Do Saudi Arabian Citizens Need a Visa for India?

Yes, all Saudi Arabian nationals who travel to India must apply for a visa before leaving the country. Depending on the length or purpose of their stay, they may need to apply for a visa online or at an Indian embassy or consulate.

Saudi Arabian citizens can apply for various types of Indian visas, including Indian tourist visas, business visas, Ayush visas, medical visas, and conference visas. The type of visa you need depends on the purpose of your visit.

To apply for an Indian e-Visa for Saudi Arabian citizens, you will need the following documents:

  • A valid Saudi passport with at least six months of validity left.
  • A digital copy of your passport photo (it must be in color with a white backdrop).
  • A valid email address.
  • Use a credit or debit card to pay the visa fees.

Optional Documents:

  • A copy of your travel itinerary (e.g., airline tickets, hotel reservations).
  • A copy of your proof of lodging (such as a hotel or Airbnb reservation).
  • A copy of your proof of funds (such as a bank or credit card statement).

Please keep in mind that the Indian government reserves the right to seek further documents if necessary.

Once granted, applicants must print a copy of the eVisa and show it, together with their passport, before entering India.
