On October 2, 2016, the Ministry of Labour in Saudi Arabia introduced a sharp increase in visa application fees. They will also introduce new fees in some cases. These increases will significantly raise costs for visitors and foreign nationals living and working in Saudi Arabia, and for their employers.
U.S. nationals are exempt from the fee hike, and will continue to be issued five-year, multiple-entry visit visas for a fee of SAR 500 (US$ 133), as per existing bilateral agreements.
