The process is a bit different now, without invitation letter.

Mobily (our host) submits the form along with the visa applicants 
passport copy to MOFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) in Saudi Arabia.

After approval, MoFA will send the proper notification to the Saudi 
Office in different countries which will depend on the applicants 
location and Saudi office availability in different states.

A copy of the approval notification will be sent to you thru email in 
order for you to proceed further. Its important that the exact location 
of the applicant (I.e Ottawa-Canada, Dubai-UAE) be included in the 
information sent to the host so that the visa is sent to the right embassy.

Basically what is needed in addition to the passport copy is: applicants 
name with their actual locations and countries, profession 

Thank you for your patience
