The Italian Embassy in Saudi Arabia marked a significant milestone in bilateral relations with the inauguration of a new visa application center and exhibition space on the inaugural ‘Made in Italy Day,’ as reported by Wego. The initiative underscores Italy’s dedication to strengthening diplomatic and commercial bonds with Saudi Arabia as both nations seek to explore avenues for collaboration across various sectors.


Strategically located at Gate 2 of the Loclizer Mall in Riyadh, the newly established visa application center is set to revolutionize the visa process for Saudi citizens who wish to immerse themselves in Italy’s rich heritage and dynamic culture. The center, which is managed in partnership with leading technology service providers AlmaViva and VFS Global, is designed to enhance accessibility and streamline efficiency.

In a bid to extend its reach, similar services have been made available in Jeddah and Dammam, thereby ensuring a seamless and efficient visa application process for citizens across the country.
