A simple entry visa will cost the equivalent of CHF 500 according to the new fee regulations. Previously it only cost CHF 54. For multiple entries within six months the Saudis will be charging CHF 750 starting October 2, and CHF 1250 for a year or CHF 2000 for two years. The fees for transit visas rise to CHF 75, for exit visas (when leaving the country through a port) to CHF 13.
