Visa Requirements for Saudi Arabia

All foreign non GCC nationals will require a visa to enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. BME Global can offer all fully registered conference delegates and exhibitors assistance with obtaining visa pre-approvals.

BME Global is unable to assist with obtaining visa pre-approvals for exhibition visitors.

To apply for a visa pre-approval number, please contact Jarvis on the details below for a copy of the application form. Once completed, you will then need to return it with the following

1) A clear scan of your passport photo page

2) Your conference confirmation number (for conference delegates) or exhibiting company name and stand number (for exhibitors)

*If you are not a national in the country where you will be applying for your Saudi visa, you must also enclose a scanned copy of your residence permit in that country.

*Once your application is submitted, please be aware it can take around 3 weeks before you obtain your pre approval number/invitation letter.

For information on the exact application requirements, please contact your local Saudi Arabian Consulate directly as these differ from Consulate to Consulate.

Please Note:

Once visa pre-approvals or invitation letters are issued, it is the sole responsibility of the applicant to take care of his/her visa application requirements at their local Saudi Consulate and allow sufficient time for the application procedure. BME Global will not take any responsibility if the entry visa to Saudi Arabia is not granted. The acceptance and/or the rejection of this visa request is under the authorities of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia and/or your local Saudi Consulate. Please contact your local Saudi Consulate as soon as possible for visa requirements and application procedure. Visa pre-approval requests will be sent out by BME Global upon receipt of full payment of your participation fees.
