With the end of the Hajj season, Umrah permits will be issued again from July 20 or July 19. The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah said the regulation was part of an effort to make it easier for millions of Hajj pilgrims from around the world to perform their rituals. The ministry said this in response to a query from Hajj pilgrims.
Meanwhile, the ministry said that if the pilgrims who have applied for the Hajj depart from another city, they can make arrangements with the Hajj company through the e-track system or the Itamarna app.
Travel can be arranged from a convenient location associated with the company. The ministry also said that after being selected in the electronic lottery, there will be no opportunity to show the new passenger. At the same time, there will be an opportunity to cancel the application and make changes to the packages.
The ministry said that women could not perform Hajj without the mahram and therefore if the mahram’s application was rejected, the woman’s request would be voluntarily canceled. Many of the applicants did not get the package of their choice in the e-lottery. This is because the number of packages selected by each person is not available. In such cases the applicants will get the package just above or below. Officials, meanwhile, said they could wait until the next e-draw to get the package of choice.
The ministry said the Hajj would be permitted only for those who have taken Kovid vaccine doses approved by the country’s Public Health Authority or Vijaya. A total of 10 vaccines are approved by the Vijaya. The Saudi Public Health Authority has approved two doses of Pfizer Biotech, Modena, Oxford Astra Seneca, Kovacs, Novaksovid, Synofam, Synovac, Kovacsin and Sputnik, and one dose of Johnson’s. This time only pilgrims between the ages of 18 and 65 are allowed to perform the pilgrimage.
