0 14

Saudi Arabia has banned Umrah from repeating foreign travelers, only allowing them to do it three times during the 30-day stay amid concerns over rising COVID-19 charges.

According to local media reports quoting the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, the latest decision limiting the recurrence of Umrah or a small 10-day pilgrimage also applies to Muslims overseas.

“Travelers arriving from abroad are allowed to stay in the country for 30 days and must meet certain requirements,” the Department said, adding that travelers must be 12 years and older, and demonstrate a vaccination status in the Tawakkalna health system. .

Based on a 10-day recap of Umrah, Muslims overseas can perform rituals three times as much during their 30-day stay.

Saudi Arabia has previously announced that it will suspend the detention of foreign Umrah pilgrims who have taken two doses of the Covid-19 regulation approved by the State.

The announcement from the Department of Hajj and Umrah was made by local media that the fully vaccinated pilgrims could now go directly to the holy city of Makkah and begin performing Umrah rituals without the need to be confined alone.

“The residence period for foreign tourists has been increased to 30 days,” the ministry said.
