Travelling to Saudi Arabia

Tips for visiting KSA

Saudi Arabia, also known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is one of the largest nations in the Arabian Peninsula.



Even though it isn’t the most popular tourist destination in the region, you can still think about exploring the country - that's because it offers some unique and unforgettable experiences. 


And the popularity of Saudi Arabia as a leisure destination is growing with time. Currently, around 15-20 million tourists are visiting the country every year.


Getting your eVisa to visit Saudi Arabia

If you have to obtain a visa to visit KSA, you'll need to apply for a tourist eVisa - and going through the eVisa process is the most convenient method available. 


Travel with a Saudi Arabia eVisa to make your journey stress-free and enjoyable. 




The Saudi Arabia eVisa, or electronic visa, is not offered by the embassy. Instead, you'll be applying for it through a web portal, which means you can submit your supporting documents and obtain your eVisa all online. You can get the job done within the shortest possible time as well.


When you have an eVisa, you won’t encounter any issues when entering and travelling across the country. Hence, we encourage everyone who plans to visit Saudi Arabia to obtain an eVisa.


Top 5 things to do in Saudi Arabia  

After obtaining your eVisa, you’ll need to research the best things to do in the country. These prominent experiences are a good start:


- Visit Riyadh's Kingdom Centre Tower 

Riyadh's Kingdom Centre Tower is one of the most iconic buildings in Saudi Arabia’s capital city, Riyadh. The Tower is a massive shopping mall as well as a residential complex. And in its observatory, you can get a bird's eye view of the surrounding area.



- Have an adventure in the Empty Quarter 

A journey to Saudi Arabia will not be complete without a trip to the desert – and the Empty Quarter. Here, you can participate in numerous activities, including 4x4 rides, camel safaris, and other experiences. The time you spend in the desert will never be boring.


- Explore the Coral Houses of Jeddah 

One of the most popular tourist sites in the city of Jeddah are the Coral Houses. As their name suggests, the houses are made out of coral blocks found in the sea, so their construction is a thing to behold.


Mada'in Saleh


- Visit the Lost City of Mada'in Saleh 

When you visit the Lost City of Mada'in Saleh, you’ll see what it’s like to literally live under a rock. The Lost City is one of the most ancient settlements that you'll find in the country, and better still, it’s not heavily visited, so you’ll feel like you have it almost to yourself.


- Visit Mecca  

Mecca is the main reason why Muslim tourists from around the world visit Saudi Arabia, and if you’re Islamic, it’s a place you simply must visit. Just keep in mind that non-Muslims aren’t allowed to enter the city of Mecca.
