Saudi Arabia has extended Umrah Visa from 30 days to 90 days.
The Kingdom Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced the extension of the duration of Umrah Visa in Makkah.
The Ministry said in a statement that, in order to avoid violating the regulations, it called on Pilgrims to ensure that they complete the Umrah within the specified period and leave before the expiration of the Visa period.
“It is noteworthy that during this period, Pilgrims can freely move between Makkah and Madinah and all the cities around Saudi Arabia during their stay,” the statement said.
It added that the Pilgrims can enter and leave from any international or regional airport in the Kingdom.
The Ministry also noted that Pilgrims must register in the Nusuk application and issue Umrah permits, stressing that they are also required to have an effective Visa to enter Saudi Arabia, such as Tourism Visa, Visit Visa, and Umrah Visa. – SG
