Visa application processing time frames are not guaranteed, but we strongly advise allowing at least 2 weeks for processing. The earliest a visa can be applied for is 30 days prior to your arrival date in the Kingdom. This is because you are required to enter Saudi Arabia within one Islamic month of your visa being stamped.
