Attaining the Umrah permit

The most important part of the process is the easiest one. The homepage will have three options: Services, Permits, and Bookings. Start by selecting the Umrah button from the services tab. Make sure you have added the companions to your tab. Confirm the time and date of your Umrah and the assembly point, such as Ajyad. The Eatmarna app will confirm your permit and message you the permit details. Be careful to keep this safe because you’ll have to show this at the gate for entry.

Adding your wife and children to the permit

Your permit should state if you’re participating in the Umrah with other companions. This will require making separate accounts for them on the Tawakkalna Application. Once they’re registered, return to the Umrah permit window. Following this, you’ll find an option to ‘add companions’; select it and enter their iqama number and date of birth. This will allow you to add your wife and children. Once they’re added, your permit will show your companions who have the joint permit with you.
