Saudi Arabia to issue visas to FIFA World Cup ticket holders
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will grant visas to those holding tickets to the World Cup in neighbouring Qatar, reports AP.
The Saudi Foreign Ministry said in a statement said that those registered for Qatar’s Hayya fan card will be able to apply for multiple-entry visas 10 days before the tournament starts. Those granted visas will be able to stay for up to 60 days in Saudi Arabia.
The Hayya card is mandatory for ticket holders going to the World Cup in November and December. The Ministry added that pre-entry to Qatar was not required, though those coming will have to have medical insurance coverage.
