Mountain Climbing

Tabuk is a region of varied landscapes, and its mountainous areas provide endless opportunities for exploration. Jabal Al-Lawz is, perhaps, the most prominent peak (at 2580m above sea level). Campers frequent the eastern mountainside during warm seasons; the mountain stands snow-covered in winter.

Cultural Norms

When strolling and exploring the city please make sure you wear the appropriate attire. Women should be covered from neck to ankle and in certain areas scarves are used to cover the face and head.

Saudi Arabia eVisa

Saudi Arabia introduced a new eVisa system in October 2019, dramatically simplifying visa applications for citizens of multiple world countries, including the USA, Canada, China, Japan, Australia, and much of Europe. The new multiple-entry visa will be processed within record time (as quickly as 30 minutes), issued for one year, and will allow visitors to stay in the country for up to 90 days during its validity period. This marks a watershed moment in the country’s history, as Saudi Arabia has historically been off limits to non-Muslim tourists, with visas notoriously difficult to secure. Citizens of countries not covered by the eVisa program will still need to turn to their nearest consulate to obtain a visa.
