Saudi Arabia Announces Major Change in Visa Rule For Indian Citizens; Know Details

Saudi Arabia made a significant announcement on Indian visa requirements on Friday. Indian people would no longer be required to present a police clearance certificate in order to apply for a visa to enter Saudi Arabia, according to reports. According to a statement issued by the Saudi Embassy, the choice was made as part of the two nations' attempts to strengthen their relations.

Saudi Arabia's decision to discontinue requiring police clearance for visas will automatically speed up the application process, making it easier for tour operators to operate their businesses, and decrease the amount of paperwork that visitors must deal with.
