Turkey has recently made a significant move in its tourism efforts by announcing a visa exemption for Saudi tourists. This policy is aimed at fostering stronger ties between Turkey and Saudi.

The exemption allows Saudi citizens to visit Turkey without the need for a pre-arranged visa, simplifying travel procedures and encouraging more visitors from the Gulf nation.


Starting from Thursday, 22nd February, Saudi Arabian citizens traveling to the UK have been experiencing a significant change. The UK introduced the ETA system, replacing the “EVW” visa.
