Tourism companies: The period for stopping the issuance of Umrah visas may reach one month – Egypt


Adel Shaban, a member of the General Assembly of the Chamber of Tourism Companies, said that according to the Saudi agents, the period of suspension of issuing Umrah visas from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to all countries of the world may range from 15 to 30 days, until the completion of the precautionary measures to confront the Corona virus.

Shaaban told Al-Watan that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will ask the countries that send their pilgrims to the Kingdom to establish a quarantine in the travel ports “airports and ports” and give each traveler to the Kingdom a certificate stating that it is free from the Corona virus, in addition to the procedures that will be applied in the ports of the Kingdom.

He pointed out that there are some countries whose citizens will be prevented from traveling to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia permanently, after the emergence of confirmed cases of corona and deaths due to it.

In the same context, the Chamber of Tourism Companies is currently preparing a press release to reassure citizens who obtain Umrah visas and have not yet traveled.
