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, which corresponds 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.

Processing times and costs for the Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa

The Umrah visa application cost comprises the government fee of USD $180.00 and the iVisa service fee. Our service fee depends on how quickly you need the documents processed. We offer three options:

  1. Standard processing which takes 8 days and costs USD $256.99

  2. Rush processing which takes 5 days and costs USD $306.99

  3. Super Rush processing which takes 4 days and costs USD $377.99

Additional costs to consider when planning your Umrah trip

In addition to Saudi Arabia Visas for your family, you must consider other travel costs. Check some expenses below that you must include in your travel budget:

  • Health insurance: It is a crucial aspect of Umrah travel and is required to obtain a visa to enter Saudi Arabia. The cost varies depending on the coverage and the insurance provider. Choose a comprehensive health insurance plan that covers medical emergencies, hospitalization, and COVID-19 treatment to travel hassle-free.

  • Accommodation: The accommodation cost depends on the type of hotel and the location. Hotels in Mecca and Medina, the two holy cities, are typically more expensive than hotels in other parts of Saudi Arabia. It is essential to book accommodation in advance to get the best deals and avoid last-minute price hikes.

  • Transportation: Most Umrah pilgrims travel by air to Saudi Arabia, and the flight ticket prices vary depending on the season and the airline. It is advisable to book airfare in advance to get the best deals. Once in Saudi Arabia, you can use buses and taxis to get around the city.

  • Tourism-related activities: Many Umrah pilgrims also participate in tourism activities during their trip to Saudi Arabia. You can include visiting historical sites, shopping, and dining out on your trip budget. Check the Saudi Arabia Travel Guide to learn more about the country's attractions and daily costs.

There are many travel agencies specializing in Muslim trips. Most agencies offer an Umrah package, which can be more affordable than planning everything alone. Just ensure it is a reliable company.

Umrah Visa Options

An Umrah visa is a travel document issued by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), allowing you to enter the country to perform the Umrah pilgrimage. You can complete this religious journey anytime during the year.

With this visa, you can visit the holy cities of Jeddah, Makkah (Mecca), and Medina. The Saudi government offers many opportunities for travelers to perform their Umrah. Below, we list some of the options.

Please note: These Saudi visas cannot be used to perform Hajj. During the Hajj period, the Saudi embassy issues special Hajj Visas, and you will require a Hajj visa to enter the country. None of these visas permit studying or working.

Umrah visa

First, let’s start with the most obvious choice for pilgrims: the Umrah visa. Launched in 2019 by the government of Saudi Arabia, the Umrah Visa aims to make it easier for travelers to visit the Kingdom.

Over 50 countries can apply online with us for an exclusive Umrah visa. The special Umrah visas are more convenient and tailored for those intending to perform the Umrah pilgrimage at any time of the year. It allows Single Entry and a maximum stay of up to 90 days Per Entry.

Umrah visa on arrival

Another option is the Umrah Visa on Arrival at one of Saudi Arabia's entry points. To qualify for this visa, you will need to meet one of these conditions:

  • Be from one of the countries in the eligible countries list.

  • Hold a USA, United Kingdom, or Schengen visa. To get a visa based on this condition, you must meet these requirements:

  • The visa is valid.

  • It is a tourist or business visa.

  • Visa has to be used at least once, and you have an entry stamp from the issuing country.

  • Holders of permanent residence from (the US, UK, or EU) after ensuring the presence of the resident. This includes first-generation relatives of the visa holders coming with them.

An Umrah visa on arrival is a multiple-entry visa valid for one year from the date of issuance and allows for stays up to 90 days.

Umrah visa through package

Considered a separate or specific Umrah visa, this travel document issued by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) allows you to enter the country only to perform the Umrah pilgrimage. Pilgrims worldwide can apply for this Umrah visa, making it the most accessible option.

You must contact an approved travel agency in your home country to apply for this Umrah visa. The travel agent will help apply for the visa on your behalf after you select a travel package.

Most agencies will provide you with several packages at different price ranges to choose the one that best suits you. Packages include health insurance, visa fees, and your accommodation and travel costs within the country. (Flights to the Kingdom are usually not included in the package.)

The Umrah visa through package is a single entry visa that is typically valid for stays up to two weeks unless you are performing Umrah during Ramadan, which may result in the visa being extended to the end of the month.
