you can get a 12-month tourism visa on arrival in Saudi Arabia without needing to apply in advance.
