The fact that these 72 countries offer hassle free visa policy for Saudi travellers also adds to list of advantages these countries have over others in attracting more Saudi tourists.


Saudi Travelers Director General Haifa Al-Dosari said, “There are 72 countries which Saudis can go to without a prior visa from their consulates and embassies in Saudi Arabia; the visas for these countries are obtainable at the airports there.”


In Europe, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, France, German, Austria are the preferred destinations for Saudi tourists. In the east Saudis like to go to Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives and other countries, she pointed.


And the countries which are not considered for tourism include Dubai, Turkey and Egypt. The reason being, the Saudi citizens tend to travel in these countries all year round.

Expenditures of Saudi tourists have increased lately, registering at more than SR30 billion annually.
