Saudi Arabia Ministry of Hajj & Umrah rejected rumours across social media and few new websites regarding the cancellation of Umrah Visa fees.
Earlier the news was spread in many Pakistani websites ans social media that the Ministry of Hajj & Umrah has cancelled the Umrah Visa Fees of 2000 SAR (Saudi Riyals) which was charged for second and subsequent visitors.
The first time entry of Hajj and Umrah pilgrims will be free, but for the second time and subsequent entries after that will be charged SAR 2, 000. Usama Khan, from the Ministry of Hajj confirmed that.
This will be difficult for the people who couldn’t pay SAR 2000 for Umrah Visa visiting second time, but will be good for the Ministry of Saudi Arabia in terms of Revenue growth.
