  • Published by Ozgur Tore

saudi arabia skyscrapperSaudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTNH) announced that Saudi Arabia will allow women older than 25 to visit the country without a male guardian as part of a new policy to promote tourism in the kingdom. However, they should be a part of a tourist group.

The regulations state that women under 25 years of age must be accompanied by family members while women above 25 years of age must be a part of a tourist group under a certified tourism agency in order to be granted tourist visas.

Tourism agency organizing the visit must be licensed by the pertinent authority of its country.

The National Tourism Agency or the tour organizer from the Kingdom must be licensed by the SCTNH.

Commenting on the initiative, Director General of the commission's licensing department, Omar Al-Mubarak, said, "The tourist visa will be a single-entry visa valid for a maximum of 30 days. This visa is added to those currently available in the Kingdom. It is independent of work, visit, Hajj and Umrah visas."
