Moreover, the tourist visa is open to each country, and each person applies for it. Thus there is now some news we have noticed on XpressRiyadh. Don’t worry I am gonna explain everything here.
There are some new terms and conditions everyone needs to know before applying for a Saudi Visit Visa or eVisa. This is to keep in mind that all the below terms and requirements are for eligible countries. Moreover, countries that are not eligible may need to apply for the visa at a consulate or Saudi Embassy.
Requirements of Passport Validity and Sponsor
First of all, you must be over 18 before applying for the visa and should not have a bad background record. If you are under 18 then it is important for someone should have to take responsibility and apply for your visa via the embassy.
Remember there is no need for a sponsor anymore upon applying for the visa. You can do this without any worries as mentioned in the XpressRiyadh (the link is provided above). Read the US, UK, and Schengen Visa Holders Can Now Visit KSA.

Overstay Fine, Religion, and Bank Statement
Saudi is about to be top-level strict against overstaying in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. There is a fine of SAR 100 for one day of overstaying. So what it means is that if you overstay for one month then simply it is 3000 SAR you will need to pay upon exiting the Kingdom.

Your Identification, Proof of Address, and Final Visa Checking
These are the last you need to know about before you leave this web page. Let me inform you that as always the Saudi embassy will verify your ID card and passport as well as proof of living address which should be valid. They have acquired utility bills, electricity bills, and similar documents while verifying your identity.
