The Saudi Ministry of Public Security has introduced regulations regarding entry permits for the upcoming Hajj season in Makkah.

From May 4, pilgrims will need entry permits to go into the holy city.

The unauthorized entry will be strictly prohibited by the authorities.

Individuals who possess valid residence permits, Umrah permits, or Hajj permits issued by relevant authorities will be exempt from these restrictions.

However, any Saudi citizens, residents, or non-residents without proper authorization will not be allowed to enter Makkah and will be required to return vehicles without permits.
