Tourism visa entry to KSA

I am an Australian national living in Dubai, UAE.

I would like to visit the KSA for tourism purposes.

I have heard that it is particularly difficult to get a tourism visa.

Can someone please confirm how I best get a visa.

Hi Kurt,

Indeed, it is difficult. In the first instance contact the Saudi Embassy in Dubai.

I've read a transit visa is much easier and allows a few days of sightseeing. You'd require a final destination.

I live in Dubai.

Transit sounds good but you couldn't just go to Riyadh for a couple of days & then return to Dubai, could you? Surely they'd see straight through that.
