Saudi Arabia Business/Commercial Visa Requirements

These requirements are applicable for US Citizens applying at the New York Office

Please send TDS your current valid and signed passport. It must not expire within 6 months and must have at least two clear visa pages adjacent to each other. Foreign Embassies cannot issue a visa on a page not labeled as a Visa page. Amendment and Endorsement pages in the back of the passport cannot be used for issuance of a visa.
A visa cannot be stamped on a page even if only one Small Stamp is on the visa page. If you do not have any blank visa pages in your passport, TDS can assist you in applying for additional pages. If your passport expires within 6 months, you must renew your passport and then we will secure your visa with the new passport.

 

Please send 1 recent professional passport-type photograph.
Digital and non-passport photographs are not acceptable.

The Saudi Government requires an online registration form (Enjaz) to be completed as part of all visa applications. All visa fees must be paid at the time Enjaz is completed. TDS will process the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs Enjaz Registration Form on your behalf once we receive your application form and supporting documents. No additional documentation or steps by you are required for this service when using Traveldocs. A $40 processing fee has been added to the consular fee for this service. Traveldocs cannot use an Enjaz form provided by the applicant.

 

 

Please Send One Completed and Signed Application Form.

 

The Saudi Arabia business visa is usually issued for a single or multiple entries within 90-1800 days (5 years), for a period of stay not exceeding 30-90 days. (The validity and length of stay is generally based on the invitation letter from the host company in Saudi).

Your application will be hand carried to the Embassy, and is usually processed in 5-7 business days.

Processing times are business days. Due to new embassy policies the first day begins the day after your package is received by TDS. Please keep this in mind when determining the overall process time.
