Umrah is the holiest desire of all believers in Islam, which includes traveling to the House of Allah to perform specific optional prayers. Unlike Hajj, which is mandatory for financially stable Muslims, Umrah is a beautiful supplementary prayer and can be performed any time throughout the year except those days of Hajj. As we know the visa of that particular destined country is important for travel to that place. Similarly, Saudi Umrah Visa is required to visit the Holy Kaabah in Arabia. It is a piece of good news for believers that Umrah visas are issued for free. However, it is ensured that Umrah visas are used for neither work nor residency and this is ensured through numerous checks by Saudi officials.

The application of Umrah visa requires an authenticated US travel agency which is in affiliation with travel companies in Saudi Arabia for providing Umrah visa services. Umrah visas are valid for a month i.e 30 days only and pilgrims are supposed to checkout from Arabia after that without delay. Another important thing to be ensured is that Umrah visas cannot be used for performing Hajj. Umrah visas can only be issued once the relevant authorities in Saudi Arabia approve and validate the documents provided by the applicant.

Those applying for Umrah visa under the age of 18 years should be traveling with family and at least one parent along with the notarized letter verifying the authority of a parent over the child in both English and Arabic with the signature of legal guardians or both parents of the child. Otherwise, the Umrah visa will not be issued. In case of Umrah visa for applicants who are converts to Islam by any other religion, an Islamic certificate approved by any Islamic center is required to be submitted along with other documents to get a valid Umrah visa.

Umrah and Hajj are the events which are marked by a large gathering of believers and the encounter to infection is a commonplace. Therefore, up to date documents of vaccination are required to be submitted along with other documents for Umrah visa. Last but not the least thing to be kept in mind by the female Umrah visa applicants under the age of 45, is the company of a Mehram, who is any relation to a woman to which marriage is not legal in Islam. In the case of a married woman, the husband is also considered Mehram to a woman. All necessary information should be provided by the Mehram validating their relation to the female pilgrim.
