A memorandum of understanding covering visa-free travel (for some) between Thailand and Saudi Arabia has been approved by the Thai Cabinet. Under the agreement, citizens of Thailand and Saudi Arabia, who hold diplomatic, official, or other special passports, can travel to each other’s countries without the need for a visa.
Visa-free entry will be granted in the case of transit or stays that do not exceed 90 days in any 180-day period, provided the visitors do not work while in the country. According to a Thai PBS World report, Thai and Saudi officials plan to sign 2 more MoUs over the course of this week’s APEC Summit in Bangkok.
One of the MoUs relates to cooperation on tourism-related matters, while the other covers mutual cooperation in the energy sector, including the development of low-carbon technology, the renewable economy, and the promotion of energy innovations.
