It is not necessary to apply for a Saudi transit visa if you are a citizen of the GCC or a national of Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, or the UAE. You could visit ksa without a visa. Meanwhile, all other travellers are requested to get a transit visa to visit Saudi.

Even though Saudi Arabian citizens do not require a visa to enter, non-visa-exempt foreign nationals who reside in the UAE must apply for a visa to go to the Kingdom. As residents of the UAE, citizens of nations such as Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan who are often ineligible for the Saudi eVisa may apply. In this way, UAE residents could easily visit Saudi Arabia.
