UMRAH package agents stand to lose about RM300 million in business after Saudi Arabia suspended the minor Muslim pilgrimage to curb the spread of Covid-19, said Umrah and Hajj Tourism Agency Association (Papuh) president Razali Mohd Sham.

He said the suspension is expected to affect at least 50,000 Malaysian pilgrims who had planned to go on umrah.
