Actually my point is that Dan got it backwards. Saudi doesn't issue visas to allow its citizens to visit the US. The US issues that kind of visa, since a visa is permission to visit, and foreign countries don't have the authority to do that. Saudi Arabia can issue visas to allow foreigners to visit *their* country (although good luck if you're a woman or a tourist -- hajj and business visas are pretty well all that Saudi Arabia issues).
