Yes, as a non-muslim you can visit any city except Mecca and Medina. You need a visa though, but a visa is much easier to get than in the past. You no longer need an invitation.

I believe we need to respect what the SA and Islam stand here.
It's their rights.

Please can someone update me on what's happening with this tower, is it stalled? Thank you.

Yes. In fact, if anyone hears or sees anything credible, send me or another moderator a PM so we can reopen discussion. Recently there has been a lot of off topic posts having nothing to do with Jeddah or this particular project.

So, what "credible" news has caused the re-opening of this thread?

I assume that because this thread is reopened, the JT is resuming construction sometime in the near future

Just the recent site photo. There hasn't been many. I had an errand to run otherwise I would have locked it again earlier.

There is nothing around the tower, no cars, no building materials, no personel.

Thx for the pics!

Still no sign of progress. I've the strong feeling that this one and Dubai Creek Tower will never get build.

That's really too bad. I remember back in 2018, I truly believed that in 2020 there would be a new tallest building in the world.

It will be both of them built or none at all, as the Creek tower was a direct response to Jeddah's tower. Now with JT on hold, no need to build creek tower as there is no competition.

They should just place a giant golden statue on top of... I don't know, a crescent moon, or anything really, and call it done. And then they can claim the record for the world's largest statue.

This is most likely true but what is going to happen with this concrete skeleton then? I mean, Dubai Creek Tower is just a hole in the ground. I know they have poured a concete slab but it can easily be covered and turned into a park. But this one cannot....
