Saudi Arabia Declares Fines for 2024 Haj Rule Violations

Saudi Arabia has announced penalties for breaking Haj rules and regulations for 2024. The Ministry of Interior in the country states that citizens and visitors found without a Haj permit in the following locations will be fined 10,000 riyals (roughly Dh 9,800). These locations include the city of Mecca, the Central area, sacred sites, Al-Haramain Train Station in Al-Rasifa, security control centres, temporary security control centres, and sorting centres. The penalty will take effect on June 2, 2024, and last until June 20, 2024.

In line with the timeframes mentioned in Saudi legislation, the Ministry further declared that individuals living in non-designated areas without a permit would be sent back to their home countries and not allowed to re-enter the Kingdom. Recurring violations will result in a double penalty of the 10,000 riyal fine imposed on offenders. According to Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior, people living in non-designated areas without permits will be returned home.

According to the Ministry, people who live in non-designated areas without a permit will be sent back to their home country and will not be allowed to re-enter the Kingdom for the duration of the times specified by Saudi law. If a repeat infraction occurs, the 10,000 riyal fine levied on violators will be doubled.
