Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa for Moroccan citizens
3 min read
Updated on May 19, 2024

You'll need the right visa if you're traveling from Morocco to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.

Applying for a visa can be overwhelming, but with our help, it’s much easier. Our goal is to simplify this part of your travel planning.

We strive to make your visa application process as smooth as possible so that you can focus on your upcoming pilgrimage. Let’s get started.

Do Moroccan citizens need an Umrah Visa?

Yes, Moroccans who wish to travel to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah must get a visa.

The rituals of Umrah are a beautiful expression of devotion. The Tawaf, or circling the Kaaba, represents the unity of Muslims worldwide, and the Sa'i, or walking between the hills of Safa and Marwa, symbolizes the endurance of Hagar.

The Umrah Visa allows Muslims to visit Mecca and Medina, the two holy cities in Saudi Arabia, to perform the pilgrimage. This Saudi Arabian visa is explicitly issued for Umrah and is different from other types of visas issued for Saudi Arabia, such as work or tourist visas.

As a Moroccan, there are three ways to get to Saudi Arabia for the Umrah pilgrimage:

  1. Using an Umrah Visa issued by a local travel agent or service provider that is approved by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to book Umrah packages.

  2. Using a Saudi Tourist eVisa. You can apply for a Saudi Tourist eVisa online if you meet one of the following conditions:

  • You’re a permanent resident of the USA, the UK, or the EU.

  • You hold a valid visa from the US, the UK, or any country in the Schengen Zone and have used it at least once.

  • You’re a GCC resident and have had your permanent residence visa for at least three months.

If you don't meet any of these conditions, you must apply for a visa in person at the nearest Saudi embassy or consulate.

  1. Using a Saudi Transit eVisa. A transit/stopover visa can also be used to perform Umrah. Once you arrive in Saudi Arabia, it’s valid for 96 hours.

Introduction of new Umrah Visa rule in 2024

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in Saudi Arabia has made significant updates to the Umrah Visa rules. Umrah Visas now remain valid for 90 days from the issue date. Previously, the validity of the visa began once you arrived in Saudi Arabia.

In addition, Umrah Visas for pilgrims coming from outside the country will now expire on 15 Dhu al-Qa’dah, corresponding to May 23, 2024, for the current season. The previous expiry date was 29 Dhu al-Qa’dah. This change allows Saudi authorities more time to prepare for the Hajj season, aiming to improve the experience for both Umrah and Hajj pilgrims.

All international pilgrims must leave the country by the new expiry date. There are penalties for overstaying an Umrah Visa, which will be levied on both the pilgrims and the companies that arranged their visas.

How to get a Saudi Umrah Visa from Morocco

  1. Find an approved travel agency or service provider in Morocco. Get a list of required documents from them.

  2. Gather all the required documents and submit them to the travel agency along with your visa application form.

  3. Pay the visa and agency fees.

  4. Wait for your application to be processed. The agency will notify you once your visa is approved.

  5. Collect your passport from the travel agency. Double-check the details on the visa to make sure they’re correct.
