Italy, together with another 34 states, are the countries whose citizens will be able to apply for a Saudi Arabi electronic visa when it goes live in just a couple of weeks. All eligible nationalities will be able to apply online and avoid a trip to the kingdom’s embassy. As you can imagine, a Saudi Arabia eVisa for Italians will be more accessible than ever.
This initiative came as a means of enhancing tourism. Saudi Arabia lost quite the revenue when the oil prices went down, and the government needed a solution to bring in new revenue. Tourism is always a great idea. People come and spend money in your country, but if you make it easier for them to visit you, the number of tourists is more likely to multiply. Hence the electronic visa.
