      What is the proceedure of visiting other GCC countries e.g. UAE, Bahrain, Oman etc. from Saudi? Does this require a formal visa for entry? Or is it just an unrestricted entry? Are the visa provided on arrival basis while travelling from saudi to these countries?

    • Against Saudi laws?

      by bernadettepantaleon Online Now Jul 20, 2008 at 7:17 AM

      I would like to ask how true that Muttawa or Saudi police catch single men and women who speak to each other or be together as prohibited by Saudi laws. Does this apply to foreign nationals, too? I have learned of men & women (both expats) meet in malls and are able to go together in public. Women are said to be able to go into the Bachelor's housing as long as the man's companion will allow the woman's entry. Some women even wear mens clothing to be able to walk into mens' housing. How then can you say that Saudi laws still prevail for the locals as well as expats?
