UAE launches Two simple ways to get Umrah visa without a travel agent

Asma Ahmed - | UAE

Embarking on a sacred journey to the holiest sites in Islam often involves meticulous planning, including obtaining the necessary visa.

Traditionally, travelers have relied on travel agents to arrange Umrah packages, typically starting at Dh3,000. However, during peak periods such as the first 20 days of Ramadan, these costs can soar by up to 25 percent, as revealed by industry insiders.

For those considering applying for an Umrah visa independently, there are two primary avenues to explore:

  1. Official Website Method: Utilizing Saudi Arabia's official website simplifies the visa application process. Here's how:

    • Navigate to https://visa.mofa.gov.sa/ and access the 'Services for Visitors' section.
    • Click on the 'Haj and Umrah eVisa Application Form' and proceed to 'Apply'.
    • Complete the application form by providing personal information and creating an account.
    • Submit the application for embassy processing.

Nusuk App Method: The Nusuk app offers a convenient platform for visa applications and more. Follow these steps:

  • Download the Nusuk app and register your account.
  • Access the 'Performing Umrah, Your Journey Awaits' section on the home page and click 'Apply'.
  • Choose the Umrah package that aligns with your preferences.
  • Input traveler details, including health status and wheelchair requirements, for up to nine individuals.
  • Select pilgrimage dates and preferred time slots.
  • Review and agree to the terms and conditions before finalizing and submitting the application.

Both methods provide straightforward pathways to secure an Umrah visa, offering travelers the flexibility to choose the approach that best suits their needs. Whether opting for the official website or the user-friendly Nusuk app, pilgrims can navigate the visa application process with ease and in anticipation of their forthcoming spiritual journey.
