Jews and non-muslims in general are most welcome and can easily visit anywhere in all Saudi except Mecca and Medina. All Saudi major cities have diverse populations and residents from all over the world. Religion would not be an issue, Jeddah has a 3.5 Million residents 50% of whom are non Saudis.

I was under the impression that you could visit Saudi as long as you had an invitation from someone in the KSA. They had the same rules when I visited Syria, but a letter from a travel agent was considered good enough. Is this not the case with the KSA?

Did you pay the travel agent for that letter?

I was in Syria (more than a decade ago). I just got a tourist visa (for free) at the border crossing....

Maybe it depends on nationality.

^If it's any comfort, the update likely wouldn't show any progress in the immediate future anyway. Concrete needs a couple of weeks to cure after pouring.

Another page with lots of useless posts. This thread might even challenge the 1WTC thread in highest number of off-topic posts soon. Keep going! ...
