The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has stated that it will provide visas to people who have tickets to the World Cup taking place in neighboring Qatar. Ten days before the commencement of the event, those who have registered for Qatar’s Hayya fan card will be eligible to apply for multiple-entry visas, according to a statement from the Saudi Foreign Ministry late on Wednesday.
Those who receive visas may remain in Saudi Arabia for up to 60 days. The ministry noted that although prior entrance into Qatar was not necessary, visitors were still required to have health insurance.
The visa application website for Saudi Arabia is visa.visitsaudi.com. Moreover, neighboring nations are making preparations for the World Cup in case visitors choose to stay elsewhere. Hotels in Dubai, a city-state in the United Arab Emirates, reported that some fans have already made reservations and want to fly to games.
