Millions of Muslims have been excitedly expecting the Umrah visa rules and regulations surrounding the November 2020 opening of Saudi Arabia.
This time, Umrah’s structure is even more complicated, and the current circumstances and the whole thing going around the Globe don’t think it will be smooth sailing.
Umrah opening November 1st, 2020 then Going Onward
This is delighting news for the Travel representatives who lost business due to the traveller visas and not very shocking considering the current weather the essential for trace and track.
Saudi Arabia is organizing to open up regularly with 25k pilgrims and ultimately open for all. Saudi has done a respectable job with Hajj, so they absolutely don’t need to not make the achievement of this.
Who and How can you go for Umrah from November 1st?
Travellers between the ages of 18 and 49 years of age might try to go via a registered travel representative. Kindly make sure your representative is reputable to avoid getting cheated, as I feel this will open such a chance.
What will be the Group size Maximum
Umrah’s all-out group size is 20-50 persons, and they will have their own lead on the ground. This is definitely normal and expected, considering there are many logistics and things to make sure are happening throughout the times.
Can we cancel or change our Dates?
We cannot cancel or change our dates. Because the registration will be done online and to make sure that everything is precise, you cant cancel or change your booking for Umrah packages on short notice. Representatives will need to enter your names and information into an app 24hrs earlier to you travelling. Things will be firmer this spell around.
Is Quarantine required for Umrah?
Yes, you need to book a package with your representative for a 3 day quarantine period in your boarding house with full board. Your conveyance will also be arranged with them to take you from the airport to your guesthouse and then Makkah and Medinah.
Do we need a PCR Test?
Yes, we definitely need a PCR test issued max 72 hrs before arrival in Saudi Arabia. Such tests cost about £175 to £260 for a 24/7 hrs turnaround. You will also need a healthy to Fly Certificated!
Can you Book an Umrah package for December 2020 and January 2021?
As we know that these new guidelines are warm, many representatives still don’t have rates as hotels are starting to rate up to their rooms and representatives their journey. There are many wheels to oil to get this going, but then all being well, things will start flowing on from November 1st, which is the official starting date of the Worldwide Umrah pilgrimages.
As I each time say, please wait for a little before reserving your Umrah travelling just so the guidelines are clear and any faults are smoothed. We knew that many persons want to perform Umrah this year, but a couple of more weeks desire be a deal-breaker.
Can We perform Umrah on your own?
We cannot go for Umrah on your own; you just need to book via an authentic representative in your state to validate all the procedures and documents are intact.
Are there state limits?
At this time, there doesn’t seem to be any state limits. Still, obviously, with the condition around the inferior becoming inferior and the United Kingdom probably going into lockdown of a sort, this Might change inside a day as we have gotten in the past couple of months.
All plans are unsolidified, and it will be attention-grabbing to know how this will affect the Umrah period and if people want to change their umrah reservations.
As always, we at Hajj and Umra Express observe the situation and update you as rapidly as we have a new guideline regarding Umrah.
For all those scheduled to go for Umrah with the new regulations in 2020 or 2021, may Allah SWT make it calm for you?
