No Umrah Fee of SR 2000 on Your First Umrah in Each Islamic Year
I am sure that you were sad when you read about the new Umrah fee which is SR 2000. There has been many fake news published in past in which it has been said that the Government of Saudi Arabia has removed this news Umrah fee but there was no reality in this. But yes, the government was considering to change the fee because not all Muslims cannot afford this.
To welcome pilgrims to Saudi Arabia, the government also promised to pay their Umrah fee if they are performing Umrah for the first time but you had to pay the Umrah fee of SR 2000 if you want to perform Umrah second or third time etc.
But today the policy of Umrah fee has been once again amend which will bring happiness in you if you want to perform Umrah but you are worried about Umrah fee.
As per the new policy, you will only pay the fee of Umrah if you are coming to Saudi Arabia second or multiple time. There is no Umrah fee of 2000 on your first Umrah in each Islamic year. This means that you can perform one Umrah each year without paying any Umrah fee.
The dates will be affect as per Islamic year. For second Umrah in same Islamic year, you need to pay 2000 Saudi Riyals as Umrah visa fee.
So, if you have already performed Umrah after 1st Muharram and want to perform another Umrah before next 1st Muharram then you will need to pay Umrah fee where if you want to perform an other visa after 1st Muharram then you will not pay any extra Umrah fee of SR 2000.
