Posted in Saudi Arabia forum
My name is Alexa and I love to travel! I'm a 21 year old U.S. citizen. I am finishing my senior (last) year studying geology at the University of Southern California. I have my heart set on visiting Saudi Arabia.
I had a couple of questions regarding travel in your country. If anyone here is willing to help me, I would be very appreciative, but I understand if you are busy and do not have time!
First off, I read that Saudi Arabia was opening visas to tourists as of April 2018, but I'm having trouble finding where I can apply for this visitor's visa. I was wondering if anyone knew whether this had been discontinued or will open any time soon.
Secondly, a question on traveling manner. I normally travel alone. I'm always very respectful of the culture of places I go and would of course wear an abaya. I just wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be rude in itself to visit solo. I also wanted to check and make sure that I would be able to check myself into a hotel, etc.
This place of yours looks so beautiful. I hope to visit, if God wills it.
Thank you so much for your time,
