Deepak Choudhary, Managing Director of WOW Awards Asia, said, "We are delighted to recognize the exceptional contribution of the Saudi Tourism Authority they have made to the community and society at large. The Tourism Authority has made a huge impact globally by modernizing the society and opening their country up to the world to offer unique travel experiences to Indian travelers."
"Saudi is the world's biggest new destination, undiscovered, unique and unexpected," Alhasan Aldabbagh, President of APAC, Saudi Tourism Authority said.
"The Saudi tourism offering is one of breadth and diversity, from pristine nature, diverse landscapes, rich culture, a rapidly expanding entertainment offer and authentic Arabian hospitality. As we work towards achieving our ambitious tourism goals, India is a key source market for Saudi, and this signing is key in paving the way for strategic tourism collaboration with Wow Awards Asia to unlock opportunities for growth and strengthen the position of Saudi as a must-visit destination," he added.
Saudi is set to welcome two million visitors from India this year, and India is expected to become its largest tourism source market by 2030.
Saudi is easing access for millions of visitors across India, inspiring Indian travelers to explore the authentic home of Arabia. Saudi has opened ten VFS Tasheel offices in different locations across India, such as Hyderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, Ahmedabad, and Bangalore, that are providing practical support to Indian travelers interested in a trip to Saudi.
Indian visitors are eligible for the new Stopover Visa, introduced earlier this year, which will allow passengers traveling to a final destination in SAUDIA or Flynas to visit Saudi for up to 96 hours, which includes a complimentary hotel night for Saudia passengers. Additionally, Indian passport holders that have UK, US and Schengen visas that have been used at least once will now be able to apply for a Saudi e-visa online.
Saudi is home to six UNESCO World Heritage sites. The ancient city of AlUla is the world's largest living museum, holding 200,000 years of largely unexplored human history with vast canyons, rock-cut tombs and stunning landscapes, along with world-class restaurants and trailblazing luxury resorts.
Saudi's diverse landscape can be enjoyed year-round, from the cool, green highlands of Asir, where the locals holiday in the summer, to the Pristine Waters of Saudi's 1,700km long Red Sea coast, where you can swim amongst rare fish and the world's fourth-largest coral reef.
