Saudi: Visit visa for Umrah within 24 hours

Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah announced on Thursday the launching of electronic service to apply for Umrah visa for individual Umrah pilgrims from outside Saudi Arabia.

The visit visa for Umrah will be issued now within 24 hours and applications for Umrah visas can be submitted from outside Saudi Arabia, away from Umrah campaigns. One million people will perform Hajj this year including 850,000 (85 percent) foreign pilgrims and 150,000 (15 percent) domestic pilgrims.
