    After Hajj from what I understand is that to travel for umrah it is closed for a month or so but easter holiday next year should be fine and open. Hope that helps.

      InshaAllah, umra season will commence from end of December this year and there is no evidence to support this rumour.

                ASA,

                I am also in the process of arranging for my second umrah trip, ISA, I also intend for Easter 2013, however I have done extensive research and reading of Arab news and havent seen any proof of these rumors. My thinking is that something as big as stopping umrah visas for a year, means as much as 3 million persons not visiting the kingdom, so this kind of information would have already been published, not being spread by the rumor mill. ISA things should be ok, I pray that God almighty accept from me and all intended mutaamirs our sincere intention to visit the Haramain ISA.

                However another assurance from people inside the industry like Bro. Ismail Simgee would be comforting.

                      I am in Makkah and have met with my umra contractors ( I have 4) and raised this with them.

                      I had a straight answer from one of them saying 1st Safar 1434 meaning 20 December 2012. The others simply said to me not to pay attention to rumours.

                      So, I am gearing up for my system to kick off on or after 15 December this year InshaAllah.

                        Jazakum Allahu Khayran.

                        So i can safely go ahead and book my flights, i am using BA POS-LON-JED-LON-POS, i am flying from the caribbean since my local travel agent told me BA have the best rates. I however saw some concerns hear about booking Umrah flghts with BA. A travel agent in the US will be organizing my hotels and VISA. Should i worry about problems with BA, once i have secured my VISA?

                        Last time i went for umrah i used SA but the flights were not direct.

                          Any online booking is perilous and BA is no exception.

                          I suggest you hold on till mid December before commtting yourself.

                            How is makkah? is it still packed? glad to hear the money exchange is available in Makkah!

                            the walk to Ibrahim al-Khaleel road still traumtises me!

                              @bro Ismail Simji I am not booking the flights online, I am using the services of a flight agent hear in my country. I wanted to book early to take advantage of the early seat prices, is the reason I should wait till mid December, is to wait till the season actualy starts because there can be some truth to the rumors. Or is it because you thought I was booking online?
