According to reports, Saudi Arabia has prohibited natives and residents from completing Umrah without authorization.
Anyone who are interested in completing the Umrah must obtain a permit, according to Osama al-Hajili, Secretary of the Haramain Shareefain administration. The Nusuk and Tawakkalna applications make this possible for both foreigners and Saudi nationals residing in Saudi Arabia.
Last week, the Nusuk app—which may be used to apply for a permit to undertake Umrah during Ramadan—was unveiled by the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah. The Kingdom’s official website for organising the entire pilgrimage—from applying for an eVisa to reserving lodging and flights—is Nusuk, formerly known as Eatmarna.
Al-Hajili also advised individuals who intended to undertake Umrah to organise their trip prudently and keep the Haram’s throng in mind. He added locals would be advised to choose a more suitable time because the holy month of Ramazan sees a sizable influx of visitors.
