Saudi Arabia: 10-day interval mandatory between Umrah permits

The mandatory interval of 10 days between the issuance of two Umrah permits is applicable to pilgrims of all age groups, including foreign pilgrims, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced.

Foreign pilgrims can perform a maximum three Umrahs during their 30-day stay in the Kingdom. A pilgrim, who obtained a permit, can book an appointment for a second Umrah through the Eatmarna or Tawakkalna app at the end of the specified 10-day period after the performance of the first Umrah, the ministry said in a statement.

All pilgrims aged 12 and above with an immune health status on Tawakkalna would be permitted to perform Umrah and prayer at the Grand Mosque.

The ministry attributed the 10-day restriction to the recent re-imposition of the COVID-19 health precautionary measures and preventive protocols following a surge in cases.
