The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has expanded the coverage of the ‘Investor Visitor’ e-visa service, making it available to individuals from all countries worldwide.

The ‘Investor Visitor’ offers multiple entries and remains valid for up to one year. Some applicants may even receive immediate access, enabling them to explore investment opportunities directly within the Kingdom.

Launched in June, Saudi Arabia’s e-visa service allows international investors to apply for visas without having to visit a Saudi embassy for biometric data collection. This digital platform manages the entire application process and issues the authorization electronically.

Recent expansions of the e-visa service have included those with valid tourist or business visas from the United States, the United Kingdom, or Schengen countries, as well as individuals with permanent residency in the US, UK, or EU countries. Additionally, individuals who hold valid residency for at least three months in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and entities licensed by the Ministry of Investment for three immediate visas per year can also benefit from this online visa service.
