International Umrah to resume from 1st Muharram

Saudi Arabia will resume Umrah for international pilgrims starting on the 1st of Muharram (August 9, 2021) following a successful Hajj season. 

The Umrah pilgrimage for Saudi citizens and resident expatriates in the kingdom began again on Sunday, July 25.

Pilgrims can book Umrah packages and make payments online. Only those who have been fully vaccinated against coronavirus are eligible to apply for an Umrah visa.

Umrah is a voluntary pilgrimage that Muslims can perform at any time of the year.
