A statement by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, urged all concerned with the passages of pilgrims for the month of Ramadan, 2nd April to 2nd May, to start the travel arrangement early so as to enable pilgrims to enjoy hassles free pilgrimage.
The ministry added that wearing of face mask while performing Umrah especially at the Grand Mosque is still compulsory as that is the only means by which a greater number of pilgrims would be accommodated.
