What are you going there to do? There is really no such thing as a tourist visa for KSA. You are basically required to have a business sponsor, and how fast that gets processed is more based on them. If you are going for Umrah or Haj that is a whole different process.

Then the company you're doing business with have to provide a letter of invitation which they get from Saudi embassy in Saudi. (this can take up to two weeks) that's not taking into account the length of time it takes company to apply.

Once you get letter of invitation you apply to Saudi embassy in Dubai and it takes 3 days! if doing from UK without local residency in Dubai again it takes up to 2 weeks to process in London. (thats why I asked if you had residency)

If I am going to Saudi I always make my visits 4 weeks from the date I start planning.

Single is set entry & exit dates (including airport entry & exit)

Multi entry is normally 6 months (generally entry & exit airport is stated in visa, never tried going in or leaving from different airport as immigration is bad enough in Saudi without adding question to validity of visa!)

Generally multiple entry is only 3 months these days. (used to be 6 earlier).
