LATEST HAJJ AND UMRAH UPDATE [ November 2022]
Alhamdulillah, around 1,000,000 pilgrims completed Hajj this year, that is, Hajj 2022.
Around 850,000 foreign visitors were issued Hajj visas and the number of pilgrims from within the Kingdom were 150,000. The age restriction for Hajj was 12-65 years and only guests who had completed their vaccination were allowed to perform the Hajj.
Umrah season for the Hijri 1444 began from July 25, 2022, for all countries.
As per the latest guidelines, request you to note the following details:
There is no age restriction for Umrah and guests who have completed their vaccination are allowed to perform Umrah.
Direct flights for Umrah are available between Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and India, as of now. The direct flights will land in Jeddah only. Guests wishing to travel to Madinah first or intending to plan their return flights from Madinah have to opt for VIA flights/ One Stop flights, as no direct flights are available to and from Madinah.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has successfully completed 99% vaccination target for its citizens and expats and thus most restrictions due to COVID 19 have been uplifted.
Guests intending to perform Umrah do not need to stay in any third country before entering Saudi Arabia.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has approved all the vaccines available in India. Vaccination is NOT mandatory to travel for Umrah now. All guests, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, can now travel for Umrah without any RT PCR test.
Booster dose is NOT mandatory to enter the Kingdom for Umrah.
Guests who have completed their vaccination, DO NOT need to undergo any quarantine upon entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Further, online registration (Muqeem) may be required to perform Umrah and the guests are required to download 'Eatmarna' and 'Tawakkalna' App to get 'Riyadh Al Jannah' permits, especially for ladies. The newly introduced tourist visa is now available for the citizens of most of the countries. It is important to note that you are allowed to perform Umrah on this tourist visa.
As far as the package prices are concerned, insurance and handling costs have led to several fold increase in the Umrah visa prices. Furthermore, VAT has been increased from 5% to 15% and Municipality Tax of 5% has also been added to the hotels and transport. Therefore, the total package prices have substantially increased.
The further decline if the Indian Rupee has also led to increase in the Umrah package prices.
