The Following Requirements Must be Met in Order to Qualify for a Hajj or Umrah Visa

Applicants must have a passport valid for at least six months or more.

The passport should have at least two empty visa pages adjacent to each other.

Each applicant must submit two recent passport size colour photographs with a white background.

Women are required to travel for Hajj with a Mahram/Husband. Proof of kinship must be submitted with the application form. For couples, this proof is their nikah nama (marriage certificate), for brothers and sisters it is their birth certificates, for uncles/grandfathers and nieces/granddaughters it will be notarised copies of their birth certificates (if you fall into this category, please contact us for more details).

Any woman over the age of 45 may travel without a Mahram with an organised group.

Applicants must submit proof of vaccination for meningitis and ACYW135. For infants and children up to 15 years of age, a vaccination report is required for polio as well as meningitis. Children over 15 years of age should present the same vaccinations requested for adults. The certificate of vaccination should have been issued no more than three years ago and not less than 10 days prior to entering Saudi Arabia.

If someone is new to Islam and has a non-Muslim name, a confirmation letter or a certificate from a mosque or an Islamic center stating that the applicant is a Muslim is required.

Insha'Allah if all the above is fulfilled, then we expect the visa to be issued - if Allah wills - at the discretion of the Saudi Embassy.
