Jordanian worshippers wishing to perform Umrah or Hajj more than once will have to pay for it.

False.

The Saudi Embassy in Jordan denied the news on its official Facebook page on Tuesday.

Earlier local media reported that Yusuf Al Qudah, the spokesman for the General Directorate of Hajj and Umrah Services, reportedly said that a fee of $533 will be imposed on returning pilgrims.

Millions of Muslims make their way to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, to perform Hajj every year, a spiritual journey that costs them from around $2,600 to $4,300, according to Al Jazeera.

Hajj began on August 30 and ended on September 4 this year.
