The Saudi Arabian Embassy announced it has upgraded its visa services for travelers and business persons going to the largest Arab country in western Asia.

The Saudi Arabian Embassy in Korea will move its visa services to a single contractor, the VFS Tasheel International Visa Service Centre, as of April 15 to improve services for travelers and business people going to the Arab Kingdom.

The embassy currently uses 10 designated travel agencies to process its visa applications.

VFS Tasheel will provide visa services and handle biometric characters, including fingerprints and passport photos for those who apply to visit Saudi Arabia.

VFS Tasheel will operate a single visa center and will replace the role of the current designated travel agencies for visa issuance.

The center opens April 12 and begins Saudi visa services from April 15. VFS Tasheel Company’s address is: 702 Hanmi Building, Gongpyung 1-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul 110-160.
