Saudi Arabia says non-vaccinated people allowed to perform Umrah

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in Saudi Arabia confirmed that non-recipients of the coronavirus vaccine were allowed to perform Umrah under two conditions: they are not infected with the virus, or they have not been in contact with someone infected with the virus.

The ministry’s assertions came in response to one of the inquiries via its official platforms about the possibility of performing Umrah for non-vaccinated people, to answer by saying: “The non-vaccinated were allowed to perform Umrah and pray in the Two Holy Mosques, provided that they were not infected or in contact with an infected person with the Corona virus.”

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has recently witnessed some developments and updates announced by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, in implementation of the decision to lift the precautionary measures in the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque.
