Riyadh — Anyone caught coming to perform Umrah without having a permit will face a fine of SR10,000. The public security warned on Saturday.

The public security said it would check pilgrims’ permits in the Tawakkalna application. The permits will be checked against the national identity, residence, passport number, or border number.

The Ministry of Interior and the public security have stressed the importance of issuing the permit through Tawakkalna or Eatamarna apps. They warned that Umrah would not be allowed without obtaining a permit.

The Ministry has restricted the minimum age for issuing permits to perform Umrah and pray at Al-Rawdah Sharifa to be limited to only children aged five and over.


Non-vaccinated people can perform Umrah and enter the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque. Provided such persons are not infected with coronavirus or have been in contact with corona-infected people.
