Every pilgrim is compelled to be ready for his Umrah pilgrimage after a couple of years of hiatus. They should have to fulfill all the requirements to perform Umrah. Today, we have compiled a list of details regarding the Umrah vaccine as one of the important aspects of Umrah these days:
The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced that a complete vaccination of Covid-19 with one of the approved Covid-19 vaccines is needed for all the pilgrims who are about to perform Umrah this year. Here is a list of the approved Covid-19 vaccines in Saudi Arabia:
The Ministry of Umrah and Hajj confirmed that the pilgrims from the UK who want to perform Umrah are not needed a negative covid 19 test in order to enter Saudi Arabia. In addition, pre-travel consultation is suggested for the travelers to review immunization status of adults, children, infants and adolescents. Health authorities must also give awareness to their pilgrims regarding all sorts of infectious diseases, complications, symptoms and methods of prevention and transmission, specifically the flu pandemic. So, you do need vaccine for umrah.
If a health emergency outbreaks an international concern of a particular disease, to standard health regulations in any country which comes from a pilgrim, Saudi health authorities might have more precautions against those pilgrims coming from that specific country, in coordination with the WHO in a timely fashion, to avoid the spread of that particular disease or infection among the pilgrims of umrah and hajj, or to transport the infection to other countries.
