Saudi Arabia allows Umrah holders of all types of visas

Saudi Arabia has announced that people with all types of entry visas will be allowed to perform Umrah.

The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has set three steps for booking an Umrah appointment: first, obtaining a visa to enter the kingdom, second, ensuring its validity at the time of registration, and third, booking an appointment on application.

According to the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, visitors coming from outside the kingdom will have to book an appointment for the payment of Umrah (Eatmarna) through the app. If so, the permission for Umrah will be automatically revoked.

The ministry further said that if the applicant was affected by Corona or kept in touch with any affected person, then the permission for Umrah would be automatically revoked.

According to reports, the announcement by Saudi Arabia comes a week after the US, UK and Schengen revived the Visa on Arrival program for valid visa holders.

Last month, Saudi Arabia offered visa-on-arrival for visa holders from the United States, the United Kingdom and Schengen.

The Schengen area is an area of ​​26 European countries that has formally abolished all passports and all other forms of border control on its borders.

In addition, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) has stated that citizens of any country who have a visa and are traveling on one of the national airlines of Saudi Arabia (Flynas or Floydale), will now apply for the first visa. Instead of applying, you can get a 12-month tourist visa on arrival in Saudi Arabia.
