The Saudi government has said that women are now allowed to participate in tourism activities that include organizing tours and inviting others from abroad.
The Saudi Gazette reported that the law was enacted on Friday, and that the government had done so to give women access to employment.
Under this system, the women of the country who will organize the tour have the opportunity to rent a car and rent accommodation and entertainment as well as take care of the tourist destinations in the country.
Except under the conditions set by the country, the owner of the tour company must be a Saudi citizen, male or female, or an investor in a licensed country, according to the law.
In recent years, women have been given the opportunity to do many things, such as driving a car and going to watch football and going out without a mahram.
The move has sparked controversy from various Muslim countries as well as some Saudi nationals
