Background and goals
Saudi Arabia opened up for tourists inbound in 2019. When Norwegians started travelling to SA, the interest for Norway increased. Word of mouth is also valuable: if one has been to Norway and speaks nicely about it, others wants to go. TV shows documentaries about Norway, and one of the most seen series on HBO is “Vikings”
The Embassy receives many requests and see a huge interest in Norway. The interest were also there before the pandemic, as Norway & Scandinavia were more important, and an upgoing trend from this market.
SA sees Norway as very attractive: easy to find and buy halal food. Women can be covered without feeling uncomfortable. And it is very profitable to buy luxury goods in Norway.
