Saudi Arabia Is Issuing Tourist Visas

Helooo, A Quick Blog just to Tell you all about this amazing news. 😎 Saudi Arabia Is Issuing Tourist Visas For The First Time Effective From Next Month, including for lone women. 😍

Saudi Arabia might be a standout amongst the most powerful nations in the Center East. But it rarely registers on most holidaymakers’ wish lists. That might be going to change, however after it announced plans to introduce tourist visas for the first time. Tourist visas to the Kingdom will be issued from the first of April 2018, and no this is no April Fools joke. There are even plans to build an entertainment capital to rival that of Las Vegas. 🤗

Saudi Arabia is soon going to allow visitors from other countries who wish to sightsee, business travellers, pilgrims and relatives into its arms. Women aged 25 and above will be issued a 30-day single-entry tourist visa without a male chaperone.  Women aged 25 and over can be granted a tourist visa to go to Saudi Arabia alone. A spokesman for the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH) has said. However, women under 25 must be accompanied by a family member.

Omar Al-Mubarak, director general of the commission’s licensing department, said: “The tourist visa will be a single-entry visa, and valid for 30 days maximum. This visa is added to those currently available in the Kingdom. It is independent of work, visit, Hajj and Umrah visas.”

According to an article by Express, the near-approaching move is just one of the nation’s great actions toward its Vision 2030’s plan to have 30 million visitors per year.

The initiative is part of the National Transformation Program 2020 and falls within the framework of the commission’s efforts to achieve Vision 2030, which gives much attention to the tourism industry.

So, thought about who you’re inviting to visit yet? 🤔

  • Er-Kai Wang, an associate lecturer at the Australian National University, was quoted by The Sydney Morning Herald as saying that a room for opportunity for a permanent residency was being offered through the 485 visa, though with 457 Visas it is much easier. In 2017, the Turnbull government reduced the number of eligible occupations for the 457 visa, which will be replaced in March 2018 by substituting it with stricter TSS (Temporary Skills Shortage) visas.
