The core has a menacing, almost medieval fortress like look to it.

Is not like what you think
Simply they will advice to contact the Developer to send you an invitation to visit the site.
otherwise you could apply for a business trip visa through SAGIA

any way, if you have any bright idea I would be more than happy to be a business partner

It`s actually more difficult. I got a respond from the embassy. They said that the tower is in planning stage and construction will start in 2018 and than i should contact them again

BTW. Thanks for your help.

That or maybe they planning to change something with the visas when the tower is completed. Tourism is actually good for the economy. Besides the haj pilgrims they could add some tourists from other countries, too. And Jeddah could be the first city to test it.

I will just contact them again if the tower is completed. Maybe i find a business reason or a press visa to make a small article over the tower.

"hopefully"...
I think it is for sure that this tower will be completed at 1000+ (*).
With Burj Khalifa, many people had doubts about completion. These doubts were unnecessary after all.

And "soon" means about 2,5 years patience for all enthousiasts on this forum...


(*) I still say: 1007 m...

Completion is planned 2018.
Soon 5 cranes are operating so it's not that unlikely as it seems

That´s a good picture
When the tower is completed, you´ll need more than 10 of this pictures put one on top of the other to get the building to fit in the frame.... what a tall tower!!!!
