Umrah app issues 650,000 permits

According to the Saudi Ministry, the third phase of Umrah resumption is started, and the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has so far issued more than 650,000 electronic Umrah permits as of Oct 23.

This comes as part of the gradual resumption of Umrah entering its third phase, where 20,000 pilgrims a day can perform their Umrah amid strict social distancing measures aiming at stopping the spread of coronavirus cases, which have seen a sharp rise in recoveries.

Dr. Amr Al-Maddah, the undersecretary at the Ministry for Hajj and Umrah, said pilgrims who have been given Umrah permits but who later find that they have developed COVID-19 symptoms or come into contact with infected people can cancel their registration.
