The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will now permit visitors on tourist visas to do Umrah, according to the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.
The decision has been made to let as many people participate in the ritual as possible.
Citizens of 49 nations will be able to accomplish this by obtaining their visas for Saudi Arabia online or at the airports as soon as they arrive.
To perform Umrah, visitors are required to obtain comprehensive health insurance, which includes covering the costs of COVID-19 treatment, accidents resulting in death or disability, and expenses arising from flight delays or cancellations.
Those wishing to perform Umrah from nations other than those who currently qualify, should apply for visas at the Kingdom’s embassies in their countries.
Documents required include proof of residence and employment, return ticket, bank statement proving financial stability, itinerary, and complete personal information.
