The Ministry of Haj and Umrah has announced that Tuesday, July 2, will be the last day of entry into the Kingdom for pilgrims who have already been issued with Umrah visas.
In a circular, the ministry informed the Umrah service providers that the electronic issuance of Umrah visas was stopped on Monday, June 17, ahead of the annual Haj pilgrimage. It, however, said pilgrims who have issued visas before June 17 would be allowed to enter into the Kingdom until July 2.
The ministry asked the service providers to make sure that all Umrah pilgrims left Saudi Arabia for their respective homes. It warned that severe punishments would be applied to Umrah visa overstayers.
Saudi Vision 2030 targets to give an outstanding experience to the umrah pilgrims by providing them with excellent services.
