The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has announced that this year’s pilgrimage, which takes place from 17 to 22 July 2021, will be limited to 60,000 pilgrims who reside in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Anyone travelling from the UK to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj will not be permitted to enter the country, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and emergence of new variants around the world.

More information and general advice on Hajj is available on the TRAVAX (for health professionals) and fitfortravel (for the general public) websites.
