As of Last Friday (27 September 2019) British passport holders travelling to Saudi Arabia can now obtain a tourist e-visa online prior to departure. Alternatively, UK visitors can apply on arrival.
Applicants for both types of visa must be over 18 years of age (under 18s require an adult to act as guardian) and have a passport that is valid for at least six months at the time of entering Saudi Arabia. It is advised that the time taken to issue an e-visa is between five and thirty minutes in most cases.
British passport holders are not required to supply a return ticket or proof of booked accommodation in order to acquire a visa. Visa fees apply and are non-refundable. Overstay fees of SAR 100 per day are applicable if you remain in the country after visa expiry.
