I am travelling to Rome along with five other members (all in a family) from Bengaluru via Jeddah. My layover in Jeddah is 13.5 hours before i catch a connecting Flight to Rome. I won't be moving out of airport in Jeddah. Do I still need a Transit visa in Saudi Arabia.
TWOV (Transit without visa) via Saudi Arabia:
Passengers transiting through Dammam (DMM), Jeddah (JED) or Riyadh (RUH) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 12 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.
I do not think they will let you board the plane to Saudi Arabia. However, I would suggest calling the airlines office and confirming this.
