Saudi Arabia has exacting standards for issuing travel visas, including the required Enjaz, which is their e-Visa.  Whether you are traveling to Saudi Arabia as a tourist or on business, you will require a visa for entry. The current maximum stay is 30 days.

Before traveling to Saudi Arabia, visitors need to be aware Saudi Arabia does allow photography and filming in public areas so long as it does not invade the privacy of others.

Taking photographs in 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. Always look for signs prohibiting photography before taking your camera out.

Travelers to Saudi Arabia may not carry alcohol, firearms, pork products, religious items, or pornographic materials. Prescription drugs should be carried in their original labeled containers.

Royal palaces are considered private property and should not be photographed. If you’re in doubt if an area can be photographed, don’t.
