Germany is on the list of 35 countries whose citizens will be able to apply for a Saudi Arabia e-visa as soon as it becomes available at the end of the first quarter 20018 (April). As a result, you do not have to go to Saudi Arabia’s embassy to get your visa, but you can get it online with minimal effort. Saudi Arabia’s government decided to adopt this change in their visa policy because the oil prices suffered quite a bit in the last few years. That is why they needed to enhance tourism, and they thought that electronic visas would give their tourism a boost, thus bringing some revenue from something other than oil. The initiative first came up in 2006, but only know it will come into effect.
While you can pick from many online visa service providers, you should go with iVisa. iVisa has a few years of experience under its sleeves, and all of its resources are dedicated to helping you get your visa as easy as possible. Here are a few reasons why you should employ iVisa:
It could not be simpler – you are no longer required to go to an embassy to get your visa. You can also disregard business hours and apply whenever you want. The fact that you can apply from home or from work is a huge selling point.
The processing takes very little time – usually, iVisa provides three options when it comes to processing, but even the slowest of them will get your visa in your e-mail inbox quickly.
It costs just a little – iVisa is very well aware of the offers on the market, which is why it provides excellent service at competitive prices. Of course, the price of your visa is determined by the processing time you choose. As you can expect, the faster you want your visa, the more money you spend.
Easy application forms – everyone dislikes application forms, which is why iVisa designed an application form that is easy to comprehend and fill in. It is highly unlikely that you will have trouble getting through it.
That is a question without a definite answer for the time being. It seems that the official guidelines will be released only after the bylaws are adopted, so we must wait a little while longer. However, as a general requirement, if you wish to apply for a Saudi Arabia e-visa, you need a valid passport that remains as such for another 6 months at least. Other than that, we know nothing about requirements.
Until the guidelines are released, you can fix the passport issue if you do not have one. Even so, rest assured that the Saudi Arabia e-visa for Germans will go live soon, and iVisa will do its best to help you get it. All you have to do is wait and check for the latest updates.
