Business visa

As I will go to the KSA for business reasons, I've got a few questions:

Will the business visa have a specified date of entry and exit?
Does it have a specified point of entry and exit?

I would love to arrive a few days earlier into another city just to visit on my own in order to see a bit more of the country, and then go to my business destination on a domestic flight.

Thank you for your help!

Transiting KSA

I am a 62 year old male non Muslim. I am trying to plan a trip from London to Dubai on my motorcycle. My outline route is thru Europe to Greece or Turkey cross the Mediterranean to Egypt then to Saudi either direct or via Jordan then on to UAE. Any advice on crossing the Med and obtaining visas for the remainder of the journey would be most helpful.

Hi

I'd really like to check out the Arabian peninsula. I spent a day in Jeddah years ago on the way to Sudan and would like to explore Saudi Arabia a little more.

I'm not Muslim, but I'm happy to go through whatever rituals are deemed necessary to get myself declared as one.

Anyone know how easy it is to get a Hajj visa (or, given the crowds at that time, perhaps an Umrah visa)? Does a cleric or someone have to certify your Muslim-ness?

If you're offended by my cavalier approach to…

Hi all. I will be spending a few days in Bahrain, is there any chance I could travel in or out on a transit visa and could that be obtained at the border? Maybe to/from Qatar?

Saudi transit

I am American thinking to buy airline ticket with less than 5 hour transit in Saudi Arabia on my way to China.
A transit visa or another special document would not be needed since I will not leave the airport?
As always, many thanks in advance.

Hi guys,

I am planning on cycling from London to Beijing after i finish university in England in September 2016. I am planning my route at the moment and have at the moment decided to go via Saudi Arabia.

From what i have read a transit visa seems the only way to do it, but have also read that these are hard to come by. Could anyone help me out? is the transit visa the only option and is plausible?

Many thanks everybody :)

does anyone know the exact location of above mentioned flea market in riyadh?

i have googled it and according to a news article in the saudi gazette the market was moved from one side of riyadh to the other. but as things are here, even the newspapers are unreliable with the information they publish.

people i know and who live here do not know for sure where it is now either (and have nothing positive to say about the market anyway).

Right, I'm currently living in Qatar, which might give me somewhat of an opportunity of visiting Saudi by means of a transit visa. Are there any other options, like a stopover in Saudi of a certain length, flying with Saudia?

With regards to the transit visa, can someone explain to me the finer details? I suppose, being a woman my husband and me are not allowed to accompany friends on such a transit trip in their car. Can someone confirm this? Or is this only true if I was to accompany my…

Just starting to research how to prepare for pilgrimage to Mecca from the U.S. Any tips, advice, etc. is very much appreciated. For example: Do we have to go with a tour group? Is there a special visa for hajj? What is required to get in to visit the holy site? Is there a good blog or site you'd recommend I check out for more details? Thank you, in advance.
