Saudi Arabia Business Visa (Non-UK National)

If you plan to travel to Saudi Arabia on a commercial, business or work visit, you will need either a valid 'Saudi Commercial Visa' or 'Saudi Work Visit Visa'. In order to apply for either, the Saudi Arabian institution or company inviting you must get you a visa authorisation invitation letter from the Saudi Foreign Ministry. Your role in the company determines whether you get a commercial visa or a work visit visa. If you hold an administrative role (e.g. manager or director etc.) and wish to go to Saudi for a business meeting, please ask your sponsor in Saudi Arabia to apply for a 'Commercial Visa'. Professionals such as engineers, teachers and doctors who plan to work in Saudi Arabia temporarily for a short-period of time (e.g. for training, work supervision, repair etc.), should request their Saudi sponsor to apply for a work visit visa. In either case, the application process, requirements and prices for either visa are exactly the same and can be followed and purchased on this page. Therefore, you will find all the relevant steps below for both types of visas!
