The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced that children under the age of 12 will now be allowed to enter the kingdom to participate in the Umrah.
You may remember that due to the new crown epidemic, various restrictions were imposed on those who came to participate in the Umrah, including the entry of children under the age of 18, but the ban has now been lifted.
According to Saudi officials, residents of Saudi Arabia and citizens of Gulf Cooperation Council member states who have reached the age of 12 can obtain permission to execute Umrah, pray in the Grand Mosque, and participate in the Holy Land of the Prophet.
In addition, people 12 years and older can apply for Umrah, but they must prove on the Tawaklana app that they are fully vaccinated.
Due to the Kovarna epidemic in the Holy Land, Saudi Arabia has cancelled social distancing conditions and other standard operating procedures, but still requires tourists to wear masks.
