"Murder of Saudi journalistJamal Khashoggi was premeditated", Erdogan said, adding that Turkey has strong evidence that the murder was planned.
The visa revocations are the first disciplinary measures taken by the Trump administration against the Saudis since Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post who was often critical of Saudi Arabia, was killed after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2.
Canada has been exporting arms to Saudi Arabia based on a 2014 contract, which is worth up to $13 billion.
Erdogan said 15 Saudi officials arrived in the country before Khashoggi's death.
The conference, nicknamed "Davos in the desert", has been overshadowed by the outcry over the murder of Khashoggi inside the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2, with a string of leading global investors pulling out over the case.
"We have information that the murder is not instant, but planned", he said.
Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson said Britain should "refuse to turn a blind eye" to the death of the dissident journalist and pressure Saudi Arabia into ending the brutal civil war in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia said it arrested suspects and that several top intelligence officials were fired over Khashoggi's killing, but critics alleged that the punishment was created to absolve Prince Mohammed, the heir-apparent of the world's top oil exporter, of any responsibility.
It was not immediately clear whether any of the items belonged to Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and Saudi national who disappeared after visiting the consulate in Istanbul.
On Monday, Kushner said he had told the crown prince: "Just to be transparent, to be fully transparent". He demanded that the kingdom reveal the identities of all involved, regardless of rank. That account has been questioned by world leaders, and Turkish officials have leaked accounts of audio recordings indicating the journalist was ambushed, beaten, killed and dismembered. We're going to see what we have.
Erdogan said Khashoggi's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, waited outside for hours before contacting Turkish authorities to say Khashoggi was being held against his will and was in danger.
Erdoğan called for an "entirely independent investigation" and said trials of any suspects related to Khashoggi's disappearance should be conducted in Istanbul.
In fact, according to the nonprofit group, Committee to Protect Journalists, Turkey has a far worse track record when it comes to journalists than Saudi Arabia.
But despite his criticism of the Saudi explanation, the United States vice-president would not say on Tuesday whether the U.S. believes Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was involved in what happened to Khashoggi.
"I would love if he wasn't responsible", Trump said of Mohammed, also known as MBS, to The Washington Post on Saturday.
