A new method has just been introduced by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to enable Saudi women residents to obtain hajj permits without the need for a “mahram.” People can go to the Department of Civil Affairs under the Ministry of Interior to apply for a permit without a mahram.
The pilgrim’s companionship as well as the connection with the companion should be decided upon before selecting the online application category.
A foreign national residing in the nation who wants to apply for a hajj permit should get in touch with the Passport Department. The issuance of the Hajj Permit 1444 AH will start on 15 Shawwal, 5 May 2023, according to the announcement made by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.
The person needs to have the advised immunisations in order to get a hajj permit. The immunisation must be given no later than 10 days before to the start of the Hajj season, according to the Ministry, and only then will the applicant be granted a Hajj visa.
