About Landscape

Saudi Arabia Security Overview

Saudi Arabia is considered a high threat location for terrorism. Terrorist groups such as ISIS and al-Qa’ida are active within the region. These groups demonstrate the ability to influence local individuals to conduct attacks and target areas where tourists generally frequent, including public transport hubs and shopping complexes. It’s very likely these groups have both the intent and capability to conduct attacks against foreign travelers if the opportunity arises.

Travel by road is medium risk. Most roads in major cities are generally adequate; however, the overall standard for the country is low. Rural roads are unsafe and poorly constructed with little road markings, reduced visibility due to poor lighting and dusty surfaces, and unexpected hazards are frequent. Most Saudi drivers are known to drive at excessive speeds while traveling through remote locations, increasing the risk to personal safety.

Road Traffic Collisions (RTCs) are frequent and are a result of inadequate driver training, lack of road discipline and excessive speeding. World Health Organization (WHO) have advised Saudi Arabia as having one of the highest death rates in the world as a result of RTCs.

All clients utilizing ETS for secure tramsportation and Executive protection will have free access to the travel security training by ExploreSecure® eLearning
