Welcome Message

Welcome to the website of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, where you’ll find news and information about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. You can also find practical content, such as contact information and the application process for visas. I also invite you to visit Arabia Now, our online news hub, to keep up-to-date on recent headlines about the Kingdom.
 
Saudi Arabia and the United States have a longstanding relationship dating back to the 1930s, when American businessmen first traveled to the Kingdom to help develop the country’s natural resources. In 1945 we witnessed the first meeting between a Saudi monarch and an American president when King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman met with President Franklin Roosevelt. Today, the Kingdom remains one of America’s closest allies and strongest economic partners in the Middle East.
 
Our mission at the embassy is to assist in strengthening, deepening and broadening this historical and strategic relationship. If you require additional assistance or resources, please let us know and we will try to help you.
