Saudi Arabia Soften its Visa Regulation

  • In order to grow its tourism industry, Saudi Arabia will now allow unmarried couples to rent a hotel room. Earlier, a couple had to provide proof of relationship at the time of check-in to a hotel. However, now all they have to show is their ID. The law is applicable not only to unmarried couples but also bachelorettes. The new visa regulation also says that female travellers are not required to fully cover up but modest dressing is essential. The reason behind this change is seen as redeveloping Saudi's image in the eyes of foreign tourists and investors.
