Saudi Arabia eases tourist visa rules for GCC residents

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that all GCC residents can now apply for a visit visa to the Kingdom irrespective of their professions.

The visa allows visitors to enjoy Saudi Arabia’s diverse tourist destinations and perform Umrah throughout the year.

This is the latest in a series of announcements across the Saudi tourism eco-system that aims to attract regional tourists and provide more activities for visitors coming from the GCC countries.

GCC countries include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.

People wishing to visit the Kingdom can view more information and apply for a visit visa on www.visa.visitsaudi.com.

The Visit Saudi app also provides a gateway for travelers to discover all the events, international festivals, inspiring tourism experiences, and enjoy the country’s climate, natural and cultural diversity, and the authentic generosity and hospitality of the Saudi people.

The tourist visa was launched in 2019, to keep up with the development and growth of the tourism sector.

In 2022, the Saudi Tourism Authority launched the Nusuk platform in collaboration with the Pilgrim Experience Program.

Nusuk Platform

Nusuk, Saudi’s first-ever official integrated digital platform, offers all pilgrims and visitors an easy-to-use planning gateway for their journeys to Makkah and Madinah, and beyond.

With Nusuk, travelers from all over the world can easily organize their entire visit, from applying for an eVisa to booking hotels and flights. To book Umrah travel, you can visit www.Nusuk.sa.

Saudi Arabia has seen a remarkable increase in the number of visitors every year, reaching more than 93 million visits in 2022.

The tourism sector aims to reach 100 million visits annually by 2030.
