      Re: Regulations on umra visit

      So last year Saudi started charging a fee if you went for a 2nd Umrah (or more) in one (Hijrih) year, it was SR 2000, correct?

      Is this rule still in place or did they decide to rescind it for this new year about to start (w/Muharram)?
      If staying, is it still SR 2000 or going to increase? (unoffficially unverified just us 'uncles talking' someone mentioned that the fee may increase this year - NOTE - this is less valid than a rumour; I'm merely sharing here to ask if there's any such news on the grapevine about this as I plan on going in Ramadhan Inshallah and possibly in Rabi-ul-Awwal (2x).)

      Last year I did pay the SR 2000 for the trip in Ramadan as it was my 2nd.
      Thanks in advance

      p.s. if the sticky is not the right thread, please let me know and I'll gladly move it to a new thread.

        The sticky is'mt the right thread.

        Last year's rule is here to stay. All first timers, this year, will go free of visa charges but pay SR2,000 on their subsequent trip within the season.

          I did umrah last year end of Nov. It means if i go this year in December or Jan 2018 then i do not need to pay any fee??? Is it correct?

            New Rule on Umra Visitors being introduced this year is on internal transfers.

            Nothing has been mentioned about the charges but pilgrims will have to travel on government supplied coaches, same as they do for Hajj, from Jeddah to Makkah or Madinah and vise versa.

                As always, thanks for sharing the latest rules and regulations as you come across them.
                When you find out more details, please do share as well.

                In addition to Abu Eesa's question, I'm curious if this to/from JED only or even between the Holy cities?
                In the past few years, they opened up rules to allow Umrah visitors to go to other cities beyond just JED, MED, Makkah (to promote tourism industry in the economy I presume). So how does that now work?

                  Their quest for tourism, which would allow performing umra for muslims, is separate from umra visits. Visits to historical sites, outside of Makkah and Madinah, is still not permitted formally although they are not rigorously implementing that prohibition.

                  New rules are still evolving whilst the earlier ones are still clouded and difficult to actually interpret.

                  One circular, issued yesterday, states that another 15% increase will be applied from the month of Rajab.

                  AND ONLY ALLAH KNOWS BEST.

                    Assalam alikum Ismail Brother
                    I am having a problem and hope that u can guide me.
                    my visa has been issued and valid from 15.05.2018, with a validity of 15 days and a duration of stay 30 days.
                    my flight is however on 31 of May. Obviously the validity will be expired when i reach jeddah on 1 june. My flight is non refundable and non changeable. My agent made a mistake even though he knew my travel dates. Now he is claiming that nothing can be done now. He said that this visa need to be canceled and new one should be issued and this process takes time and in Ramadan the system is now closed. He is suggesting that i can try flying with the visa and no one will check the validity.
                    Please give me advice what can be done in my case. Offcourse i can buy a new ticket but it will be very heavy on my budget.
                    thanks in advance

                          Biometric data is now a mandatory process for everyone, from UK, to obtain an umra visa. The licensed umra agent, in UK, must take a picture of his/her client's passport, full face picture to capture the iris, and finger print all 8 fingers and two thumbs. Without this, the visa will not be issued.
                          The added problem is that this process is checked after money is paid for the whole package through the Saudi Ministry's agency - Al Maqam - and if any of the process is weak or fails to get through, then the visa is refused and no refund is made.
                          Aspiring pilgrims can do this themselves by downloading the bio data app or visit their agent who will carry it out on site.
