Your invitation to Saudi Arabia is provided by your sponsor – this is normally your employer.
Your sponsor will also arrange your Iqama (residency permit).
See entry requirements for Saudi Arabia or contact the Saudi embassy in London.
A medical report is required for work and residency permits, and permits won’t be granted to anyone testing positive for HIV/AIDS.
For more information, contact the Embassy of Saudi Arabia. You should use the Visa Validity Service to check your permitted length of stay by entering your passport number and Saudi visa number – there are heavy fines and sometimes prison sentences if you overstay your visa.
Men can drive in Saudi Arabia for up to 3 months using a full valid British licence.
After 3 months, you’ll need a Saudi driving licence – your sponsor can help you with this.
