The Gulf countries are creating a travel region that tempts tourists to stay longer with more attractions.
The Gulf Cooperation Council, which includes Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman, will introduce a single Gulf visa for Europe’s Schengen Area, similar to the world’s largest single travel zone.

The visa is expected to be rolled out between 2024 and 2025, depending on the readiness of each country’s internal systems, and until then specific relevant regulations and legislation must be developed.
This initiative is an integral part of the joint tourism strategy of the aforementioned countries, which aims to increase the number of flights between the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and hotel occupancy and the region to become a prominent destination for regional and international tourists.

According to experts, the joint travel visa could help tourists spend a longer period in the region, instead of looking at Middle Eastern countries as a short transit stop or business destination.
The seeds of this project have already been visible in recent years, with individual countries offering discounts including 24- to 96-hour layover programs and hotel packages.
The world is now paying special attention to the Giga project in Saudi Arabia, which includes the construction of several impressive hotels and a new airport.
