Indians, Pakistanis Can Apply for Tourist Visa at Saudi Embassy or Consulate

Indians, Pakistanis, and citizens from the South Asian continent are eligible for a Saudi tourist visa through the Kingdom’s embassies and consulates.

To apply for a tourist visa from the Saudi Embassy or Consulate, applicants should be at least 18 years old while underage applicants require a guardian.

According to the Saudi Tourism website, there is no need to mention your religion as it is not relevant and a letter from your sponsor is also not required for the visa application.

Before applying, make sure your passport is valid for at least six months at the time of entering Saudi Arabia. Refunds in the event of rejection are not possible, and visa fees are also non-refundable.

It is also important to note that applicants will be charged SR 100 each day of overstaying the tourist visa.

Documents required:

  • Proof of accommodation
  • Return ticket
  • Proof of employment
  • Bank statement

Supporting documents:

  • Details of Identification Documents
  • Home address
  • Travel itinerary

The e-visa will be a one-year, multiple-entry visa, allowing tourists to spend up to 90 days in the Kingdom.

The e-visa process can be carried out in two steps, and all that eligible applicants are required to do is fill out the application form, and then pay the SR 440 visa fee.
