The Tourism Ministry Claims that Holders of any Kind of Visitation Visa are not Entitled to Perform Hajj

According to the guidelines and directives in effect in Saudi Arabia, holders of visit visas of any kind are not permitted to conduct the Hajj. This was confirmed by the Ministry of Tourism.

Saudi nationals, foreigners living abroad, and tourists who are detected visiting Makkah without a valid Hajj permit will be fined SR 10,000. Anyone found in the holy cities of Makkah, the Central Haram Area, the Holy Sites of Mina, Arafat, and Muzdalifah, the Haramain train station in Rusayfah, security control centers, pilgrims’ grouping centers, and temporary security control centers without a valid Hajj permit will face harsh penalties. Regardless of their nationality or legal status, those who disobey the rules and directives from the government will face consequences.

The ministry underlined the significance of following Hajj rules and instructions so that God’s guests may experience security, safety, and comfort while carrying out their rituals, and that the security authorities will double the fine of SR10,000 on violators in the event that the violation is repeated.

The Ministry of Tourism urged visitors to the Kingdom with all kinds of visitation visas to follow the terms of the agreement, read the instructions before applying for the visa, and follow all guidelines strictly to prevent breaking any laws.
