GCC country announces free entry for these visas
The directive applies to tourist and business visa holders irrespective of nationality.
The country has directed national air carriers to allow entry for these visas.
Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has announced that its national air carriers will now allow entry into the Kingdom for those who hold UK, US and Schengen visas.
According to the Saudi Gazette, the directive applies to tourist and business visa holders irrespective of nationality, as long as they fulfil two conditions.
The visa must be valid for use in Saudi Arabia from the time of entry to exit. The visa holder's passport must also be stamped with an entry visa at least once from the country that granted it.
GACA had earlier issued a notice in December last year instructing national air carriers to receive holders of Schengen and American visas if they want to visit the Kingdom at any time, as long as the conditions set by the authority are met.
Additionally, GACA also confirmed the continuation of the trial period at the new Arar Airport. The first Saudi Arabian Airlines flights to and from Riyadh operated successfully from the new terminal on Wednesday.
