The answer is Yes. The Government allows visitors to enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with an online visa to participate in the pilgrimage and Umrah performance. Once the Hajj season is over, performing Umrah on a tourist visa does offer its own advantages such as a longer stay period, permission for multiple entries, and the freedom to choose your own hotel for Umrah.
A Saudi eVisa with multiple entries is valid for one year and allows travelers to spend up to 90 days to stay in the country. It can be used for the purpose of leisure trips, visiting family, attending events, or Umrah events, except for the Hajj season. Alternatively, travelers who wish to perform Umrah from nations other than those currently qualified should apply for visas at the Kingdom’s embassies in their respective countries.
It is easy to obtain a tourist visa to do Umrah on the Saudi Immigration Services website. The entire process of applying for a visa takes the applicants about 15 minutes. To perform Umrah, it is advisable for travelers to obtain comprehensive travel insurance. Travel insurance policy will help visitors deal with all kinds of emergencies including covering their trip interruptions, reimbursement for lost luggage, and helping pay for medical emergencies overseas.
