Jeddah: Pilgrims can pre-book their slots for Umrah pilgrimage via online from July 30. Saudi News Agency reported this by quoting the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

The ministry has directed the pilgrims to apply for Umrah through the colour-coded system in the ‘Eatmarna’ app. Through the app, pilgrims can book their slot easily, according to the capacity of the Masjid al-Haram of Mecca.

The ministry has issued an order stating that the pilgrims will have to wear mask while performing Umrah in the Grand Mosque. The authorities will prohibit pilgrims from carrying unauthorised luggage inside the mosque.

If a pilgrim tests positive for Covid 19 or the authorities find that the pilgrim had close contact with a Covid-affected person through ‘Tawakkalna’ app, the permit of the respective pilgrim will be cancelled.
