umrah procedure ,visa and cost
Hi brothers and sisters
basically I need some advise for umrah.
I have planned my holidays to pakistan.I would like to spend my holidays in pakistan and on my way back to london i want to perform my umrah along with my wife and 3 year old son.
so my concern is to get some information what will be the procedure to get visa and other requiremnts.
also how much it will cost me?and should i get the visa from here or it would be better to get it from pakistan.
any replies will be highly appreciated.

Re: umrah procedure ,visa and cost
The umra visa, once issued, has to be used up within 30 days of its issue date. Hence, if you plan your stay in Pakistan for three weeks or more than your visa would expire and you will have to re-apply again, yes, from UK. So make a proper travel schedule should you need to apply from UK.
Only a licensed umra agent can facilitate your umra visa and package. There are hundreds of travel agent in UK who will offer you this service but there were just 41 licensed agents last Umra season. So take care.
The umra season starts from 1st of Rabi ul Awwal and ends in Ramadan. This coincides with early February next year.
No tariff rates are available yet for the package or visa. You will have to wait until end of January next year to get an estimated cost.
