Saudi Embassy. Umrah Visa Fees Must Fall

The weekly Cabinet session was chaired by Vice Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Prince Mohammed bin Naif at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah.

As per the new decisions, a one-time entry visa fee will be SR2,000, but the state will bear this fee if a visitor is coming to the Kingdom for the first time to perform Haj or Umrah.

The multiple exit/re-entry visa fee will be SR3,000 for six months, SR5,000 for one year and SR8,000 for two years.

The transit visa fee will be SR300.

The departure visa fee will be SR50 for those leaving the Kingdom through seaports.

The exit/re-entry visa fees will be as follows:

• SR200 for a single trip for two months as maximum and SR100 for each additional month, within the limits of the duration of the residence permit’s validity.

• SR500 for multiple trips for three months and SR200 for each additional month within the limits of the duration of the residence permit’s validity.

A royal decree has been prepared for this purpose and the attached decision’s draft stipulates that the application of the provisions of this decision shall be as of Muharram 1, 1438, corresponding to Oct. 2, 2016.

Do sign it as I personally think this is ridiculous. 

May Allah take us Haramain Shareefain over and over again with aafiyat and taqwa. Aameen.

  1. It is ridiculous. It is said that when visiting Allah’s house, You’ll always undergo some difficulty, either with regards to having to sacrifice your wealth, or problems at the airport etc. But when you get there and just look at the Ka’bah, Its all worth it. Aameen
