US Embassy introduces interview waiver for Saudis 50 and older


Riyadh The U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia has introduced a new waiver program that allows Saudi citizens 50 and older to renew their visas without being questioned, Consul General in Riyadh Michael Garcia said Monday.

Garcia told Al-Ekhbariya TV that any Saudi citizen who wants to renew their “B1” or “B2” tourist visa does not have to go to the embassy or consulate, only if the expiry date does not exceed 12 months.

He said those wishing to renew such type of visas must complete an application and follow the instructions on the embassy website and send it by mail.
