Government of Saudi Arabia in order to slow the spread of coronavirus has briefly ended the entry of pilgrims entering the nation to visit sacred places.
After the Middle Eastern countries introduce sweeping measures to curb the spread of the disease in the region, Saudi government decided to suspend visas for Muslims seeking to visit Mecca and Medina.
Saudi Arabia has likewise suspended visas for visitors from nations with confirmed instances of the infection.
As it stands, it isn’t clear when the visa limitations will be lifted or how Ramadan and the significant Hajj journey – which starts in July will be influenced.
The Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage that can be performed at any time of year. Many Muslims across the world make the trip annually.Especially during the holy month of Ramadan and during Hajj.
