Ramadan 2021: Pilgrims must be Covid-19 immune to enter two Holy Mosques

Those who have recovered from the Covid-19 infection can also be issued a permit

Pilgrims performing Umrah during the holy month of Ramadan this year must either be vaccinated for or immune against the Covid-19 infection.

Saudi’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah took to Twitter to announce the necessary health requirements and procedures ahead of the beginning of the holy month. To issue an Umrah, prayer or visit permit, the applicant should have had both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, or spent 14 days after taking the first dose of the vaccine or recovered from the Covid-19 infection itself.

The Umrah, visit and prayer permits are to be issued through the Eatmarna or Tawakkalna apps. The permits must be shown through the Tawakkalna app to authenticate its validity and veracity.

The President General of the Grand Mosque and Prophet’s Mosques’ Affairs, Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al-Sudais, has said that the decision to only allow immunised people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 into two Holy Mosques reflects the government’s keenness on the safety of the worshippers.

Sheikh Al-Sudais called on all attendees to adhere to health regulations, Saudi Press Agency reported.

The kingdom reported 695 new cases of the coronavirus infection and seven related fatalities on April 5.
