    Transit Visa in Saudi Arabia needs to be applied in the consulate or embassy of KSA near you. Upon arrival is not possible.

    US Passport holder can get visa on arrival in 5 Gulf Arab Countries

    1. Bahrain 2 weeks visa upon arrival fee of 13 USD
    2. Qatar 1 Months visa upon arrival, fee of 27 USD
    3. Kuwait 1-3 months Visa upon arrival) UK passport holder get 3 months visa fee of 36 USD
    4. Oman 1 month visa upon arrival fee of 52 USD
    5. United Arab Emirates Free visa for 30 days second visa for 30 days 180 USD.




    Saudi Arabia if you don’t have visa in advance you will not be allowed entry inside the kingdom. It’s very difficult to get visa to the kingdom.

    If you have a family member you can get a visa
    If you are in Business you can a visa
    If visiting holy site i.e for Muslims only you can get a visa.


    Tourist visa few have been issued in the past – it’s very difficult – best to contact the Saudi Arabia Embassy in America all other types visa.

    Good Lucky

    Thank you all for your reply on VOA in Saudi Arabia - I was so busy before my trip, I could not reply you guys earlier but now I have so much time do not know what to do - I am in Riyadh Airport doing my 1st 10hrs. I am also surprised that there is no airport hotel here in such a big building - I got WiFi !!

    Well Riyadh airport not best airport in the world to transit in.

    Could you confirm is there any duty free at the airport? Is there transit area big or small?

    Did you have any issues with official at the airport?
