Travel Requirements

All Umrah travel plans must be made exclusively through a Saudi governmentapproved travel agent in order to obtain entry, accommodation, and transportation in Saudi Arabia during the Umrah season. Umrah season usually starts within two months of completion of the Hajj.  Check with Saudi Embassy or your travel agent for exact dates.

Store your documents

IMG_3666It is critical that you store all your documents. Saudi regulations require that your passport is withheld at the office of the Moalim.  So before you travel, store all information about your passport, visa and travel information in the My Stuff section of this App.  You may want to make two copies of your travel documents (e.g. your passports, green cards, travel papers), including the pages stamped with Saudi visas, and keep one at home and another in a secure location during the trip.  Always keep with you updated contact information for your travel agent, its Saudi representatives, your travel group, hotel, and other emergency contacts. You can store most of this information using the My Stuff Section of this App.

 

Women

The Saudi Government requires that women below the age of 45 be accompanied by a “mahram” (e.g. close adult, male relative such as a husband, son, father, or brother) for Hajj.  Women over age 45 may travel without a mahram in an organized group, provided they submit a notarized letter of no objection from the husband, son, or brother, authorizing travel for Hajj or Umrah with the named group.  Travelers found violating this Saudi Government rule may face deportation by local immigration authorities.

Penalty for over staying

Visitors who over stay their Umrah visas are subject to a fine of 10,000 Saudi Riyals (or $2,667) and incarceration pending deportation proceedings.  All visitors should obtain clarification upon arrival as to the permitted areas of travel and length of stay.

If pilgrims lose their passports, they should immediately report the loss to their travel agent and obtain a report from the local police.  Contact the Consulate General in Jeddah who can assist in issuing emergency replacement passports or travel documents.  This maybe a very lengthy process so guard your passports. Carry extra passport size photographs as this may save you some time.

Obey local laws

Visitors to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia shall abide by the country’s Islamic laws and regulations and respect its society’s values and traditions. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s anti-drug trafficking laws are strictly enforced. Violators are subject to severe punishment, which may include the death penalty. Sectarian, political or religious gatherings are forbidden. Be extremely careful as to carrying packages from unknown persons.  Importing any of the prohibited item may subject the carrier of the item to strict punishments including death.
