Health protection guidance for Hajj 2019 can be found on the following websites:
Saudi Ministry of Health (MoH) requirements 2019
The Saudi MoH has issued their requirements and recommendations for entry visas for the Hajj and Umrah in 2019. These are updated annually.
In addition the Saudi MoH website includes useful health information and resources for pilgrims to Saudi Arabia.
Information leaflet and poster
We have produced an information leaflet that details how Hajj pilgrims can manage travel-associated risks to enable them to protect themselves, their family and the wider community.
We have also produced an infographic poster which recommends that Hajj pilgrims prepare themselves for travel by visiting their GP six to eight weeks before departure.
The poster may be displayed in GP surgeries, mosques, social clubs and other venues where they may be seen by those planning to go to Hajj or Umrah. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the information leaflet above.
They are both available in the following languages:
