It is been said on many unauthentic platforms that the Saudi authorities have announced to resume the flights for Umrah and other Visas. For me, it was important to verify because many of my friends were relying on my sources to give them accurate information. To confirm you, the people who are looking for December Umrah Packages are requested to stay calm and wait for a little. The decision has not been made yet. keep yourself glued with the latest updates coming from the Saudi Authorities, it will help you. Now coming to the News that popped out earlier.
The news came out from the WhatsApp groups on September 13 that Saudi Arabia has opened all the international flights and booking for the Umrah, and another type of visas has now been started. That was true but not completely. The Umrah ban has not been lifted but some necessary type of traveling is allowed by the authorities. It has been said that the specified categories of the travelers are allowed to travel and provided the names of those categories. This news was misunderstood by many people and came out to spread the fake news that Saudi Arabia has lifted the ban on international flights.
The complete ban on international flights would be open by January 1, 2021, and that is the only information as yet. You can think about booking the January or February Umrah packages if that suits you but you should wait, maybe the travel ban lifts earlier for December.
The Flights are open for the little scope of travelers. The urgently allowed travelers are the Public, Military Employees, Dimpomats and their family, public sector, non –private, Non-profit sectors’ employees, businessmen and their official staff, patients are allowed to move urgently who need urgent treatment from abroad, and those students who are studying abroad are allowed to leave Saudi Arabia anytime they want. The Sportsmen and people with humanitarian cases are also allowed to travel on special permission of the Saudi Authorities. The rest of the traveling categories would also open with time. What exactly are the things to do for you just after the ban on traveling has been lifted? Here are some of the tips to get the most important concerns covered.
