Saudi Arabia introduces free four-day transit visa for stopovers

Saudi Arabia has introduced a new free transit visa allowing stopover passengers to stay in the Kingdom for up to four days.

The transit visa comes into effect on Monday, and visitors can apply through the Saudia Airlines and Flynas websites, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported. The visa will be processed immediately. The new Saudi visa is free and entitles its holder to a four-day stay in the Kingdom. Once issued the visa is valid for three months.

The news visa is introduced in order to boost tourism – part of the Vision 2030 strategy, SPA reported.

The transit visa will be issued with plane tickets from Saudia and Flynas, and will be valid for three months.

The Ministry reiterated that the transit visa for stopover service will contribute to achieving the objectives of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 by bolstering the Kingdom’s position and benefiting from its distinguished strategic location as a link between continents, an attraction station for transients, and a global tourist destination.
