Saudi Arabia has a few special requirements for travelers to know. It is a common belief that travelers cannot take photographs in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia does allow photography and filming in public areas so long as it does not invade the privacy of others. Sensitive facilities, such as airports, seaports, oil and petrochemical facilities, and military bases that do not wish to be photographed are obliged to place visible signs indicating so. Royal palaces are considered private property and should not be photographed. If you’re in doubt if an area can be photographed, don’t. There is a great article Petapixel covering the photography laws in detail, Street Photography in Saudi Arabia.
