Riyadh: Saudi Arabia has decided to impose a fine of 10,000 riyals on those who try to perform Umrah without permission.
According to the international news agency, while Saudi Arabia has decided to increase the number of pilgrims to 70,000, emergency decisions have been taken as a precautionary and protective measure during the Corona epidemic.
Under the new rulings, a fine of 10,000 riyals will be imposed for violating the condition of permission for Umrah.
These permits to enter the Masjid al-Haram and Masjid al-Nabawi are obtained from Saudi Arabia’s Kwid 19 tracking apps Tawakalna and Etemrana.
In addition, local children between the ages of 12 and 18 who have been vaccinated with both corona vaccines will also be able to perform Umrah, after it was announced last month that from August 9, they will gradually start receiving Umrah applications from different countries.
The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has sought to increase the number of Umrah performers to 2 million a day, for which an integrated system of vaccinations and other safety measures is being developed.
