Now Umrah Visa within 24-Hours with the New E-Visa Service launched by Saudi Govt


Makkah — Saudi Government introduced a new E-Visa service to get Umrah visas within 24 hours instead of requesting embassies and consulates, Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced on Saturday.

Ministry’s undersecretary, Abdulaziz Wazzan said that the service started on Saturday and he is expecting over 10 million visa-requests in the new season.

“People coming for Umrah will not have to go to Saudi embassies or consulates as they can have their visas issued electronically in less than 24 hours,” he was quoted as saying in Okaz Arabic daily.

The new portal is named as the central platform for the electronic issuance of the Umrah visas and it will be extensively used during the upcoming Umrah season, Ministry said.
