Saudi Arabia Tour 2020 | The Land of Midian with Tom & JoAnn Doyle
Saudi Arabia Tour Dates: February 19 – 26, 2020
Important for Acceptance into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia:
First and foremost: if you have a current passport and have Israeli stamps, you will need to apply for a second passport. It is very easy to do. The passport that you will present cannot have any Israeli arrival/departure stamps in it. Please allow between 3-weeks and 5-weeks to obtain the second passport. It can be obtained faster if you pay expedited fees. Do not wait to book your trip until your second passport arrives. We cannot secure your visa until approximately 60 days prior to our departure so we have time. If you need to obtain a second passport to travel to Saudi Arabia, they will require that you send your existing passport with your application, be sure to send us a copy before you mail it. It is a very easy process. We will be asking you for a passport photo and a copy of your old passport be mailed to us prior to processing your visa. You can send that to us now or later.
Dress is modest. Women do not need to cover their heads but they should wear abayas at all times (which will be provided by us with your documents). Be advised that you will be fingerprinted and undergo a retinal scan upon arrival in the country. Also be aware, most places in the Kingdom shut down between noon and 3pm every day, as well as several other times during prayers. Often the group will be returned to the hotel for some free time during these periods. In addition, sometimes sites can be closed for unforeseen reasons and authorities can also deny visitation of certain sites without prior notice. The country is undergoing a remarkable restoration and we cannot predict if a site will be in the middle of a construction project. All of their infrastructure is currently under development.
