Starting August 9, Saudi Arabia will be welcoming Umrah, receiving Umrah pilgrimage requests from abroad for vaccinated pilgrims. After over a year of not being able to receive pilgrims, Makkah, Madinah will be estimated to allow approximate two million pilgrims whilst maintaining the necessary Covid-19 precautionary measures. The pilgrims will be required to include their respective authorised Covid-19 vaccination certificates along with their Umrah requests. Vaccinated pilgrims from countries that Saudi Arabia includes on its entry-ban list will have to be institutionally quarantined upon arrival, the report added.
