Umrah from UAE


UAE residents can travel to perform Umrah in 2 ways:

  • By taking a Umrah package provided by various tour operators. The package includes air tickets or bus services, hotel accommodation and guides (optional).
  • By obtaining a Umrah visa from Saudi consulate or from other Govt-approved Umrah operators.

Saudi Arabia government banned entry of foreigners and expats by private vehicles last year. Therefore, the options of travelling are now limited to luxury bus trips or flying to Jeddah. The Government of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also prefers that Umrah performers book with authorised travel agents in order to ease the tracking of the foreigners arriving into the country.

  2. Dear Team,

    I have the same question as posted above by NasarUllah Sherbaz.,

    I am a resident of UAE and I want to plan the umrah with my Mother possibly in November. She is in Pakistan. I want to plan a umrah in a way that she can join me by connecting flight from Pakistan or if she can come here on visit visa but can go directly to Pakistan after performing umrah. What are the possibilities and if there is any, what will be the package?

    Kind Regards!
