Should be - I think they can issue one upon production of your passport.

In KSA you are allowed a maximum of two sim cards for every iqarma. Without an iqarma you can not have a sim card.

It's not 2 anymore. They have relaxed that rule. I was talking to a Mobily guy about it a couple of months ago and he said you can have up to 6.

I don't doubt it, STC told me two weeks ago the limit was 2.

I landed in Dammam last Sunday morning, walked out into the arrivals hall and within minutes had a PAYG sim card, with only a Business visa..

No issues in getting one when you land..
