Following the opening of Saudi Arabia to international tourism in 2019, tourism has become one of the country’s highest growth potential sectors. Saudi Arabia is already the MENA region’s largest destination for travelers and accounts for about one-fifth of the MENA’s travel and tourism GDP. With capital investment for tourism set to rise to more than $54 billion over the next 10 years, Saudi Arabia expects to attract over 100 million local and international visits per year and become a leading international tourism hub by 2030.
