No ceiling on Umrah pilgrim numbers

RIYADH, August 4, 2021

There is no specific ceiling on the number of Umrah pilgrims during the new Umrah season, said Saudi Arabia's Deputy Minister of Hajj Dr Abdul Fattah Mashat.
However, the number should not run counter to safety requirements and the precautionary regulations in place, he was quoted as saying in a Saudi Gazette report.
Mashat said the authorities concerned have been directed to extend the necessary support to the licensed companies and are awaiting a response.
