Government Visit Visa

Does anyone know if you can apply via EnjazIT for a government visit visa from Beijing? Since Im currently living in China my invitation requires me to apply thru the Beijing Embassy but it's not listed as an option on the Saudi Missions list on the visa application site. (It appeared on one occasion but since then it has not been in any version in English or Arabic I have been able to find).

Travelling on a Tandem for 2 weeks in KSA

We usually travel freely around countries with a tandem bicycle that fits in a suitcase (bikefriday.com Traveller Q for those who are curious). We have 2 weeks in KSA in mid-February 2015 and would like to travel this way as well.
My concerns are: my girlfriend rides in the back of the tandem, and we often stay with locals, or ask to camp on their property, so just a few days around arrival and departure are planned and booked, the rest is decided as we go.

The following rough itinerary is what…

Finding hotels in KSA for a couple that is not married

I will be travelling for 2 weeks to KSA in Feb 2015 on my way back from SE Asia to Europe. I have read that it will be difficult to find hotels that accept non-married couples. Has anyone had any experience with this in the last 6 months or so? We will be travelling around Jeddah.

Jeddah

Hi everybody!

I am going to Jeddah to attend a trade show and will be there 5 days. I have found some info about sights to visit on this forum, thanks very much but would like to know whether there are beaches for women in Jeddah? or should I better look for a hotel with swimming pool for women? We are two females travelling together, would it be a problem to move around?

Thanks very much for your help and have a great weekend!!!

Transit visa for 18+ hour stopover?

Does anyone have any recent news about whether US citizens can get a transit visa if they have a long (18-72 hour) stopover in Saudi Arabia? I know of some Americans who have been able to do this over the last few years, but I have heard that the visas are no longer issued as freely.

I am interested in "forcing" an 18+ hour stopover so that I can see Jeddah or Riyadh for a day, if it is feasible to get a transit visa.

Riyadh

There aren't many posts here about Saudi Arabia (for fairly obvious reasons) but i found this forum helpful when I planned my trip a while back.

I wanted to share to articles that cover some of the off-the-beaten track sights of Riyadh. enjoy!
