Do You Know #WhereInTheWorld This Is?
The countdown is on.
In less than 12 days, Saudi Arabia will launch its new e-tourist visa to encourage tourism to the kingdom – and it's celebrating by running a stunning video campaign across various social media platforms.
In celebration of the news e-visas (and other tourism projects) the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad Bin Salman al Saud shared a stunning video featuring underwater shots of colorful marine life, lush valleys and beautiful beaches the Kingdom has to offer travelers on his Twitter account a few days ago.
The social media campaign, which is currently trending on Twitter, is cleverly being referred to by its hashtag: #WhereInTheWorld.
It celebrates the beauty Saudi Arabia has to offer tourists and show exactly why holiday-makers should consider Saudi as a vacation destination within the coming months (and beyond.)
In regards to the new e-visas, the Kingdom is working to streamline the process of obtaining entry permits by allowing citizens of over 50 countries to obtain a tourist visa either online or on arrival later this month.
According to Arabian Business ". . . the plans were first reported by Saudi newspaper Okaz, which said the visas would be issued online or on arrival for a fee of SR440 ($117) starting September 27, citing people it didn’t identify."
