Umrah Visa Requirements

With the introduction of e-visa since April 2019, you only need the following documents when applying for an Umrah visa from Pakistan.

  1. Original Passport
  2. 2 Photographs each with blue background
  3. Besides the, above the following may be needed in addition, for certain cases:
  • Marriage certificates, in cases where the surname of the wife is different from Husband. This normally happens when the wife has her maiden (before marriage) name on the passport and/or ID card. This is also needed in cases where a married woman is traveling with her brother and her name on the passport and/or ID is that of her husband. If it sounds confusing, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
  • Proof of conversion to Islam. This can be obtained from your local mosque. This is only required for new Muslims.
  • NADRA NICOP. This is required in case a foreign passport is used for visa application and the applicant is also a Pakistani citizen. Please discuss your case with us if your case falls into this category.
  • Form B (or Bay Form, as it is called). This is also needed in case of siblings traveling with different names
  • Flights e-tickets and hotels vouchers, if the package is not booked through us. Booking.com and sites where payment is made after arrival by the guest are not acceptable.

Umrah Visa Rules

Men below 40

In Pakistan, men below 40 years of age can not travel alone for umrah. They have to be accompanied by a female relative. This was introduced by Saudi authorities after repeated complaints of abuse of Umrah visa for labor and other purposes of absconding. The trend has been further harnessed by linking all ministries related to the Umrah and Hajj process and tight immigration control of the Saudi government and a strict overstay policy.

Non Muslim Name

If a person has a non-Muslim name, due to recent conversion to Islam, a certificate from the local mosque certifying that he/she has converted to Islam is required. Such a certificate from another country where the conversion took place can also be acceptable. Please check with us for further details.

Validity of Umrah Visa

Umrah visa is valid for a total of 30 days from the date of issue. However, to offset certain things, you should be out of Saudi in a maximum of 28 days. This is manifested by all umrah packages being offered for a maximum of that duration.

Passport Validity

On the date of application of Umrah visa, your passport should be valid for at least 7 months. The minimum required on the date of travel is 6 months. Below this mark, you might face problems getting the visa or at the airport while boarding. Make sure all your passports are valid for the duration.

Women below 45

Women below 45, in Pakistan (as in all other countries), cannot travel alone for umrah, as long as they are not over 45 years of age. Below this age, they have to travel with a mahram. Mahram can be any blood relative and/or your husband. Please be aware of fraudsters promising to attach you with families. Never take a risk of doing something illegal.

Polio Vaccination

Polio vaccination is mandatory for all Umrah pilgrims from the last few years. You can get the drops from any closest government hospital. Private options are also there but they are almost all very expensive. However, it may depend on your locality. The vaccination cards are required to be submitted with passports, at least two weeks before departure.

Cities Allowed for Umrah Visa

Jeddah, Makkah and Medinah are the only three cities, you can visit on an umrah visa. Any people hoping to meet you while in Saudi will have to travel to one of these cities. The Saudi governent is working on relaxing these rules but visits to other cities will still have to be part of a package. We will update this space once the rules reflect in visa system. 

SAR 2000 Fee

The Saudi government has imposed an SAR 2000 fee on pilgrims travelling for umrah, either within Hijri year 1438 or 1439. This is a government fee and there are (unfortunately) no ways about it. You have to pay this fee if you have visited the holy places before November 2016. Remember, any Umrahs done before that do not count towards this. The fee is payable on top of the umrah visa fees already in practice.

Latest photographs

We all like our young looks but the photographs you send for the visa should be latest. The ladies should not have their face covered. Headcovers are fine, as long as they do not overly drop on the face and make recognition difficult.

Ports of Entry

Only Jeddah and Medinah are valid ports of entry for travel by air for umrah. Please do not book flights to any other airport, as for one you will not get a visa or will be denied boarding or worst come deported form Saudi Arabia.

Umrah Visa FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about Umrah Visa from Pakistan

Is Umrah Visa Free?

Although the Saudi embassy processes Umrah visa for free, as declared by them, the Saudi companies whose system is used to get MOFA, so charge money. There are also our expenses and risk covers that are accounted for. It is a practice with Umrah and Hajj agents worldwide.

Is my umrah visa guaranteed?

Just like a visa to any other country, Saudi Umrah visa fees are charged against umrah visa application and process only. The visa is a discretion of the Saudi embassy and is never guaranteed. Although Alhamdo Lillah we enjoy 100% visa success ratio till now, we do not take any responsibility for any rejected visas. There is no communication from the embassy in such cases and we can only convey if a visa is approved or rejected.

How long does the umrah visa process take?

Even as Umrah visa process normally takes 4-5 working days, we normally request you to allow two weeks to process your umrah visas. This might be especially helpful if any additional documents are needed etc.  The process time can be shorter from Moharram to Rajab and longer from Rajab to Ramadan.

Can I take umrah visa without package?

You can book umrah visa from us without umrah package as well. However, we recommend that you book the whole package with one agent to avoid problems. An umrah package is a finely knit thing that agents know best, owing to the local dynamics involved. However, if you still wish to book umrah visa only, no issues. But we will need to confirm hotel and airline bookings for that. Please get in touch for any further details.

Can I get an Umrah visa online without an agent?

No, it is not possible to get an umrah visa online. You have to apply through an agent.

What is the difference in Ramadan about Umrah Visa?

Unlike all other months, Ramadan is different in terms of umrah visa. The following rules apply to the Ramadan umrah visa process:

  1. The process can take upto 3 weeks, so give us your passports at least one month before departure.
  2. Sometimes Saudi embassy runs out of stickers and hence the delays are even longer.
  3. The validity of the visa, is reduced to 15 days from Rajab onwards normally. Remember this is not the validity of stay. Stay still remains at 30 days max.
  4. While we have 100% visa ratio, Alhamdo Lillah, we do not accept any responsibility for any rejected or delayed visas from the embassy due to any reason.
Do I need to fill and Umrah visa form?

No, that is no longer necessary.

Do I need Polio Vaccination for Umrah visa?

No, that is no longer necessary.

Should I get any other vaccination?

Although it is not a requirement by the Saudi embassy anymore, we recommend that you take flu vaccine and Meningitis vaccine if possible for your own benefit. However, this is not a medical advice and you should consult your doctor before any vaccination.

What is the minimum age for Umrah Visa?

Although it is not a requirement by the Saudi embassy anymore, we recommend that you take flu vaccine and Meningitis vaccine if possible for your own benefit. However, this is not a medical advice and you should consult your doctor before any vaccination.

Is Umrah visa cost flexible?

Cost charged can change anytime without notice due to new policies by the government like the imposition of taxes and/or currency fluctuations or any other factors beyond our control.

Is SR2000 applicable on me?

As of September 2019, the repeat Umrah visa fee has been cancelled. And has been replaced by a new fee that is applicable to all pilgrims. The new visa rates are inclusive of that cost. 

I don't live in Pakistan. Can I apply for an umrah visa while abroad?

Unfortunately not. As sending passports by post or by hand is illegal from abroad to Pakistan, you will have to visit Pakistan to get an umrah visa from Pakistan. With E-visa, this might as well change in ner future. But we will update once confirmed.

I don't live in Rawalpindi/Islamabad. Can I still use your services?

By all means. After the introduction of E-visa, there is no need to visit us (you are welcome if you want to) or courier us passports. You can simply send us the scan copies of passport and a picture as per above and we will email you the Umrah visa. 

Do you assist in any other Saudi visa as well besides umrah visa?

Although we are planning on offering tourism visas in near future, subject to Saudi government’s progress on the plans, right now we are only offering umrah visas.

Do I need an OK to board stamp on my E-Visa?

Depending on the airline you travel with, the requirement maybe different. Please consult with us for it once the visa is issued. 

I live in a different country but have a Pakistani Passport/NICOP. Can I get an Umrah visa from Pakistan?

In most cases, yes. Please call us for more details.
