The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia recently made headlines when it announced, for the first time in history, it will offer tourist visas to travelers wishing to visit this mysterious nation. To date the country has only been accessible to a small percentage of the outside world — mainly individuals and their families who were stationed there for work or military purposes and Muslims with a Hajj visa who wished to visit for religious reasons.

 

This new policy will finally let visitors from select countries around the world apply for a tourist visa. good for 90-day periods and valid for 360 days from the date of issue. The countries whose citizens are allowed to apply include all European nations, the United States, Australia, South Africa, South Korea, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Japan.

 

The visa costs approximately $80, not counting travel insurance, and is easy to obtain by going online (https://www.saudiarabiavisa.com/saudi-tourist-visa/) and filling out a form with personal and security information. Once approved, visas are issued via email.

 

The country, only just entering the age of global tourism, hopes to open up a new form of revenue for the country’s economy with this giant leap forward. As tourists begin exploring the country the secret will get out and soon it will have its own Instagram-worthy tourist sites that make their way onto bucket lists.

Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
