MAKKAH — The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah confirmed that it has not fixed for pilgrims any specific number of times to perform Umrah. “However, it is mandatory to comply with the directive to take an appointment for the specific time for performing the pilgrimage,” the ministry said while replying to queries.

The ministry stated that those who arrived in the Kingdom on a visit, tourist, or work visa can perform Umrah. The pilgrim can also change the means of transportation that he had used for his arrival during his departure from the Kingdom.

The ministry pointed out that the holder of the Umrah visa can travel between Makkah and Madinah as well as among all the cities of the Kingdom during the permitted period of his stay. The Umrah pilgrims can enter and leave Saudi Arabia from any international or regional airport in the Kingdom.
