Saudi Arabia to open new visa service centre in Singapore, located at Anson Road

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be opening a new visa service centre in Singapore on Friday for those applying for entry visas into the kingdom.

The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Singapore said in a press statement that the new centre will be able to register visa applicants' fingerprints and face photographs to reduce waiting times at Saudi Arabia's checkpoints, especially for Haj and Umrah pilgrims.

Visa applications will be accepted from Monday at the centre located at Anson House at 72 Anson Road in the Central Business District.

"One of the main functions of the new centre will be to... obtain a high level service for visa applications," said the embassy in its statement.
