RIYADH – The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has abolished 14 day waiting period for Umrah pilgrims.

Pilgrims wishing to perform Umrah will now no longer be required to wait for 14 days to book for the ritual, according to the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

A statement issued by Kingdom’s official agency had said: “This is in line with the decision to ease precautionary measures and to allow pilgrims and visitors to the Grand Mosque at full capacity”.

Meanwhile, Saudi officials said worshippers must be fully vaccinated against the novel virus while all visitors need to wear face masks within the mosque.
