How to get the Saudi Arabia eVisa or visa waiver as a UK citizen
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

In recent years, Saudi Arabia has opened its doors to international travelers like never before, offering a more convenient and accessible way for visitors to explore its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and thriving modern cities.

Among the significant developments in Saudi Arabia's tourism sector is the implementation of the Saudi Arabia Tourist Visa system. But that’s not all. Recently, the Saudi government has also introduced a Saudi Visa Waiver for UK citizens.

In this guide, we will explore the differences and help you decide which document you need for your trip.

Fill me in

Do UK citizens require the Saudi Arabia eVisa or Visa Waiver?

Which visa or document you need to visit Saudi Arabia, depends on your travel purpose and how long you’d like to stay.

Saudi Arabia's entry options: Differences between the eVisa vs Visa Waiver

Deciding between the Tourist eVisa and the Visa Waiver is key when planning your journey to Saudi Arabia. Here’s a concise breakdown to ease your decision:

  • Saudi Arabia Visa Waiver: A visa waiver isn’t an actual visa. It’s a pre-travel check, confirming your identity before you enter Saudi Arabia. The application process typically requires less documentation and costs much less than the eVisa.

It offers a single entry into Saudi Arabia, with a maximum stay of 180 days. Its simplicity, fewer requirements, and lower cost make it an attractive option for UK citizens.

  • Saudi Arabia Tourist eVisa: For those wishing to explore Saudi Arabia through multiple visits, the eVisa is the better option. Despite its higher price tag, the eVisa offers the convenience of multiple entries, with a maximum stay of 90 days in a year.

The application process typically takes a bit more time and documentation.

How to get the Saudi Arabia Tourist eVisa or Visa Waiver from the United Kingdom

Simplifying the process of getting a Saudi Arabia eVisa or visa waiver from the UK is our specialty. Just follow these three simple steps:

  • Step 1: Choose your required travel document and fill out your personal and travel information on our user-friendly website or convenient iVisa app.

  • Step 2: Select your preferred processing time and pay the fees using a debit or credit card, Venmo, or PayPal.

  • Step 3: Provide the remaining required information and upload your supporting documents. Submit your application.

Once this is done, all that remains is to wait for the visa decision.

Can I use the Saudi Arabia Air Transit Visa to visit the country?

If you’re just transferring flights and have some time to spare, another option to consider is the Saudi Arabia Air Transit Visa.

This visa is intended for travelers transiting through Saudi Arabia en route to another destination and who plan to leave the airport or change airports for their connecting flight.

This visa is available to travelers of most nationalities who have a confirmed onward flight to a third country. It allows a stay of up to 96 hours after arrival in Saudi Arabia.
