Saudi Arabia Formula e Visa

With the launch of Formula e Racing in Saudi Arabia there is an opportunity to visit Saudi Arabia relatively easy and cheap. For about $270 I have an eVisa good for 30 days plus a Grandstand ticket to the racing event.

If you're interested in visiting Saudi Arabia this is a chance you might not want to miss.

Thanks, but I'm not so much interested in visiting Saudi Arabia these days, not to mention I have zero interest in Formula e racing.

I thought that race might be canceled, but looks like it is going on . . I noticed that the terms of the visa say "allows for full entrance to the event and free mobility within specific Saudi territories." ( Underline mine)

I suspect that limits sightseeing to ancient city of Ad Diriyah (where the race is to take place) and to Riyadh?

The holy cities of Makkah and Madinah apparently remain off-limits to non-Muslim travelers.

I've only been to Riyadh. . Always wante to see Makkah (Mecca) but I suppose that will have to wait for further opening!

The race would be interesting, but I have no desire to visit Saudi.
I hope you have an enjoyable time though.

Nah. Lived there for three years. That was plenty.

Glad I made the trip a worthwhile outing.
