In the past few years, oil prices have come down, which is why Saudi Arabia needs to find ways to bring more revenue from other sources. Tourism is a great way to do that, which is why the kingdom’s government has decided to enhance tourism with the release of electronic visas. In the next few weeks, the document will go live, but it will only be available to the citizens of 35 countries.
Singapore is on that list, which means that a Saudi Arabia eVisa for Singaporeans will be available online. Consequently, Singaporeans will no longer be required to go to a Saudi Arabia diplomatic mission to get their visas. Instead, they will be able to get it online.
