Saudi Ministry of Tourism: Visit Visa Doesn’t Entitle its Holder to Perform Hajj

The Saudi Ministry of Tourism stressed that the visit visa, of all types and names, does not entitle its holder to perform Hajj in accordance with the regulations and instructions in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s regulations mandate a 10,000 riyal fine for anyone violating Hajj regulations without a permit. This applies to citizens, residents, and visitors inside Mecca, the central region, holy sites, the Al-Haramain train station in Al-Rusaifah, and control centers. Violators without a Hajj permit are deported and banned from re-entering the Kingdom for a legally specified period.

The Saudi Ministry stated that security authorities will impose a double fine of 10,000 riyals for repeated violations. It also emphasized the importance of adhering to Hajj regulations and instructions to ensure the guests of God enjoy security, safety, comfort, and reassurance during their rituals.

The Ministry of Tourism urges all visitors to the Kingdom, regardless of visa type, to follow approved pledges and review the instructions before obtaining a visa. It is important to note that failure to do so may result in violations of the regulations.
