Saudi Arabia Eases Tourist Visa Requirements for Pakistani Travelers

Saudi Arabia, one of the top international destinations for Pakistani travelers, has announced a significant easing of its tourist visa requirements. With immediate effect, applicants can now submit a bank statement showing a minimum monthly credit amount of USD 750 or its equivalent. This move is expected to further boost the number of Pakistani tourists visiting Saudi Arabia, which saw a 43% increase in arrivals in 2023 compared to the previous year.

Growing Tourism and Facilitated Visa Process

Saudi Arabia aims to welcome 2.7 million Pakistani visitors in 2024. To accommodate this growing demand, Saudi Arabia has made it easier for Pakistani travelers to obtain visas before travel through one of six Tasheer offices established across Pakistan. These offices are located in Peshawar, Quetta, Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, and Multan.

Transit Visa and Visa on Arrival

In addition to the relaxed visa requirements, Saudi Arabia has introduced a transit visa for travelers arriving via Saudia and Flynas airlines. This visa allows travelers to transit and explore Saudi Arabia for up to 96 hours. Moreover, travelers holding a valid and used UK, US, or Schengen visa can avail of a visa on arrival, further simplifying the travel process.

One-Year Multiple Entry Visa

In the past year, Saudi Arabia introduced a one-year multiple entry visa specifically for Pakistani travelers. This visa is intended for those coming for personal visits such as attending weddings or functions or visiting friends and family. Holders of this visa can enjoy multiple visits to Saudi Arabia within a 12-month period, allowing them to explore the country’s vibrant cities, cultural richness, and natural wonders all year round.

Pakistani travelers with the one-year multiple entry visa can also perform Umrah, highlighting Saudi Arabia’s commitment to fostering spiritual journeys and cultural exchanges.
