What is a Saudi


The Saudi Arabia e-Visa is an electronic travel authorisation that allows citizens from eligible countries, Muslim or non-Muslims alike, to enter and visit Saudi Arabia for a short-term stay.

The tourist e-Visa permits Muslims to travel across Saudi Arabia, including performing Umrah in Makkah and visiting the Mosque of the Prophet (ﷺ) in Madinah for at least seven days. Non-Muslims, on the other hand, can use the e-Visa to visit anywhere in Saudi Arabia excluding Makkah and Madinah.

In addition to the visa, travel insurance is also necessary. It is advisable to obtain travel insurance that covers medical emergencies (including Covid-19), trip cancellations, lost or stolen luggage, and other travel-related incidents when performing Umrah. This helps ensure that you have financial protection in case of any unexpected events during your trip to Saudi Arabia. 

When choosing a travel insurance policy, be sure to read the fine print and ensure that it covers all the risks associated with your trip, including those specific to performing Umrah, such as illness or injury while performing the rituals. It is always a good idea to compare different insurance options and choose one that best fits your needs and budget.



For non-muslims: The Saudi Arabia Tourist e-Visa is granted for tourism purposes ONLY. Visitors are forbidden from visiting the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.

For muslims: Traveling for Umrah using a tourist e-Visa is only permissible for pilgrims outside of the Hajj season.
