Business Class Flights to Riyadh, Practical Information
All visitors to Saudi Arabia must obtain a visa. You must apply through visa agencies accredited by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia. Please visit the Embassy’s website for more information. Overstaying your visa may result in fines and deportation. Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry into Saudi Arabia. If you have previously travelled to Israel or were born in Israel, you may be refused entry. If you are a female traveller, your sponsor must be present to meet you upon arrival or your entry into the country may be delayed. Note that foreign women married to Saudi nationals must have permission from their husband to travel outside of Saudi Arabia.
Additionally, for our lady travellers, you might want to look up current advice about guidelines on public attire. Your hotel should be able to provide guidance to help you make the most of your visit. Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has been relaxing some of the strict gender segregation laws in the country. Since June 2018, women have been granted the right to drive. But, you may find that women are still expected to wear a long black robe—called an abaya—in public and some events and facilities are segregated by gender.
If you prefer very hot and dry weather, August, September, and October are the best months to visit Riyadh. Overall November is the most popular month to visit, with comfortable temperatures and little rain, followed by June and April.
