Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry has launched a free stopover/transit visa for visitors arriving by air. It is free and is valid for four days.
The two most important benefits, in my opinion, are that it will help to improve international relations and cultural exchange. It is a way for visitors to see Saudi Arabia and meet Saudis, to know us for who we are, and understand our religion and culture as we practice them in our daily lives.
In addition, it will create job opportunities. Past generations, especially women, suffered from lack of opportunities. There were only limited job categories open for women. The coming generations have choices.
