But in the time of COVID-19, this act is not so simple and people could face many restrictions for traveling to Saudi Arabia.

And the citizens of the UK can apply to perform Umrah through the perfect process designed by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in Saudi Arabia. Before traveling, you are advised to carefully read the information on the official website of Saudi Tours. We hope you read all information carefully and you should meet this criterion at all costs.

Basic Requirements Of Entry In Saudi Arabia

We wish to go a few years back when everything had been easy for going Umrah or Hajj without any restrictions.

We discuss some basic requirements here:

The UK’s citizens are advised to remain some days in a quarantine that is the priority to keep pilgrimage safe and secure from illness. Some countries are allowed to travel direct but some countries like the UK were on the Saudi red list. Even if you are vaccinated, you are advised to keep yourself quarantine and do a test of COVID that is still a crucial need to perform Umrah at this time. For this, you can keep yourself updated on the basic requirements of traveling at our website. We can book your package and set a transport schedule after completing a quarantine period in the hotel.
