Get vaccinated Ten Days before Departure

Saudi Government has sent out instructions to all concerned ministries that the people arriving for Umrah and Hajj need to be given vaccine of viral diseases ten days before their departure to the Holy land.

In the past, the cases were recorded in which few people were affected from the viral diseases. The two holy cities are the centre of Hajj pilgrims and Umrah visitors and every year millions of visitors visit these places from all around the world.

The conditions in Saudi Arabia are different and the precautionary measures have to be taken in order to ensure the health and safety of the public. Especially Umrah and Hajj visitors are found to be very sensitive with the prevailing conditions and could not resist against the diseases.

The steps taken are good to improve the conditions for the Umrah and Hajj visitors. Ministry of Health Saudi Arabia ensures that the concerned authorities and ministries could be informed prior to any issue takes place in the region.

Earlier the UK government emphases on improving the conditions in the holy cities as their citizens were affected with the viral diseases during their visits for Hajj and Umrah.

The other Hajj and Umrah Ministries all over the world need to cooperate with Saudi Government so the improvement can be taken place in the health and safety areas. It is difficult to manage the huge crowd visiting the holy cities every year, and the different authorities have to play their part in the improvement of such conditions.
