Saudi Arabia announced they will introduce the e-visa system to general visitors.
The Kingdom first trialled the e-visa system but restricted it to those visiting the Kingdom for events only. After last weekend’s first test of the system at the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the Kingdom decided to continue and expand the service.
However, it will not be restricted to events, but open to general tourism from the following countries; United States, all Schengen (EU) countries, Australia, Japan, South Korea, South Africa, Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore.
More countries are expected to be added to this list soon.
