Passport department officials deployed to King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah on Sunday called for the return of Umrah pilgrims stopping due to travel restrictions.
According to Saudi news agency SPA, passport authorities have dealt with immigration proceedings for the return of Umrah pilgrims whose expired visas.
The operation was carried out in front of the Hajj and Umrah records online.
It should be noted that according to Saudi law, fines and penalties are imposed on the stay of Umrah visas, while such persons are also blacklisted.
By issuing royal decrees, the Umrah pilgrims who had been stopped were relieved of fines and imprisonment.
All arrangements for the return of Umrah pilgrims were made under the care of the 'caretaker committee'.
The passport department said in its statement that the pilgrims returning home from the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, Ministry of Health, Civil Aviation and King Abdul Aziz Airport Jeddah were welcomed at the airport while precautions were taken to prevent the spread of the new Corona virus. went-
