Yemen is located on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, and sharing borders with Saudi Arabia and Oman. Yemen has had a troubled recent history with civil wars and tribal conflicts predominating.
Visa regulations change quite regularly, and an embassy should be contacted to make certain that the relevant documentation is obtained. Currently, citizens of most countries (with the possible exception of Gulf Co-operation Council members) need visas. Most visas are valid for 30 days from the date of issue and should be kept with the passport at all times before being surrendered at departure.
Arriving visitors will need to complete an arrival form, which has the unusual requirement of one's father's name and one's grandfather's name. The visa number will be required here, as will other information on the visa form - which is only printed in Arabic.
In practice, officials will only rarely ask for the visa form on departure. The form can therefore be kept as an unusual souvenir.
As of November 10, 2005 it was possible for an American citizen to obtain a visa on arrival at Sana'a airport (effortlessly, for a $15 fee), despite categoric statements by a Yemen embassy official in Cairo a few days earlier that a government invitation and a week of processing would be needed.
