What do I need to get a visa to Saudi Arabia?

by Phil
(Chicago, IL)

Question: We are a software company trying to open our market in the Middle East. Our local agent requested and secured a Visa approval from Saudi Aramco. They sent us a Visa Approval number (on the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs website) to submit for a visa. If we have this number/form what else do we need to send you to get a Visa from the New York consulate?

Answer: I assume from the information above that you need to obtain a business visa to Saudi Arabia. That being the case, the list of requirements include:

1. Current, valid passport;
2. Two passport style photos (2x2 inches)
3. Evidence of travel to Saudi Arabia (computer-generated itinerary)
4. Official invitation
5. Business cover letter
6. Completed business visa application
7. Payment of fee
