In a speech honoring the 300th anniversary of Saudi Arabia’s beginning, Aldabbagh expressed his joy at the prospect of the kingdom’s third participation in SATTE. Highlighting the significant 50% increase in Indian visitors to Saudi Arabia last year, he stressed India as a key market and outlined strategies to accomplish the 2030 objective.

– “We are absolutely over the moon to be at SATTE,” Aldabbagh told to Indian Media ANI. We are proud to be returning for our third year to this illustrious trade event in South Asia. As we commemorate the Saudi founding day, this is a significant day.

– A key market for Saudi-Arabia is India, according to Aldabbagh, when asked about the significance of the Indian market in the kingdom. We had 1.5 million Indian tourists last year, a tremendous 50% increase from the previous year. One of our long-term goals for the year 2030 is to increase the number of Indian tourists visiting Saudi Arabia by seven million.

– When asked about the ease of obtaining a Saudi visa, Aldabbagh said, “Recognizing India’s importance, we have streamlined entry to Saudi”. We want to continue our expansion this year, and now have ten VFS offices in India. As part of our new stopover program, passengers flying with Saudi Airlines or flynas (a private Saudi low-cost airline) can enjoy a free visa for up to 96 hours. Also, e-Visa and visa on arrival are options for those Indians with US, UK, or Schengen visas. Most Viewed : Saudi Arabia unveils Special Talent Premium Residency

– The warm and amicable relations between the Kingdom and India are a reflection of the long history of economic and cultural exchange between the two countries.

– Members of the travel, tourism, and hospitality industries, as well as NTOs and STOs, from all over the world can find a common ground at SATTE, which stands for South Asia’s Travel and Tourism Exchange.
