The Hajj Visa is a visitor visa available for Muslim travelers who wish to make a religious pilgrimage to Mecca. Each applicant for a Hajj visa must apply through a licensed Saudi travel agency. The agency must present the Consulate with copies of “Accommodation Contacts” and a letter from the Ministry of Hajj in Saudi Arabia confirming that the travel agency has duly completed all requirements to qualify to assist pilgrims. The applicant must have a passport with a validity of at least six (6) months and acceptable both for entry to Saudi Arabia and entry to the next destination. The passport should have at least two empty visa pages adjacent to each other. While sending documents to the embassy by mail, include a prepaid return label and envelope (from FedEx, UPS or U.S. Postal Service only) with the return address label filled out completely. All women are required to travel for Hajj with a Mahram. Proof of kinship must be submitted with the application form. Women over the age of forty-five (45) may travel without a Mahram with an organized group. They must, however,  submit a no-objection letter from the husband, son or brother authorizing her to travel for Hajj with the named group. This letter should be notarized.

You will need a work visa if you intend to take up paid employment in Saudi Arabia. The work visa is sponsored by an employer. This can be a Saudi company, a Saudi citizen or a foreign entity appropriately licensed to do business in Saudi Arabia. The employer must first register with the Ministry of Interior who will open an “immigration file”. This file will contain details of all expatriate employees with that employer. The sponsoring employer must be registered in Saudi Arabia and hold a valid commercial license. The employer may be asked to submit a variety of documents listed below. The employer will likely be asked to show a commitment to “Saudization” which is to prove that there are no Saudi citizens available to fill the position, and that the employer is taking steps to employ Saudi citizens where possible. The actual Work Visa is issued by the relevant Saudi embassy under the instruction of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. At this point the employee will have to apply at the relevant Saudi Arabian embassy. The employee must submit an application form and the documents outlined above to the embassy. Processing times vary by embassy but generally 1 - 3 weeks.
