Saudi Arabia: New policies for Umrah Pilgrims by Ministry
Saudi Arabia: A new policy for Umrah Pilgrims by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah was announced. Now Umrah pilgrims are allowed to travel to other cities besides Mecca and Medina. According to a report by a foreign news agency, the validity of the Umrah visa has been extended to 30 days during which visitors will be allowed to visit other cities.
On the other hand, a statement has been issued by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, according to which those who come on Umrah visas will have the facility to stay in the country for 30 days, during which they will be able to visit other cities besides Mecca and Medina. It should be noted that before this, Umrah pilgrims were not allowed to visit any other city except Jeddah, Makkah, and Madinah during their stay in the country.
However, this is the first time that Umrah pilgrims will be able to visit other cities besides these three cities, which will be of great benefit to the pilgrims.
