Pakistanis can now go for Umrah from November 1

According to 24 News News TV channel, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has allowed international pilgrims to perform Umrah from November 1.

The Saudi government has allowed visitors from countries including Pakistan where the incidence of corona virus has decreased.

Pakistan has been added to the list of countries free from corona virus and the ministry will release a complete list of countries from which pilgrims will be allowed to visit holy cities in due course.

Pilgrims can also go for Umrah in groups and have to submit a report of corona virus test 72 hours before departure to Saudi Arabia.

Umrah pilgrims will have to go to quarantine for three days after arriving in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has allowed pilgrims to perform Umrah inside the country since October 4, after a seven-month hiatus due to the Corona virus outbreak.

In March, the country announced the launch of Umrah, an Islamic pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, which attracted 19 million people last year.

Starting November 1, the kingdom will now allow visitors from specific countries to perform Umrah at 100% of the revised capacity until the end of the epidemic.

The decision to revive Umrah was made in late July after the kingdom performed the smallest hajj in modern history, allowing only 10,000 Muslims to take part – 2.5 million who took part last year. By the way this is a very distant sound.

Health officials say no cases of the corona virus have been reported at holy sites during the Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam, and that young Muslims need to have at least one in their life. Times
