Business Visas

Business visas are available for the owners, chairpersons or directors of companies and corporations who wish to travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia without the need for a letter of invitation from a company in Saudi Arabia. Applicants are required to submit proof of their business credentials.

Applicants must submit:

  1. An original letter of introduction from the British company at which the applicant is employed or the owner. This letter must be stamped by the British Chamber of Commerce. A template of an introduction letter is available here.

Business visa applicants may also apply for their spouses and children under the age of 18 years old to accompany them. Such applications must be made under an Escort Visa.

Please see the General Guidelines for information on how to apply for all visas.
