Saudi is Calling...

Saudi Arabia is waiting to welcome travelers and football fans from all around the world. Since Saudi Arabia is geographically so close to Qatar, travelers can actually stay in the Kingdom because it is not only cheaper but they can also round out their experience and have their own adventure too! You'll get to experience the true authentic Saudi culture, try the local food, and even attend one of the festivals that are happening during the same time as the World Cup! The Kingdom will be hosting a dynamic program of entertainment events including MDLBeast, Red Sea Film Festival, Riyadh Season, and Winter at Tantoura in AlUla, all of which are happening at the same time. Therefore, to improve air connectivity, Saudi will offer 40 shuttle flights per day from Jeddah and Riyadh to Doha; on days when the Saudi team is playing, the number may increase to 60 flights per day.

Here are the Terms and Conditions for the entire process:

1. Hayya Card holders will be permitted to enter the Kingdom 10 days before the start of the World Cup after obtaining an electronic visa through the Unified National Platform for Visas. The ministry will announce later on how to submit the visa application and the mechanism for obtaining the visa.

2. The holders of the entry visa can reside in the Kingdom for 60 days.

3. The holders of the visa are entitled to enter and leave the Kingdom several times during the validity period of the visa.
