Differences between the Saudi Arabia Umrah Visa and the Saudi Arabia Tourist Visa

Do you need the Tourist Visa or the Umrah visa? Here are some of the essential differences to consider:

  1. Purpose: The Umrah visa is designed for Muslims performing pilgrimage in Mecca and Medina, while the tourist eVisa is open to all for general tourism.

  2. ZamZam benefits: Only Umrah visa holders can take ZamZam water out of the country. Tourist eVisa holders don't have this privilege.

  3. Eligibility & requirements: The tourist eVisa is limited to applicants from 49 countries, whereas the Umrah visa is globally available, making it more in demand and sometimes harder to obtain.

  4. Number of entries: Enjoy multiple entries with the tourist eVisa, but note that the Umrah visa is a single-entry visa.
