I am an Indian citizen and I will fly to Italy via Saudi Arabia. I have connecting flights in Saudi Arabia of two different airlines. I will carry only hand bag, no check-in bag.
From this website, I came to know that transit visa is required for more than 12 hours layover.
Now I have 5 hours layover during outbound journey.
But during the return journey, the flight from Italy is supposed to arrive in Saudi arabia at 6:30 pm and my next flight for India is on next day at 6:45 am. So I have to wait 12 hours and additional 15 minutes.
Does additional 15 minutes matters here in this case ?
Though I will board in the flight 30 minutes before 6:45 am. So I think I am not violating the guidelines of 12 hours because I will have to wait less than 12 hours.
Any comments are welcomed.
