These visas are very restrictive, your travel agent will have to get this for you.

Business visas to Saudi Arabia have specific requirements. A letter from the inviting company must be procured. This letter will have the approval of the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Your inviting company, will know how to get this. The invitation will be in Arabic and addressed to one of the consulates in the U.S., which will dictate where we have to process your visa request. You will also need to complete an application and a Declarations Form. Both of these can be found on our ItsEasy website.

Your airline will check that you meet all requirements i.e. passport validity, valid visa upon check-in. When you arrive in Saudi Arabia and go through immigration they will check your documents again before allowing you to enter their country.

We will also be able to assist non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S., who need visas to Saudi Arabia.
