I'll be traveling to KSA soon for business (from the US) and am curious about the kind of internet access and restrictions that may be enforced, as well as what kinds of screening my electronics may be subject to.
I've seen references like this one that state electronic devices may be screened on entry, but it doesn't say what exactly that entails. Will someone potentially be trying to access my data to see what it is? Assuming so, my work laptop's hard drive is encrypted, so they'd have to get me to voluntarily bypass that. Would I have any right to refuse?
Regarding internet access, is it censored or monitored in any way that would surprise someone from the US? Will I have access to my private VPN?
Are there other regulations related to electronics, media, internet, etc. that I should be aware of?
