Saudi Arabia Relaxes Rules For Umrah Pilgrimage

SRINAGAR: In response to an inquiry on the expiration of Umrah visas after the Haj season, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah clarified that the 90-day visa period starts from the pilgrim’s entry into Saudi Arabia and must be adhered to.

The Ministry also stated that the length of stay for those with Umrah visas is 90 days.

Reservations for performing Umrah at the Grand Mosque in Makkah during the current Islamic month of Shawwal can be made through the Nusuk application, which also provides visas, permits, and packages for visiting holy places in Saudi Arabia.

Electronic permits for Umrah remain mandatory, and the Kingdom has recently unveiled several facilities for Muslims to perform Umrah.
