RIYADH — The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced that Sunday, 15 Dhu Al-Qaadah, corresponding to the 4th of June, is the last date on which pilgrims can issue Umrah permits.

The Ministry's decision to suspend the issuance of Umrah permits comes with the aim of preparing for Hajj 2023, and to receive the Hajj pilgrims from all over the world.

It has noted that the last date for Umrah pilgrims to depart is on the 18th of June.

The Umrah visa does not allow pilgrims to perform the rituals of Hajj, the Ministry confirmed.
