Riyadh: The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has said that the age of Umrah pilgrims should be between 18 and 50. The ministry has come up with this standard for those coming to Saudi Arabia from foreign countries. The age limit for obtaining a permit to perform Umrah and pray in the Masjid al-Haram is between 18 and 50 years. Local newspapers quoted the ministry as saying.
Domestic Umrah pilgrims must also obtain a permit to enter the Makkah Masjid al-Haram. The ministry warned that children could not enter the harem without a permit. Umrah permits are issued only to domestic pilgrims over 12 years of age. They should have taken two doses of the Kovid vaccine.
If you want to get an Umrah visa to come from outside Saudi Arabia, there is a suggestion to contact the official travel agencies in the respective countries. These agencies must have agreements with Saudi Umrah companies. Passengers must have completed the recommended doses of Covid Wax before traveling. The ministry also said that official documents for the issuance of electronic visas must be submitted through the Saudi Foreign Ministry’s platform.
