Saudi Arabia’s Typical Visa Term

Additionally, some visas have set validity times. Below are a few examples of various visas and their validity to help you better understand some of the typical visa validity periods:

Visa for Hajj and Umrah

The Hajj visa is good for 30 days. The Umrah visa, however, is only good for three months.

Visa for Tourists

It is good for 365 days. However, you are only permitted to stay for 90 days at a single location and make multiple entries. Your tourist visa, if you have one, will now be good for three months.

Visa for Family Visit

The 30-day validity period applies if you have a single-entry family visit visa. However, a multiple-entry visa would only be good for 90 days if you applied for one.

You can enter Saudi Arabia a maximum of four times with a multiple-entry visa, with each stay lasting 90 days.

Visa for Personal Visit

A 90-day, single-entry visa is available. 365 days are allotted for a multiple-entry personal visit visa.
