    If your passport does not meet these requirements, please contact A Briggs at 800-806-0581 for further details.

You may not wear eyeglasses or headwear except for religious purposes. Your photo should not be affixed to your application and the photograph may not display evidence of adhesive tape or staples.

    • Include answers for all fields

    • Be signed

  5. Invitation Letter

    You must provide an official invitation letter issued by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A Briggs can assist you in obtaining this invitation. You must complete the Business Invitation Request Form found in this kit. 


    If your sponsoring organization in Saudi Arabia is obtaining the invitation on your behalf, please verify the following:

    • The invitation must be addressed to the Saudi Arabian consulate in Washington DC. If the city listed is different, your visa must be processed in that city and the requirements may vary. In this instance, A Briggs can assist you, but you must contact us for further instructions.
    • The invitation must be signed and stamped by the Saudi Arabian Foreign Ministry or your sponsoring organization.

  6. A Briggs Order Form

    Provide the A Briggs Order Form included in this kit.

    An online registration with the Saudi Arabian consulate, an Enjaz, must be completed in addition to your visa application form. A Briggs will complete this registration on your behalf once we receive your application form and supporting documents; we cannot use an Enjaz provided by applicants.  A $50.00 service fee and an additional business processing day apply.

    You must sign and date the Enjaz Registration Release Form found in this kit. The Enjaz Registration Release Form mentions an iris scan and fingerprint submission process. These will be taken upon entry into Saudi Arabia. You are not required to provide them as part of your visa application.

In some cases, the consulate may request additional documentation in order to process your visa application.
