Saudi Arabia allows Umrah for vaccinated pilgrims in Ramadan

Only pilgrims and worshippers who have recovered or been vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed into the Grand Mosque in Makkah, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah said on Monday.

Umrah permits and visit permits for the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah will increase operational capacity during the month of Ramadan, starting next week.

The permits will be granted to those who have received two vaccination shots, those who have received a first dose at least 14 days before their visit to Madinah and Makkah, and those who have had the virus and recovered.

Each person’s vaccination status will need to be registered on Saudi Arabia’s COVID-19 app, Tawakkalna.
