Saudi Arabia will allow foreign pilgrims, between the age of 18 and 50, to enter the country to perform 'Umrah' (the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca) starting from Sunday onwards. This move marks the third phase of the gradual relaxation of Umrah services.

Pilgrims will be required to remain in quarantine for three days upon their arrival in the wake of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
