Umrah Pilgrimage

Umrah is a pilgrimage to Makkah that Muslims can undertake at any time of the year, unlike Hajj, which has specific dates. It involves performing a series of religious rites, including Tawaf (circling the Kaaba) and Sa’i (walking between the hills of Safa and Marwah), to show devotion and seek forgiveness from Allah. While not obligatory, it is a highly recommended act of worship that holds great spiritual significance for Muslims worldwide.

Saudi Arabia has recently announced the resumption of Umrah after this year’s Hajj season. If you are planning an Umrah and have already applied, this article explains how you can check your Umrah visa status. By following the steps in this article, you can easily confirm your Umrah visa status and plan your journey.
